Help Me Write My Next Book; Win Gratitude, Karma!

I need funny, bizarre blind date stories for a book that will come out next year. Tales with happy endings are welcome, but let’s face it, terrible dates usually make better stories. I’d especially like stories of dates set up by mutual friends, family or matchmaker, though great online-dating stories are welcome, too.

They can be short or long, however long it takes to tell the tale. (I’m guessing these will be stories you’ve told before.) I will change names and details to disguise you, and I will edit the writing, so don’t worry about polishing it. If you’d rather tell me the story over the phone than e-mail it, that’s fine too.

Please forward this call for submissions widely, along with my e-mail, letsmeet@virginiavitzthum.com.

Thank you, thank you, thank you

on Internet radio this Sunday at 7 pm: Me!

you can listen to me on Writers Revealed with Felicia Sullivan here on Sunday 7/8/07 at 7 pm and thereafter. We’ll be chatting about writing and dating and maybe I’ll critique some profiles.

Felicia’s not only a radio personality, but has a great memoir coming out this winter. I guarantee it will stop you complaining about your own mother.

Today Show appearance

I’ll be on discussing dating blogs for 3 minutes or so some time between 8 and 9.

Today Show Take 2

As of now, I will be on the Today Show this Saturday 3/31 between 8 and 9 commenting on dating blogs. Twas the death of Anna Nicole Smith that bumped me before, so I’m half afraid her drug-stuffed corpse will rise tomorrow and steal my slot again. (It is almost Easter.) For all our sakes, let’s pray that America’s tragic sweetheart rests in the peace she could never find here.
