Interview Transcripts

Alas, the cyber gremlins were active Thursday night.  Not only did my monitor fade to near death, but for some reason, only the very last few minutes of the interview were recorded on the transcript. (And you canít blame it on my monitor Ė thatís when it was almost dead!)  So this excellent interview is one where you should have been there.  Iím sorry for those of you who had to miss it. I did talk with Diane once before about E Publishing, and you can read that transcript here:  .
