Blog Talk Radio
When I started my blog last summer, I had no idea there was such a wonderful book blogging community out there. My favorite things about this community are the awesome bloggers and the interaction with authors. A great way to have contact with authors is through Blog Talk Radio. If you’re not familiar with this site, you need to check it out. The interviews are informal and you can call in to talk to the authors! (You can also participate in the conversation going on in the chat room, but that’s not near as much fun.) The interviews are recorded and can be listened to at a later date. They feel intimate and are so much fun to be a part of! Here are some upcoming shows:
- April 15 – Jean Hanff Korelitz, the author of Admission at 2:00 PM Eastern Time
- April 16 – George Pelecanos at 1:00 PM Eastern Time
- April 19 – Ted Dekker at 8:00 PM Eastern Time
Miriam Parker of Hachette Books is offering a George Pelecanos library (12 books + a galley of The Way Home) to anyone who calls in with a question during the April 16th show. This is a great opportunity for all the George Pelecanos fans out there.
