Wanna promote your book on my Talk Radio Show?

I'm hosting a TALK RADIO SHOW every week-day at 10:00am Pacific.

On this show, called Kindle Books Roundup - I want to hear from readers and writers about Kindle books people are enjoying at the moment.

If you are a writer, and would like to call in to promote your book, I'll give you a few minutes of 'air time.'

Promotion guidelines:
Your name (pen name is fine)
Book Title
Genre
Length (pages)
Fast summary

After the show, listeners will get a link to your book.

Limited space for each show - so if you're interested, please provide a link below to the book you want to promote and login to any show this week and provide your email in the chat window so we can discuss further.

Ideally, any authors promoting should be willing to provide a gift copy (or 2) of their book to the listeners.


I like to do 10:00am PST M-F for the Open Round Up.

Feel free to call in today for our inaugural show. All genres accepted during the Open Round Up (except Erotica - we'll do a special show for that)

Sorry, didn't see the posting until too late. Although I don't know if I'd have had the courage to call in anyway - I'm one of those "Surely I don't sound like that" people.

I think "Crazy About You" would be a good book for this venue. I grew up on the grounds of a mental hospital because my dad was the dentist there and the state provided us housing. Crazy is set on the grounds of Larned (KS) State Hospital. It's a coming-of-age, suspense novel. The other aspect is that I donate $1 of every sale to the folks in these part who work the suicide prevention hotline.

deckert - you'd be surprised how people love your voice - even if you think it's funky strange. don't be afraid - listen to my show - i'm easy and fun to be with - plus you'll only get your 5-10 minutes of fame anyhow - and chances are I'll do all the talking.... post your book.

LOL.... I'd think 5 minutes would be just right... NO? Just kidding. Erotica show not set yet - I don't know enough writers in that genre yet. Be patient my friend.

I wanna! I think my book has potential. It needs an audience.

Be there on Wednesday.

anyone up for a unscheduled show today? -

simple format....

Kindle Book Roundup (talk show)

call in, (i'll have number later when show is booked)

pitch your book for 5 minutes.... including read a portion (1 short paragraph)

if a listener has a question, you get more time, then... next author.

No give away required (but welcome if you want to be permanently listed in the show link)

Any genre welcome (except Erotica)

I'm also planning to have a pre-recorded interview from a Kindle marketing expert (although I may not get that done before Monday)

In any case, I'd love to start helping fellow authors promote their books.

Put your link below if you want to participate, and let's shoot for 11:00am Pacific Time today
