Enhance Book Groups With Online Author Interviews

Book group members often want to know more about the book's author and the inspiration behind the creation of the book. Why not incorporate an online author interview into your book discussion? There are currently about a dozen Simon & Schuster online videos available to watch at the Website, bookvideos.tv.

According to the blog, Mashable, publishing company Simon & Schuster will soon create a YouTube channel highlighting authors and books. Hopefully this is a trend we will see more of in the near future by other publishing companies!

Note: Other author interviews on video are scattered around the Web and can be found occasionally on publishers Websites, but they can be difficult to find. Having a YouTube channel(s) dedicated to author interviews would be a vast improvement for finding video!
