Hello Ireland!

Tomorrow at 2:30 pm Ireland time (I THINK – it’s 9:30 my time on the east coast if it helps you any. Have I mentioned time zones make me dizzy?)  I’ll be on Newstalk 106-108fm talking about Everything I Know About Love, I Learned from Romance Novels.

YOU GUYS. I bought a new phone for this one. One that isn’t cordless, doesn’t hum or drop out at odd moments (like when the wind blows) and is plain and boring and plugs into the wall. It was all of $7, or, if you’re in Ireland, 5.25 Euro. The problem is, the cord isn’t long enough to reach the bathroom where I usually hide during interviews, so you might hear a whining dog or maybe an outraged elderly cat who is incensed that I haven’t fed him, despite it being 930 in the morning.

Either way, Hello Ireland!

    Hello yourself!  Can we organise a press junket for you to visit Ireland in person?  I’ll buy the beers.

    Aerlingus has an inexpensive, direct flight from JFK to Ireland, than another direct 1:45 hour flight from Dublin to Budapest. I can arrange a press junket here too! :-)

    Hello right back at ya! I’ll definitely be listening, and will also be happy to buy you beer (or cider, or wine, or spirits, whatever you’re having!) if that press junket can be arranged :-)

    Lol, I wondered how long it would take for beer to be mentioned! I’m Irish and I’ve never had a single one! Anyway, I listen to that station sometimes, so I’ll tune in.

    Thank you!! I actually captured the audio (I cannot believe I remembered to do it!). I had so much fun doing that interview – except for the slugs and spiders part EEEEEEEP!

    If I could get myself to Ireland or the UK, I’d LOVE it. That would be amazing. I wonder if there’s a bookstore that’d like to collaborate on an event!

    Heh heh, I enjoyed the spiders part beforehand, but then they don’t bother me in real life either.

    We’d love to have you here in Ireland! The UK is obviously a way bigger market, but if you are interested, Easons on O’Connell St in Dublin is probably the most well known bookshop for signing events, though Waterstones and Hodges Figgis (both on Dawson St) are also good. I got to meet Germaine Greer at a signing in Hodges Figgis a few years ago. I kinda like the idea of getting your book signed there too :-)

    I missed it :( What’s this about spiders? I can’t stand them.

    I also agree with the commenter who suggested Easons, Waterstones and Hodges Figgis – personally, I think Waterstones is the nicest. Do come!

    That was a really engaging interview, and it goes without saying that we’d *love* to have you in Ireland! Like a previous commenter says, the UK is a much bigger market but could you squeeze us in on the way? Ah go on ;)

    Easons in O’Connell St hosts a lot of book signings but I’ve a soft spot for indies.. might I suggest the Gutter Bookshop in Dublin?

    Could the audio you captured be made into a podcast???  That would be cool!

    Just thought some readers might be interested in the link for your appearance on Newstalk. Not sure if it’s possible to listen to outside Ireland, but if it is, Sarah is on Friday 7th in the second part at about 35.00 mins in.
