Did read somewhere that a condition of an Oprah blessing is a certain number of copies in print? I can see the sense of that but it also smacks un peu of blackmail and I can sympathise with a publisher who prefers to avoid the expense and risk of a reprint.
I confess that most of the interviews I set up were great fun but usually gutted the best bits of the book and I never heard of one selling out as a result of Panorama or Michael Parkinson or Melvyn Bragg or whoever.
Mustn't rabbit on too long, but excellent blog you have here. CH
