This coming Sunday, March 24, the CBS Sunday Morning news show will be doing a segment on Ellora’s Cave Publishing and I, joysann was there to witness it.  Last week CBS Correspondent Bill Geist and his crew flew into Akron, Ohio, to tour the EC offices and warehouse, and interview CEO Patty Marks about the unusual and successful business of publishing erotica and their trademarked Romantica®.

Along with Patty, they also did an interview with one of EC’s most popular authors, Desiree Holt, who has written and published over 130 books. Another interesting fact about Desiree? Along with producing exciting, sizzling romance fiction, she is a 76 year old widowed grandmother. For some reason some people find that incongruous. I just find her brilliant.

So this is the story CBS Sunday Morning will be broadcasting. For my part, well, I was invited by EC to be one of three reader/fans to be interviewed for the segment, and I am enthusiastically both of those things. I was delighted!

I dragged my friend Joan Short, another reader/fan, into the EC offices, and while waiting for our turns to be interviewed, we were invited to watch a bookcover photo shoot, put together to film how it’s done. That was interesting, too. With the need for romantic looking covers for the books, the subjects are gorgeous. There were two lovely young women, and, of course, some of the famous Ellora’s Cavemen. Yep, it was fascinating.

I’m looking forward to seeing the story on Sunday Morning, seeing the interview with my friend Desiree, and of course, seeing how the news crew saw the photo shoot.

Bottom Line: For myself, I can only barely remember what gracious Bill Geist asked me, and goodness knows how I answered, but there it is.

    Woot Woot, Joyce Ann, and holy moly what a great photo that last one is. I bet it gets framed this week. :)

    I can’t wait to see the show on Sunday. Fans of 50 Shades who don’t know about Ellora’s Cave will be thrilled to tap into that mother load of erotica. Tell Joan I said hello and so looking forward to watching.

    Very kewl Joysann! I’ve set my PVR and can’t wait to see this interview. And looking forward to seeing Desiree Holt as well–here’s hoping I will be that brillant and sexy when I’m 76!

    Btw who is the cutie on your right (picture left)?
