I am a member and help run the Fox Brook Book Club. It is local to me and hosted in someone's home. We hold quarterly meetings, sometimes more frequent, to socialize and discuss a book. We have thirty-one members and anywhere from six to twenty-five people usually attend a meeting. Often this depends on people's schedules. What I proposed is that, if possible, I'd like to interview the authors of the books we read. Questions may range to about the book to your other works you have to, well, a little about you.
We, the book club, are NOT asking for a discount on your book, only that if chosen that we can interview you. At this time, because this is new to us, I would like interviews to be done via email. I am considering Skype or radio as a possibility but am not rolling that out yet.
I am hoping to gather most questions and email them to you, the author, at least a week prior to our meeting so the answers will be returned and available to share at the book club meeting, although we may have a few afterward too. After the interview and meeting, I will post the questions and answers on this blog, which, in turn, rolls over to my Facebook and Twitter pages.
A list of books and authors willing to be interviewed, for which a hostess from the book club can read and choose, will be compiled. Books may be chosen based on genre and interests, although it is possible that not every book will be chosen. The list will be on-going.
As well as the interview, the extra book sales, and the added publicity, I will give your book an honest review, which will be post here on my blog, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords. Some of the other club members may post reviews too.
If interested please message me through Facebook or Goodreads. Supply the name of your book/books, genre, a short one sentence description per book, your email, whether it is e-book, paperback or both, and links to buy your book. Thanks!
I'm hoping this proposal is a win-win for both you, the author, and the book club members. I certainly am excited to read your new and adventurous books! ~Lisa
