Miss Abigail has a collection of over 1,000 classic advice books, spanning from 1822 to 1978 and covering a variety of topics, from love and romance to etiquette and charm. The collection sparked the idea for this site, then a book, Miss Abigail's Guide to Dating, Mating, and Marriage, which has inspired an Off-Broadway production of the same name!

Playboy Interview Jan 12 4pm EST

Thursday, January 11th, 2007

A reminder for anyone out there who has Sirius satellite radio and is subscribed to Playboy Radio (Channel 198) — Miss Abigail is appearing live on the “Afternoon Advice” show, hosted by Tiffany Granath, Friday, January 12, 2007, at 1pm PST/4pm EST.

I’ll be talking about the book, the site, sharing some advice from the classic sex books, and talking to callers. Should be entertaining! I’ve had some sinus issues and a sore throat the last week so my voice is nice and sultry for the interview.

Miss Abigail: Playboy Satellite Bunny?

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006

I was contacted yesterday by Playboy Radio (Sirius Satellite Channel 198) about appearing on their “Afternoon Advice” show, described as “an advice show like no other that could only come to you from the minds of Playboy. The show is hosted by Tiffany Granath and she’s joined by a rotating panel of experts, authors and celebrities who give their takes on sex and sexuality and takes your calls and may just take them in a direction you never even considered. This show can do everything from interpret your sex dreams, to read your star charts. Our guests can be anywhere from a doctor to a witch to a witchdoctor, all in an attempt to give you another view of your own sexuality.”

While I’m not a witchdoctor, at this point I suppose I fall into the expert/author category when it comes to classic advice topics, so I agreed to appear on the show.

Looks like I’ll be live on Friday, January 12, 2007, at 1pm PST/4pm EST, talking about the book, the site, sharing some of the ~ ahem ~ sexier bits of advice that have been left off this site (hey, this is a family Web site here!), and talking to callers. I’ve got plenty of books about sex that haven’t been quoted from yet… looking forward to doing the research for this one.

I’ll post a reminder and the call-in number closer to the date. Wish me luck!
