UPDATED WITH NEW DETAILS: NBC's 'Today' show gets The Thrill

UPDATE, 3/1/08: The latest is that I'll be a guest on NBC's "Today" show this Monday, March 3, at 10:30 a.m. EST. However, if you want to be certain of catching my segment, I'd recommend watching from 10 a.m. EST on, as there's always the possibility with live TV that guests might be switched around.

I'm told the interviewer will be Hoda Kotb. Beyond that, as I wrote earlier in this space, I don't know how much I'm allowed to reveal, but rest assured the discussion will center upon issues that figure prominently in The Thrill of the Chaste.

Many, many thanks to those of you who have written to me or commented offering prayers. I really appreciate the prayer support.

[From my original post on 2/27/08:]

The opportunity came completely out of the blue. A "Today" producer heard about me from another author's publicist, who recommended me when the producer mentioned one of the topics for which they were seeking an expert.

Needless to say, my family is excited. I called both of my parents today and it was such a joy to share the news. For my part, I am in a glorious state of shock. This is not what an author expects when her book has been out for a year—even when it is in its sixth printing with translations in Spanish and (coming soon) Polish and Chinese.

Thanks so much to those of you who have supported me and prayed for me, especially those who buoyed me with prayers during my recent thyroid operation. Please keep the prayers coming—I need them for Monday morning!
