I handed my media kit out to her and we talked for a while in her office. She said that I could do book signing there and might to do another event to discuss about my book. How happy I was! I told her probably in August I would do it and she asked me to email her to prepare and set up everything.
As my thanks to her, I am going to donate one copy of my book to the local library she is leading.
Another news I am still waiting from my store manager who is still in his vacation now. He has helped me submitting my media kit to Wal-Mart Home Office. I didn't expect to much for the result. They will accept or not, it doesn't matter because he has already given me permission to do book signing at the store whenever I want to. That's cool, isn't it?
Now I still keep in touch with a friend as a representative of one of Indonesia publsihing companies to discuss about my book right they are going to buy it. They have wide distrubution to many areas in Indonesia from east to west (from Sumatera to Papua). Because of the channels they have, I believe my book will be in a good hand.
So have you heard my last interview at The Authors Show yesterday? I said to my husband I didn't like the result of the voice. It sounds so different. As I know my voice has strong pronounciation and articulation especially I'm from Java but I didn't expect that my voice was so oppostite. It happened probably I talked too close on the phone. The message is good but I just don't like its voice. I wish someday I'm able to show on the television and you will know my real voice.
By the way, I have some responses from friends in Facebook after they heard my interview:
Nancy Dinar: "I'm really impressed. You've delivered a wonderful message."
Maria Coleman: "It's great! Ndak keliatan kalo interviewnya udah 'dirancang' dari jauh hari."
Viviana Andrew: "I wish to see you in the TV version, but it was another author. I wish to see you on TV. Your voice is perfect as a teacher . . . You spoke slowly and clearly."
Thank you for your appreciation. I hope one day I can make it much better. (*)
