Book Talk Radio Club Newsletter January 2017
Here's to a successful 2018
OK, well it's nearly the end of January but oh my goodness what a month it's been at Book Talk Radio Club. I've launched a new website for my beloved fellow indie authors offering social media graphics, author websites, social media postings and three fabulous VIP packages that takes every bit off marketing off their shoulders! More on that later in the newsletter but if you can't wait, you can have a look at BTRC Author Services. Prices start at a so very reasonable $15.00 for one social media graphic. I'm thrilled to say I've welcomed seven more authors to Book Talk Radio Club since December's newsletter and without further ado, let's meet them......

Growing up in Melbourne, Australia, Annette tells the struggle of surviving severe third degree burn injuries at the tender age of 9, as the result of one irresponsible adult’s actions at a Christmas BBQ.

Burnt Face is an emotionally moving story about the profound impact the horrific scars made to her childhood and follows her struggle into adolescence. It is a story of friendships, overcoming bullying and growing into a strong and rebellious teen in the notorious suburb of Broadmeadows, known for boisterous youth and gangs during the 70s and 80s. Follow Annette‘s torment of not being like other girls, to how one kiss on New Year’s Eve would change her world. This is the story of growing up with a Burnt Face.

Who is Claire Harris-Perkins?
Claire H Perkins lives in St Albans, UK with her beloved husband Melville and Henry, a much adored Cocker Spaniel. She has over 25 years of marketing and promotions experience and is an indie author of Self-Help and Inspirational books.
She enjoys walking along the many pretty nature trails, among the trees and by the lakes with Melville and Henry but has a longing to live somewhere that has a wonderful view of the sea which would be far more inspirational than her next door neighbour's ever full washing line!
Claire spent many years in the travel business in particular writing about her experiences of ranch holidays and adventures in the Southwest and Rocky Mountain states for the family business. Her favourite place and adventure of all time was whitewater rafting on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, she readily admits she could bore for hours on the subject.
Look out for February's Newsletter coming soon : )
