#AuthorChats





  • Click Here to check out all of the reviews and post for AuthorChat 



  • Author Chats allow authors and readers to come together in the comfort of their own homes! Each video will have no more than 1 author (unless the book is a dual author etc) and will run for 15 to 30 mintues. Where viewers will be able to ask questions! The author(s) will also be able to share information about their book, writing, reading, and more! 

    How it works?
    • Choose a Date and Time! Dates can be Monday-Saturday Please keep all times via EST.  Keep in mind time zones.  Show times can be anywhere from 1pm EST to 6pm EST (if you need another time please let us know.) 
    • Log in! I will give you a link to join the cast please make sure to log in about 5 minutes early so we can make sure everything is working. 
    • Headphones! Headphones are great to have! This cuts down on feedback. (This may not be necessary but it is always good to have them on hand.) 
    • Wifi vs. Ethernet? If you can plug your computer into a wired connection that works best. If you have to use Wifi please make sure it had a large bandwith and is not a public connection. 
    • Interview: Videos run anywhere from 15-30 mintues which we can always go past if you have a good turn out. 


    What is required? 
    • Sending a Print Copy. We require you to send at least 1 print copy which will be used in a giveaway, review to be posted on Crossroad Reviews, as well as videos and promos leading up to your show date. (This copy will be used for pictures on social media, review, giveaway, as well as showing it on air) We no longer permit authors to ship out winning books (past the 1 title required is fine). We have had to many issues in the past where items are not sent in a timely manner.  We understand that authors get busy. 
    • Digital Books Only: If your title is only sold in digital formats you must send either the cost of the title via paypal to us so we may purchase the title or gift the title via the US store on Amazon.  The giveaway copy will be up to you to send to the winner via a store of you and the winners choice. 
    • Post On Social Media. We ask that you post on social media leading up to your date and time on social media.  Sharing the link for your show! *Make sure to tag us so we can also share.*  The more we share the better turn out you will have. 
    • Reply to comments. Please reply to as many comments as you can after the show ends. Some people might be watching it after it ended and will still be asking questions. We ask that you take the time to check the video at least during your month as to keep the momentum going. 
    • Host a Giveaway. If you would like to add anything else to the giveaway please let us know. 

    Giveaways
    During and after the video you have the option to offer and a giveaway past the one book that is required.   You can pretty much giveaway anything you want. From another book in print, audio, or even an ebook.  (Note to ebooks: We do ask that you get these copies from a store vs. giving out files)  Swag is an awesome thing to send if you want to do a smaller giveaway.  Swag consists of bookmarks, buttons, stickers, signed bookplates, etc. 

    If you would like to host a larger giveaway the Kindle Fire is always a good choice. It is inexpensive but packs a punch for the winner.  You could even include an ecopy of your book with it or a gift card. 

     Are you to busy to host it?  Don't worry we can do all the leg work for you!  You just send us the money via Paypal and we will buy the Kindle and have it sent directly to the winner. And gift them the book. So you don't have to worry about anything! 

    Want to go even bigger? Why not try Paypal Cash! Pretty much the sky is the limit when it comes to giveaways! You can go as big or as small as you want!  And we can do all the work for you!
