Have you ever finished a book and wished you could talk with the author about it? Me too!
I am curious by nature and always have a million questions about the writing process and inspiration. I usually have a few very specific questions about the story as well. I figured that there were many readers like me and I decided that I was going to try chatting with the authors to get the inside scoop for all of us.
I began this adventure by chatting with authors for about ten to fifteen minutes on an Instagram live. With a little pushing and encouragment I took the leap and turned those short author chats into a podcast. Thus was born Book Talk!
Join me as I dive into the pages of books, both old and new, and get all the details from the authors. Don't worry it's completely spoiler free!
Book Talk is currently available on:
