"We're always in the
midst of a chase.

Going after a dream...

Chasing a fantasy...

And making it a
reality.

This is what I write
about.

Life is about the chase."

Interviews – Rachelle Chase

One minute, I was getting ready to meet a friend for lunch — and 45-minutes later, I was at Dog Eared Books being interviewed by Mike Sugerman on CBS! Check out the interview.

I was expecting to be a quick “sound bite” in the story, so imagine my shock. I LOVED seeing (and hearing!) Mr. Sugerman reading my book – did you catch his “It’s well-written” at the end? I’m so thrilled!

But, enough about me. :-) What do YOU think – do romance covers embarrass you and prevent you from reading them in public?

Oh, if you didn’t see the New York Times article, “Lusty Tales and Hot Sales: Romance E-Books Thrive,” you might want to check it out, too.

Woman Jumping for JoyOn Thursday, I was invited to be on The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet!

So, Sunday night I arrived in New York. Today, there was a day-in-the-life video shoot and tomorrow I go on the show LIVE.

Sure, I’m excited but … can you spell s-c-a-r-e-d? (LOL) For those of you who check out my blog regularly, you know how I love to make myself the butt of my own jokes. But that’s only on my blog — not on television!

So, pleeeease keep your fingers crossed for me! And, if you’re able to catch the show, visit The Morning Show site to see where it’ll air near you! I hope you can watch it — but, only if I do okay. (LOL)

Oh, and by the way, I’ll be talking about my humongous fibroids.

More later.

When my publicist, Victor Gulotta, emailed me to say I was going to be a guest on Playboy Radio, my mouth fell open.“Oh my God, I am so not a Bunny!”

He reassured me. Not to worry, I was going to be a Play Date.

“Oh my God. What’s a Play Date? I’m not a Play Date, either!”

He assured me that he and the producer felt I’d be perfect for the show. And even more good news: 2.5 million listeners.

2.5 million listeners?!

Needless to say, for my first ever radio appearance to be with Playboy, in front of millions of listeners, I was both excited and nervous.

But off to Los Angeles I flew.At the radio station, host Tara Mack and show producer, Kevin Dalton, walked me through the details. There would be rhyming games, guessing games and more, all geared to test the ‘dating’ skills of male callers. Callers would provide answers and I would judge the appeal of the answer to a woman, thereby deciding the caller’s fate: Whether he’d remain on the line and/or win prizes or get disconnected, thereby ending the ‘date.’

Five … four … three … two … one … We’re on the air.

The show is fast-paced, with a Beat the Clock kind of feel. Feeling like Speed Racer, I zipped through the answer to Tara’s question on where I got my ideas for my books, unknowingly racing towards Life’s Most Embarrassing Moment #1.

In the midst of a game where callers had to create unique verses to Roses Are Red, Tara turned to me, “Rachelle, do you know a word that rhymes with ‘poet’?”

I smiled, saw the word ‘Moët’ in my mind, and blurted, “Mow it!”

Oh. My. God. I’d just mispronounced a word that – when pronounced correctly – doesn’t even rhyme with ‘poet’ in front of 2.5 million listeners. My panicked brain searched for a way to save face – like, maybe I could suddenly develop a Southern accent and claim my mispronounciation was due to my accent.

Tara, gracious as well as a radio personality extraordinaire, zoomed in with the save, letting me cop the writer’s block excuse.

Onward to Life’s Most Embarrassing Moment #2.

Determined to redeem myself after the ‘Moët’ debacle, I saw my opportunity. A caller had to rhyme with ‘yellow’ but couldn’t.

“I know!” I said, excitedly. “Roses are red, violets are yellow, when I look at you my legs turn to jello.”

If I had been Tara, I would have rolled my eyes by now. Instead, she gave me a prize that made me laugh. “Congratulations, Rachelle. You’ve won a date with yourself.”

Despite these blunders, I did, indeed have fun. I was able to somewhat coherently state my thoughts on the appeal – or lack thereof – of caller’s statements. And on one of the games where I had to make my ‘date’ guess the word I was thinking of without saying it in order to test his listening skills, I took him to the final round. And watching Tara juggle technology, sound effect prompts, signals from the producer, deliver face-saving comments for me, handle callers, and deliver witty comebacks, all the while being polished, unruffled, and entertaining was a sight to see.

So, many thanks to Victor, Tara, April, and Playboy Radio, for the awesome experience. And special thanks to Kevin and Tee, for giving me a crash tour of the Playboy television studio on the day before a holiday weekend.

I've got some exciting news to share … On May 25, 2007, I'll be Tara Mack's guest on Playboy Play Date, 2:00-3:00 p.m. PT, on Sirius Radio 198. Here's how the show works: Host Tara Mack presents dating scenarios, callers supply answers (and may win prizes), and I select winners based on the best answers. I'm flying to L.A. to do the game show live, in-studio — and, afterwards, I just might get a tour of the Playboy television studio. I hope you'll tune – or better yet, call in to the show at 1(877) 205.9796. It should be wild!
