Welcome to Book Talk Radio Club
Jenny Ford Jenny Ford didn’t set out to be a writer. In fact, no one was more surprised than Jenny when she finished writing her first book!Beauty was her first love. But when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2010, she had to close her highly successful Beauty Therapy business. And where many people may have struggled to emerge so positively from such a life change, Jenny soon discovered (thanks to a little Divine Intervention) that her true life purpose was writing.She has gone on to write in multiple genres – plays, children’s books, contemporary women’s fiction and non-fiction books (guided prayers and inspirational messages) – and has also created her own merchandise (inspirational message cards).Jenny has received two business awards in two consecutive years from The Businesses Community St Albans and was nominated for a prestigious global award for her fiction book ‘Prisoner Within’Jenny says ‘I feel so blessed, grateful, and thankful for the life I have. Without the knocks and hard times I wouldn’t be where I am today!’

BTRC AUTHOR SERVICES
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!
Twelve weeks social media content (includes two posts per week and three customized graphics to complement the posts

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.
BTRC Author Services' social media graphics are customised to your book's genre and show:
* Your book/s in 3D
* Your sales channel i.e. 'Available at Amazon'
* Your website URL
Graphics can be tailored to the following themes:
