9-1-1 Send an Author

What are "emergency 911 interviews" with authors?  I found this phrase twice in PR material about a book.  If I make a 911 call, it will definitely NOT be to interview an author. How about you?  What would constitute an "emergency interview" anyway? 

"Oh, quick, I'm dying from lack of a quote from the author to go with this free book publicity. Call 9-1-1, stat!"

Well, they do call them "book doctors" so maybe this isn't so far off base as first glance suggests. 

The publicity agent also asks that I "please everify the best street address so we can send you a package."  Is that a new verb? Makes sense:  "to everify" is to verify via electronic media. Right? I think what he really wants is for me to email him my street address.

9-1-1, help! I've been hit by runaway creative nonfiction.

Perhaps the emergency interviews are with writers in commas?
