CBS 6 Interview!!!

http://wtvr.com/2013/01/04/virginia-this-morning-young-adult-author-rachel-coker/

I woke up at the crack of dawn this morning and headed into Richmond to be interviewed for the second time this year by our local CBS 6 “Virginia This Morning” show. My stomach was a flurry of butterflies, but God heard all of your prayers and completely put me at ease. Plus, the anchors and crew were so completely sweet and encouraging, which definitely helped!

Even though this is the second time I’ve been interviewed on TV, my mom and I haven’t gotten over how surreal the experience with, and we proceeded to take a million photos like the cheesy homeschoolers we are. 😛

So watch the video and let me know what you think!!!!

    Can I say “I’m so proud of you” without sounding condescending or mothering? 🙂 What a great honor. You’re a very special young lady.

    that is so cool! I don’t think I would be able to look as calm and collected as you 🙂 I get the worst stage fright and have a really awful fear of public speaking!

    Great interview! You didn’t look (or sound) nervous at all! 🙂 And you looked very lovely. 😉

    I love the part when you talked about looking at both your books on the shelf and thinking how beautiful they were. I love that! 🙂 Really. I’m pretty sure that’s something I’d do…

    WOW RACHEL!! You didn’t even break a sweat! 🙂 I’ve never read any of your books, though I’ve been following your blog for several months now, but with every post you make me want to read them more and more! 🙂 I’m 14 years old, and you are such a role model for me. Published at sixteen? I think you can guess what thoughts are running through my head. 😉 Your blog is so inspiring for me. I’m writing a historical novel, and when the going gets tough, it’s almost always your blog that keeps me going and encourages me. Congrats on Chasing Jupiter!!!! And I bet it really did feel AWESEOME to hold that book in your hand! 🙂
