Hand Me Down is going to make her TV debut tomorrow morning on Good Morning Texas! Hand Me Down was chosen by Gwen Reyes as part of Fresh Fiction’s Buy the Book segment, and will be highlighted with several other books on television! TV! I’m so glad my beautiful, composed book will be my first TV appearance and I don’t have to stress about how I look and sound and come across, or what might come out of my mouth, or the million other ways I could embarrass myself. My book, she’s a pro, and always looks classy. I’m not even nervous!
In fact, after watching some of the previous segments of Buy the Book, I’m so excited to see what Gwen has to say about Hand Me Down. I’m especially honored because tomorrow’s theme is Heroes: “What is a hero? It can be anything from a sister taking care of her sibling, a single mom struggling to raise a family, to a uniformed officer. Today we’re exploring heroes in fiction with something for everyone.”
You notice that “sister taking care of her sibling” line? Yeah, that’s a reference to my book.
If you’re in Texas, tune in tomorrow morning at 9 am central, WFAA channel 8. Those of us not in Texas will have to wait until the show’s producers upload the video to their website. I will post when it’s live. I hope you’ll come back and join me in celebrating my baby’s first TV appearance.
Cross your fingers there are more to come.
