There was a little confusion in the comments, and Mr Husband explained it all there, but I am going repost here for confused comment-spurners:

I am going to be on Cover to Cover (NPR) TOMORROW NIGHT (that's Sunday, July 31st) at 8 PM tp 9 PM Eastern Standard Time.

The phone number, should you wish to call in and ask me non-spoilery questions about gods in Alabama or the writing life or Faster than Kudzu or the care and feeding of Newts, is HERE. (DIGRESSION: My newt, FIG, has become EXTREMELY huge and fat while I was on Vacation. He is SO big I feel Maisy's little teeny Daisy Flower Newt may be in some danger...Are newts cannibals?)

If you aren't in Georgia, but still want to listen, you can find a link to the LISTEN ONLINE function HERE.

I'm nervous and excited and a dork.

You'll do just fine! I just finished up a radio interview last week and on August 20, I'll be on World Talk Radio on the Single Talk Show. Now, what's more scarier knowing that people that you know online can log in and hear you make a fool of yourself and not only that, it'll be archived so that whenever they want a good laugh, they can listen again? Now that's scary. Okay, trying to cheer you up probably is not working. But I will say this. They do get easier the more you do them. Good luck and I hope you sell millions of books!

Is there some Radio version of TIVO to listen to it later? I won't be able to tonight and I really want to!

Yea! 8:00 p.m. Sunday. That makes more sense! Good luck--I'm sure you'll do well, Joshilyn.

Heather -- it's 5pm Mountain STANDARD time. 6pm if you're somewhere that does Daylight Savings Time. When I was in Arizona for a conference last May, I just finally decided to think of it as being in the Pacific time zone so my brain didn't explode (I've never lived somewhere that didn't do DST).

Joss, I do radio every day, you'll do fine. Everyone is nervous before and after, but when you are discussion something you've a passion for you can't help but be interesting. The second plus going for you is your personality.

Break a pencil lead girl.
