Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – Author Book Reading and Interview – Join the Guest List

It is hard to believe that we are now four months into the year and the book reading and interview at the cafe has been going very well. I am delighted that so many people are interested in answering their own questions instead of just leaving it to me.

You can find all the previous book readings here from some wonderful authors.

I am now booking a month ahead and getting ready to send out the next phase of interview questions. If you are in the Cafe and Bookstore then please just email me on Sally.cronin@moyhill.com and let me know that you are interested.

If you are not already on the shelves of the bookstore you will find details below on what I need to provide you with the promotion to get you there.

Author Book Reading and Interview.

If this was a real cafe and bookstore I would set up regular book readings and interviews with the authors on the shelves.. But they is no reason why we cannot do that here.. The only thing missing of course is the customers who would be listening to the reading and asking questions of the author.

But I have that covered.

Here is how it works…

The author will answer three of my general questions. They will also select a short extract from their book to share in the post. I will then ask three personalised questions.

I will then do the introduction, the book blurb, about the author and the book links.

Then I will ask those who read the interview to add their questions to the comments section of the post for the author to answer.

This way we do manage to get some interaction, a wide range of questions and a chance to meet the author is a slightly different way.  So far this theme has proved very popular

First and foremost — the authors must be willing and able to be around on the day or next day of the interview to answer the questions. Most authors pop in once or twice during the evening for the next couple of days to respond to questions and comments. B

For those of you who are not already in the bookstore.

If you are not on the shelves then that is easy to fix.. I will do an individual promotion for you first and the details are in this post.

  1. Wonderful concept, Sally! You might also consider a live BlogTalkRadio show that can be set up for free and then it can be archived for people who cannot listen live. This could complement a post here. It’s fun to be able to hear the author being interviewed. The BTR shows allow for phone-in participation by listeners. Just a thought.

  4. Oops fat finger syndrome means I’m not sure if I posted or not! Anyway great idea which makes your blog even more elegant than it was already. I’d love to take part in both the authors’ and the bloggers’ interactions. And thank you for all the many openings you’ve given me to date.

  6. Looks like you have another hit on your hands Sally. It’s a lovely opportunity.
    This year has been a constant health challenge. Nothing life threatening at all, but… I think I’m finally on the mend. So I’ll email you after I get some energy back. Maybe you’ll still have an opening. Mega hugs, my friend.
