Authors Showcase - Meet New Authors on TV

With all of the changes in publishing today it is increasingly more difficult for new authors to introduce themselves to potential readers. Amazon is a fine place to go and buy a book you know you want, but what replaces the experience of browsing a bookstore?

Authors Showcase is a TV show with the objective of introducing readers to 10 to 20 new books and authors in a 30 minute program. There is a new episode every month. Recently they have covered The Chicago Tribune Printers Row Litfest, the RT (Romantic Times) Book Lovers Convention, the AWP (Association of Writers Programs) Conference and a number of smaller events.

 The format is fast paced with several short segments featuring authors discussing their books interspersed with 5 or 6 book trailers per episode. The show is viewable on Chicago cable channel 25 every Thursday at 8PM or can be watched online 24/7 at AuthorsBroadCast.com.
