Book Talk Radio Club Newsletter October 2019
Looks like it's going to be a busy time for me with Book Talk Radio Club and BTRC Author Services : )
In the lead up to the holiday season, I'm offering two Eight Week Holiday Countdown Book Marketing Packages on social media. It's time to make readers aware of your hard work! Just scroll down this newsletter and you'll find out what's included.
I also have some great holiday Gift Certificates for the author in your life (or as an author if you feel like treating yourself - and why not? LOL)
I'll be announcing the winner of Book Talk Radio Club's BOOK OF THE YEAR in my 2019 Awards on Sunday 10 November, so keep an eye out both on Book Talk Radio Club's website and of course social media.
Here's to a great November!
Welcome to Book Talk Radio Club
Jan is founder of the International Humor and Healing Institute established in 1986. She worked with board members Norman Cousins and Steve Allen as well as prominent physicians in promoting hope and humor in healing. As a long term cancer survivor, "Jan's Army" acknowledges and sends "Badges of Courage" to other heroes. Jan writes a weekly newspaper humor column - “Lightening With Jan” for the GLOBE and a contributor for several online magazines and newspapers. The Anthology "Open Doors: Fractured Fairy Tales" features Jan's historical, hysterical chapter called, "Where Are They Now?"
Jan's latest book is Dancin, Schmancin With The Scars: Finding the Humor No Matter What! The next one is Stretch Marks: Ageless Wisdom for Sexy Old Broads and is in the editing stage.
"Jan’s bliss is encouraging us to find joy and laughter no matter their circumstances. She believes that in the fabric of life there are threads of pain and sorrow which have to be healed. Yet in between, in actuality, that not a shred of evidence exists that life is serious!" “Jan’s writing is so full of humor and a zest for living. Her books literally sing.” —PHYLLIS DILLER
I have always known things about people from being a little girl, and used to talk to ‘Imaginary Friends’, which I now know to be ‘Spirit’. I had a very traumatic and challenging childhood and I was in and out of the care system, until being permanently fostered at the age of twelve.
Even though paranormal things happened to me all my life, I was not a believer in the afterlife until 2005 when I contracted Meningitis and Encephalitis and nearly died. I had a Near Death Experience and saw an Angelic Being, which told me I had much work to do! I thought I had imagined the whole thing, until I started hearing voices when I came home from hospital and thought I had gone mad! This journey has not been an easy one as I have resisted my connection repeatedly because of all the negativity and criticism that surrounds it. All I will say is that everyone on the earth can do what I do in some form, as we are all connected to the energy source that we came from and whether you are a believer or not, you will return to that same energy source when your physical body ‘dies’.
I have helped thousands of people from all walks of life with my connection to ‘source’. I have seen celebrities, been on radio, appeared in magazines such as ‘Spirit & Destiny’ & ‘Chat ‘its Fate’ and published my book in 2018 which went to #1 on Amazon. I have clients all over the world and feel very humbled by all the amazing testimonials and feedback I have received over the years.
Mark and Jules are multi-award winning motivational speakers, authors and creators of the Future Toolbox - Life Skills That You Don't Get From Sitting Exams.

They both love travelling and spend time backpacking around Asia and lots of Europe plus they're avid fans of football and music. Mark and Jules have worked with teens and adults for over 23 years. Their mission is to help others create positive mindsets and habits and understand that life is for living.
Ivana Poku "I am a mum of twins, a founder of Mumsjourney which I set up after I overcame postnatal depression, a blogger, motivational speaker and a finalist of Best Women in Business Awards in the category Best blogger who supports and helps make a difference in other people's lives."
"I help mums to get through the hard times maternity often brings, especially from the emotional point of view. I truly believe that if we help future and new parents to be better informed on what to expect from parenthood, it can rapidly reduce the risks of postnatal depression. I hope that my work and support will help other parents out there to never have to feel the way I did after becoming a mum myself."

Here's what Cheryl Meyer author of It Feels Good To Feel Good says about Book Talk Radio Club...
"I am very sincere when I tell you that you have done an extraordinary job marketing my book and me. I have learned so much just from watching you. I will continue to recommend you when ever possible. You were worth every penny. Thanks for everything."
BTRC Author Services offers all authors the following services: Social Media Marketing Packages (12, 24 & 48 Weeks)
It's not how often you post and where, so much as what you post. Social Media graphics (the image that accompanies the wording) needs to catch the eye of the reader in about 3-5 seconds and then the wording of the post has to keep the interest and encourage the reader to click on the link to your sales channel (i.e. Amazon etc). 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!

Facebook Header Videos
Attract your readers to your Facebook Author page with a header video! It will ensure your page is 'sticky' meaning it will keep your page visitors for longer reading your posts and engaging with them. Your header video will be a great advertisement for your book or genre of book. The video will be custom built and include images of your book/s, personalized backgrounds and a background soundtrack that evokes the feel of your book and/or it's genre.
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.
Attract your readers with a book trailer video!
Your video will be a great advertisement for your book or genre of book. The video will be custom built and include images of your book/s, personalized backgrounds and a background soundtrack that evokes the feel of your book and/or it's genre. 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!
Social Media Graphics
Social media graphics are the images that will stop people scrolling past your posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc!
The graphic you use must catch the eye of the reader within three to five seconds, that's all you have.
