Book Talk Radio Club Newsletter - May 2017
Hi Book Lover!
I can't believe it's been three months since I launched Book Talk Radio Club - the response and positive feedback has been overwhelming, I have made some new and wonderful author friends and am having the time of my life! I started Book Talk Radio Club because as a self-published author of self-help and inspirational books, I know how hard it is to get one's name out there. I was let down very badly by a national radio station that should know better and cancelled my on air interview to an audience of thousands at the last minute. (In fact I was on the train at the time travelling to the interview) Rather than stay angry and upset, I decided to see if I can set up my own internet radio station for authors - kind of like talk radio but 'Book Talk Radio’ and give other self-published authors a voice!
