Unfortunately, they had difficulty with her call because she was calling on a cell phone and they couldn't transmit it without her sounding like a robot. BUT, she sounded calm, cool and collected and I wish I could have heard much more. I asked her to write about this experience with KNON.
Hey man - here is the post that I just put on Facebook to Eric Schultz. (and the questions that I emailed to him) ---
Eric, thank you so much for having me on your KNON Lone Star Dead show last night. I really enjoyed talking to you about my novel, 'Scarlet Begonias' - High-brow sci-fi for hippies. Sorry the cell phone reception was so bad, I hope you'll have me on again during your pledge drive - I'll be sending over a few more books to give away.
I wanted to ask the listeners a few questions. I'm compiling a list of responses for a youtube talk show channel I'm working on to promote my book. I'll be posting the questions on my blog today, I'd love to hear your responses. Thanks again! SciFiSteph.com
Here are the questions that I wanted to ask for an interactive twitter exchange. Since I wasn’t able to ask them on the air – please offer your responses here. I can’t wait to read them!
1) What are your favorite Grateful Dead songs? What are your favorite lines of lyrics? – I was lucky enough to get permission from Ice Nine Publishing & Robert Hunter to print my favorite line from Scarlet Begonias – “Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right” – Thank you to them again!
2) Did you ever have a major epiphany at a GD show? If so, please describe – which show? How were you transformed? -- check out my post about my first show
3) Do you think accelerated evolution is possible? If so, describe what that would even mean and the possible ways to achieve it. Have you ever had an unexpected gust of evolution?
4) Do you think it’s possible to unravel your ego? If so, why would you want to do it? Is it good or bad to have an ego with a large gravitational pull?
5) Have you ever read the Carlos Castaneda books? If so, which ones? How did they impact your belief system?
6) Can you lucid dream? Please share your experiences – even if you tried, but weren’t able to do it.
7) What do you think about the new Higgs-Boson discovery? -- read my made-up article (about a real scientific dilemma) about the drifting mass of the International Prototype Kilogram on my website (book page) and give your thoughts – Can something exist if it can’t be measured?
8) Do you ever have unusual levels of serendipity or coincidences? Do you ever get affirmations or signs from the universe? Please share.
