My Guest Slot on Totally Driven Radio

Published May 2, 2014 by Maryanne

Totally Driven

I had such a great time promoting my book “On the Guest List: Adventures of a Music Journalist” on Bay Ragni’s show “Totally Driven.”

Host Bay Ragni was “totally awesome.” He knew so much about music and asked great questions. We talked about Joan Jett, Cyrinda Foxe, original Plasmatics drummer Stu Deutsch, me getting locked in Max’s Kansas and so much more!

The show is now archived so anyone can listen. I’m the first guest: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/totallydriven/2014/05/02/totally-driven-radio-78

Book Reading/Signing Bergenfield Library, New Jersey

I had an amazing time this morning at the Bergenfield Library, where I did a book reading and signing for my first book: “On the Guest List: Adventures of a Music Journalist” (available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/162903908X).

It was an excellent turn out! All the seats were filled! For the past several months I’ve been doing a lot of public speaking, but reading from your own book and having people enjoy it and say things like, “You were delightful” was phenomenal!

I shared several stories from my book including: My first concert (Meat Loaf), my friendship with the late Cyrinda Foxe, getting locked in Max’s Kansas City and hanging out with The Bay City Rollers!

I sold several books and I am ecstatic!

I love my lucky “Billy Cat” bag from my friend Shaolin.

I carry the books in here, it brings me good luck!

I enjoyed meeting new people I haven’t met before!

SAM_4060Friends who actually found me via this blog!

They were at the Annabella Lwin show last fall and saw my blog about the show!

Hello All!

I am absolutely thrilled by all the hard work Darlene Foster (www.darlenefoster.com) did in putting together the cover for my upcoming book, “On the Guest List.”

She was truly an asset to my vision and went above and beyond my expectations.

It’s such a blessing to have such creative people involved in my vision.

The next several months I’ll be poking around seeking the perfect self-publishing company and plan on having my book out by Spring 2014.

I’ve hired a couple promoters and check out my Face Book page – I’m thrilled by all the positive comments! https://www.facebook.com/maryanne.christianomistretta.1

So, moving along as planned!
