Welcome to Autumn/Fall!
September's been a busy month at Book Talk Radio Club. I announced the finalists (in genres) LIVE for Book Talk Radio Club's 2018 Awards. Congratulations to the finalists!

More and more authors are signing up for the 12 Week Social Media Package and also the ever popular Facebook Header Video & Book Trailer Package. So, what are these two packages?
12 Week Social Media Marketing Package...It's not how often you post and where, so much as what you post. Social Media post wording needs to catch the eye of the reader in about five seconds - that's all you have. Think how much information is thrown at you on your newsfeed everyday and how much of it you automatically dismiss as you scroll through.
You need to make each post count!
Twelve weeks social media content (includes two posts per week and three customized graphics to complement the posts) $270.00 To purchase go here
Facebook Header Video & Book Trailer...
Book trailers are a brilliant way to bring books to life and often encourage readers to purchase a book they might not usually choose.
Your book trailer will be customized with a soundtrack that compliments your book and it's genre. Featuring your book's front cover, excerpts from your book, reviews and your author website and/or sales channel (i.e. Amazon/Barnes & Noble etc) You can be certain that your book trailer will be totally customized for you - no templates used here!
A Header Video for your author Facebook page takes the place of the header image and will help to create more engaging interaction and drive more rich experience for your audience by spotlighting your book/s in one of the most prominent space: your Page cover. $150.00 To purchase go here
New Book Talk Radio Club Authors
Christopher Felton is a prolific public speaker, dynamic writer, and competent educator who has expansively taught about world religions, Eastern philosophies, and Humanism. Christopher is hyper-creative and is best known for his extraordinary writing abilities, as he is able to transfer thoughts and reality onto paper.
The author of three debut books, "Cipher's Den", "Re-Member Yourself", and "The Fervent Exchange" had been featured in 'Her Times' magazine, which quickly revealed that his books and articles are embraced by readers of varied backgrounds. His articles have been broadcast by a prison administrator as 'inspirational,' his second book was reviewed by a clinical therapist as 'working great for her patients,' and a celebrity figure sent him a letter of commendation and admiration for his 'exceptional writing and thinking skills.'
Christopher is a former Maryland State Trooper who was an expert sharpshooter. He was certified in pressure points tactics, control tactics, and defensive tactics.
The renowned writer and public speaker is best known for utilizing his extraordinary and hyper-creative technique to captivate his readers, and summoning complete attention from the audience during his public speeches. He is a writer who bleeds his passion and breathes his truth. He is a multi-talented personality who believes in projecting optimum effort in everything he does.
However, with all of Christopher's achievements, what he treasures most are the sentiments and tributes he has received from family, friends and colleagues - with the most notable being an essay written about him by his youngest son.
Christopher's Book Talk Radio Club interview is scheduled for 24 November 10.00am (EST)
If you'd like to join Book Talk Radio Club and have your live on air interview marketed to over 100,000 readers on social media and syndicated to iTunes, Sotify, Amazon Alexa and iHeart Radio go here
