Book Talk Radio Club Newsletter March 2018
Happy Birthday Book Talk Radio Club
I can't believe it's been a year since I launched Book Talk Radio Club on the 01st March 2017 Thank you times a million to all the wonderful authors that took a chance on me and let me interview them about their books and then promote them on social media.
Why did I decide to launch a radio station and a literary marketing agency? As a self-published author myself, I know how hard it is to get your name out there. I was let down very badly by a national radio station that should have known know better and cancelled my on air interview to an audience of thousands at the very last minute because "someone important is coming into the studio". I thought to myself 'if they can treat one indie author like that, they'll do the same to others', so rather than stay angry and upset, I set up my own internet radio station for other 'indie' authors - kind of like talk radio but 'Book Talk Radio'!
I have over 25 years marketing and promotions experience and whilst I can't promise you sales (run like the wind if someone does!) I can promise you a huge amount of exposure of your books and your author brand; this remains true a year later.
Book Talk Radio Club welcomes new members...

My book is about my life. I have overcome sex, drugs, alcohol with the help of my wife and God. Life gave me lemons and those lemons have been made into lemonade.
So here we are, two books published and another on track. Where it will take me I have no idea but I am going to enjoy getting there and if my writing can bring some small pleasure into people’s lives along the way, then I consider that I will have succeeded in life.
"I live in Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories and have been living here for a year and a half. My family and I will probably remain living here for another nine to ten years.
I volunteer at the school and at the college. Our summer months are spent in Central Newfoundland.
I'm writing the second book in a series of three."
I am Robert J. Emery, a motion picture & TV writer/director turned novelist under the pen name R.J. Eastwood.
Mr. Emery’s interest in production and all things entertainment began when he served overseas with the Air Force branch of Armed Forces Radio and Television. Upon his discharge from the Air Force he became an announcer and news reporter at WCLE Television in Mansfield, Ohio. He then gravitated to television as the director of a daily one-hour morning talk show hosted by former Miss USA Diana Batts and TV personality Carl Day. The program was taped before a live audience. In 1965 he decided the time was right to write and direct The Bittersweet Night, the first of his eight feature motion pictures.
Mr. Emery had written 15 screenplays, eight of which were made into feature motion pictures. They are, The Bittersweet Night, Dare the Devil (which began the film career of actor Ray Wise), Willy & Scratch, Scream Bloody Murder, Sign of Aquarius, Ride in a Pink Car, The Florida Connection & Swimming Upstream, which he wrote and directed
for the Lifetime Television Movie Channel. The film won the Sapphire Halo Award for Best Dramatic Motion Picture at the Angel City Film Festival (L.A.).
In 2006 he retired as President of his production company, Media Entertainment, Inc. He remains a member in good standing in the Directors Guild of America (and still votes each year for Best Director). When not traveling abroad he and his wife Susanne make their home in Florida.
