Carina Press executive editor Angela James was on The Marilyn Denis Show this morning, which is a live national broadcast in Canada. Live. Also, national. And LIVE TELEVISION. Wowser! I was trying to watch the live feed but couldn’t get it to work. But no worries: the clip of Angie’s appearance is up on the Marilyn.ca website already!
Angie’s segment was all about digital reading devices, and how women romance readers are a driving force in the development of the digital reading market. She demonstrated the different devices, gave a brief overview of the differences between the Kindle, the Sony Pocket, and the Kobo, and explained the best way to keep one dry when reading in the bathtub.
I cannot even imagine the stress of a live national television appearance, but with a studio audience of receptive and eager viewers, and a host who took both romance and digital reading seriously, that was a home run for romance reader exposure, and Angie hit it out of the park. Way to go!
(NB: The total giggle on my part: I’ve been working for most of the day on an article for Kirkus about the good and bad of reading romance digitally. I have one more excellent source to cite now!)
