Author Chats with Bill Walker and Debbie Williamson now open

Hi everyone,

I am so excited to launch this weeks author chats. We have two really good yet contrasting books and authors chatting with us this week.

Bill Walker author of  A Note from an Old Acquaintance will be chatting with readers about his book. I really enjoyed this story and you can find out why by reading my review here.

Debbie Williamson the author of Stand, a heart wrenching story about ending the cycle of abuse will also be available to chat with us about her book and her experiences. My review of this will be posted today however in the interim, you can read the synopsis of the book in the author's discussion thread. What i can tell you now is that the book is raw and at times sad but there is a powerful message that is worth telling.

Both author chats are currently opened and will close on July 15th. This gives you a lot of time to prepare you questions, comments or suggestions for the authors. Since this is a discussion forum, you can always check back during the course of the week for your responses.

Here's the link to the author chat forum where you will find both discussion threads. http://grou.ps/bookventuresbookclub/119737#/news/

There is no need to join the book club in order to participate in the author chat. Simply log in with your gmail, yahoo, facebook or twitter accounts and starting chatting. Its that simple. Please feel free to email me at bookventuresbookclub@gmail.com if you run into any trouble.

I would also like to take the opportunity to stress the importance of proper netiquette when chatting in these forums. Here's a link to some great netiquette guidelines that you can get acquainted with.

More importantly, i hope you have fun. These are truly good books and even though many of you have not read them yet, i hope you get the chance to find out more about the books from the authors.
