*CHANGES* conversations between authors: LIVE Video Talk Shows on YouTube by Sally Ember, Ed.D.

Sally Ember, Ed.D., and guests have had over 50 LIVE conversations as one-hour Episodes of CHANGES conversations between authors, during which we discuss fascinating topics. As of fall, 2016, on indefinite hiatus.

SCROLL DOWN for Archived Shows.

Watch for notices that the hiatus status has ended, or email me and ask for me to re-open it just for you!

If you’d like to be on the show,
—Propose a time/date to me after reading the info, below, and
—Watching at least one archived show.

Any authors of any genre and any type of publication/publishing format could be welcomed, but my show is PG-rated, respectful of all and non-confrontational.

Seeking Guests, whenever the mood and guest inspire me.

For the show date, allow for about 2 hours, between about 8 AM – 4 PM, on a Monday, Friday or Saturday, Central time, USA (45 minutes before and about 10 minutes after the one-hour live show).

—Contact Sally! Send an email indicating why you want to be on the CHANGES show AFTER watching at least one Episode, first: sallyember AT yahoo.com

When you’re ready to request a slot for yourself as a guest,
—send your two preferred dates/times.
—send another two dates/times for about one week prior to your earliest preferred show date, for a 30-minute tech run.

Please keep reading on this CHANGES page and find out about how to get on the show.

Openings for ‪#‎author‬ guests! Keep reading for more information.

TECH INFO: If you are new to being on Youtube’s LIVE shows (there may be a program you have to download for my show using a WIRED internet connection via a laptop or desktop unit; not a phone or tablet; not wireless) and/or if you are technically less than “savvy,” PLEASE read their info carefully and make sure your system meets the minimum requirements. I can’t fix what you don’t have.

You must have…
—a Google ID (Gmail account, Youtube channel and/or Google+ ID)
—already have or download GOOGLE CHROME as your browser for our tech practice and live interview, at least
—a working webcam and a microphone
—a headset or earbuds
—a working, WIRED connection (a cord that runs from your laptop or desktop to a working internet router)
—a private/quiet place from which to be on camera without ringing phones, children or noisy pets in the room
—a quiet time for our live show to record well (not when your garbage is being picked up by trucks, e.g.)
—a laptop or desktop to use for our live interview and tech check times that are the same equipment in the same location for both time slots.

On CHANGES conversations between authors, which is NOT an “author interview,” we talk about writing, mostly genre fiction, such as sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, romance, then we go into book marketing, science, gender, blogging, psi talents, Buddhism, meditation, authors’ groups, politics, or social media: whatever we want. I often feature creators of nonfiction, poetry, plays/scripts and other forms of writing as well.

YOUR comments and questions can lead us. I welcome your suggestions for guests.

All PG-13, all fun. Episode 39’s guest, M.P. McVey, blogged this after our 8/26/15 conversation:

I was really nervous taking part in *CHANGES* with Sally Ember this morning. I had never done anything close to a live show, whether it be a television, internet, or radio program. There’s always that fear that you’ll say or do something unforgiveable and that it would be caught in the moment and preserved for all time.

I’m sure that there are plenty of embarrassing moments in today’s episode, but Sally(being the perfect example of a professional) did an amazing job at keeping the show going, and making sure I didn’t totally freeze-up … except for one, embarrassing moment, which already has me laughing at myself. And thank you, Sally, for being such a sweet and intelligent person, I truly had an amazingly great time.

In today’s episode, we talked about writing(of course), but we also spoke about the science behind our stories and researching the actual, hard science. We also spoke about social change, and specifically gender roles in stories. I love conversations like these because I always walk away with some new nugget of thought, specifically the perspective of someone else.

Episode 14 (and 47)’s guest, John W. Howell, penned a “Johnku” after our conversation on 12/3/14 for Episode 14:

Quietly comes in,
Unsuspecting victim sits. . .
Ember’s brain kills ’em.

John and I talked it over and decided that my “killing” is done with the sword of my intellect, using more incisive wit than deadly force….Watch some Episodes, then, YOU decide! http://goo.gl/eX0D8T
