Wow! A friend suggested doing podcasts as a way of promoting myself and my books, referring me to someone who books podcasts. She did mainly non-fiction and business so she in turn referred me to someone else. This person thought the books sounded great, I was interesting but ultimately she was concerned that anyone checking my website would be put off by the issues I cared about and she decided I’d be too hard to book!
So this means caring about human and animal rights and being against genocide and war atrocities is controversial?????? Oh lord, say it isn’t so.

I don’t think everyone has to agree with my ideas, but I can’t believe that any host or interviewer would have a problem with being against war and cruelty. Besides, I really want to talk about my books and the role of women in the world through the ages.
