This is the email which I sent to a whole pile of people -- some of you have already seen it, prolly, so sorry for the repeat.
Hi everybody, and sorry about the mass mail -- it just seemed like this was the fastest way to tell you all at once. The most extraordinary thing has just happened.
I've just been interviewed by CNN.
Tomorrow (July 28th), at 9 and 10 in the morning, they will be airing a segment about "Five Ways to Make a Difference Without Spending a Dime." The intern who was researching the segment happened to see my book on Amazon.com and decided that I was just the "expert" (her word, not mine!) she needed to speak with about it. So she called me and I spent half an hour going over information with her from the book.
I don't know if you'll hear my voice or even my name mentioned on the air, but there will also be information at www.cnnmoney.com (the intern said she'd send me the link, I'll pass it on when it comes) about the whole thing, and that *should* include my name and information. So...yeah. I've been interviewed by CNN.
Who wants to come pinch me and prove I'm not dreaming? :)
Your friendly neighborhood
