Writers Revealed is a live weekly podcast hosted by Felicia Sullivan that promotes new books and authors. I’ve listened to several of the podcasts, which are aired live on Sundays or can be downloaded from the Writers Revealed website. All of the discussions have been interesting and entertaining.
This upcoming Sunday, WR will be speaking with Brock Clarke, author of An Arsonist’s Guide to Writer’s Homes in New England, which I am dying to read.
Writers Revealed also launched a Virtual Book Club. Each month the WR VBC hosts a live chat with the author of a newly released book. By registering for a selection – and they are offered individually, so you only sign up to read and discuss the books you want to – the Writers Revealed Virtual Book Club sends you a free copy of the book.
Today, I received my copy of Amy Bloom’s Away in the mail. The NYTBR wrote up a great review on this book, so I am very excited about reading it. The VBC chat is scheduled for October 28th so I have plenty of time to finish what I’m reading now and jump right in. I'll get instructions on how to call in to the discussion as we get closer to the date.
The VBC site still shows spots open for the Amy Bloom book discussion – I’m not sure if it’s current or not, but if you’d be interested in participating in this or any of the future discussions, check it out!
