Too School For Cool

Charles Fudgemuffin's first radio interview


DJ Steve Watson, presenter of Too School For Cool
The last few weeks have been really exciting for me as an author with my debut comedy novel 'How To Save The World: An Alien Comedy' making the Top 100 for a few categories in the Amazon UK Kindle charts and achieving highest positions of:

Sci-Fi / Space Opera - 11
Humour - 50
Science Fiction - 66

At one stage I was even a couple of places above another book I can recommend which not many people might have heard of but it's a book called Bridget Jones' Diary (Anniversary Edition) by an up and coming author called Helen Fielding.

And in the Sci Fi charts I was only a couple of places below a special hardback reissued edition of The Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy, so it was a total buzz to be ranked alongside such famous books.  Admittedly they probably sold slightly more books when they were first released, so
I'm not quite a rival for J.K. Rowling just yet, but it's nevertheless been a very pleasing and surprising few weeks for someone with my own modest expectations.

Moving onto other exciting developments, my first radio interview went out on Too School For Cool on Radio Stroud a couple of weeks ago.  Too School For Cool is an 80s radio show presented by DJ Steve Watson, and as Steve would say, 'Grab a Soda Stream, Choose Life, Relax and join me in the House of Fun for the very best of the 80's.'

In keeping with the 80s theme, in the first part of the interview we chatted about a few memories from the 80s such as jukeboxes and SodaStreams, before moving onto my book 'How To Save The World: An Alien Comedy' in the second part of our chat.

The only other interview I've done prior to this was a written interview for Author Quiz*, so as you can imagine I was fairly nervous about doing my first 'talking' interview, but thankfully DJ Steve Watson did an accomplished job of editing out most of my waffle and making me sound okay.

* Another blog I run which features personalised author interviews.

The interview went out over the Easter weekend, but you can still catch the Easter Special of Too School For Cool on Radio Stroud's Listen Again service available on their website:

And if you're a fan of the 80s then you can catch Too School For Cool every Friday from 9am to 11am on Radio Stroud via their online service:

As I've already mentioned, the last few weeks have been really exciting for me as an author so thanks again to DJ Steve Watson for having me on Too Cool For School to talk about exciting times from both the past and the present.
