#AuthorChat


 Click Here for some amazing Feedback from authors on the show!! 


Want to know our stats?  You can find those here

#AuthorChat allows authors and readers to come together in the comfort of their own homes to ask questions and meet new people! 

 Each video will have no more than one author (unless the book is a dual author title) and will run anywhere from 15-30 minutes. In the event of a large turn out shows can go up to 60 minutes.  

Viewers will be able to ask questions, win prizes, and interact with their favorite authors!  The author will be able to share information about their book, writing, reading, host a giveaway, and more! 

How Does It Work? 
  • The show is LIVE: The system I use is called Streamyard. It is kind of like Zoom but is streamed live to my YouTube channel. 
  • Choose a Date and Time: Days are Friday and Saturday. Times must be between 5pm to 7pm EST. If you need another time due to time zones we will make accommodations. 
  • Log In!:  About 10 minutes before the show you will be given a link to follow too long into the show. Please make sure to click the link 5 minutes before the show. 
  • Headphones: Although these may not be needed we always say better to have them.  This will cut down on feedback. 
  • Internet: Please make sure to log in via a computer that is plugged in by ethernet cable to your internet.  This will give the strongest connection possible.  However you can use a cell phone if need be. 
  • Have Fun!:  This is a laid back interview where we love to have fun!! 

What do you get?
  • Side Bar: Your cover will be posted to the side bar for the duration of the month. This will link to amazon for purchase. 
  • Review: Your review will be posted during the week that you are on the show. 
  • Social Media PR: We will promote the day that you come on the show throughout the week with your cover front and center! 
  • Video: All videos are recorded to Youtube. You can use this video however you choose via the share link and HTML code for the show. 

What is required?
  • Copy of the book: In the light of Covid we understand that print copies may not be available. At this time we will only require a copy of the book. (no open files) If a print copy can be provided we would be grateful due to migraines. 
  • Sharing: When we post about the show we ask that you like, share, and repost these to get the best turn out. 
  • Newsletter: If you have a newsletter we suggest to add the show into it to get the link into the hands of your fans! 
  • Reply to Comments:  Because the show is taped you may end up with questions after it is over.  We ask that you pop onto the link and check out comments for about a month. Replying to as many people as you can. 

Giveaways?
Although giveaways are a great way to hype up your fans they are not required.  If you would like to run a giveaway with your show just let us know.  This can be anything from kindles, iPads, to books, and more!! 

Day of the chat? 
  • Contact: We will send you the link to get on the show about 10 minutes before it starts.  
  • Follow Us:  Please make sure to follow us on YouTube and other social media. 
  • Internet and Charger: Please make sure to have your computer plugged in and have it corded via ethernet cable. (Or your phone)
