As heard on The Writing Show

Author and blogger Paula Berinstein interviewed me for The Writing Show last month and has posted an MP3 that you can download to your MP3 player or listen to on your computer (click the subhead that reads, “Download and Listen to Dick Margulis MP3 Here”).

We spent about half of the hour and twenty-two mintues on editing and about half on book design, focusing on what the self-publishing author needs to know about those topics. In listening to the interview, I now know that I say “y’know” way too often. I’ll have to work on that. I also apparently can’t recall the difference between Flip Wilson and Lily Tomlin. But I digress. Overall, I think the interview went well and anyone who listens will learn something from it—if only what I sound like.

The above link includes a photo (I was in a good mood, as the picture was taken at my wedding—after I took off my jacket but before I ditched the tie; so, yes, that’s what passes for a smile); Paula is a lot better looking than I am, though.

Dick, what a wonderful beard! Makes you look very wise.

And now that I've listed to a good deal of the MP3 file, I can say that even if you don't want to call yourself wise, Dick, you do explain quite well what it is editors do. I enjoyed the episode. Despite your claim to curmudgeonhood, I think your authors are in good hands.

Thanks, Katharine. Coming from you, that means a lot.

You look like a UNIX system administrator who's just heard about a new major security hole in Windows ;^)

You must know some unusual UNIX sysadmins if any of them look as old as I do. In my experience, they generally run screaming from the building before they turn thirty and are next seen panhandling on the sidewalk, muttering something about stupid users.
