Serving up a variety of authors and books lightly grilled and seasoned with humor.
The Book Roast is a free promotional tool for authors. If you enjoy hanging out at the grill, spread the word!
Mondays: Mystery Publisher! Ms. Sally Spitfire will share juicy tidbits about the publishing industry. Also on board, her assistant-Antonio, and her country cousin-Miss Susanna.
Tuesdays through Sundays: Authors from all Genres!
Drop by and chat with authors, real time. Each day an author is on board, read an excerpt and answer a silly question for a chance to win a free book. Or, ask your own questions. Share your thoughts. See "Contest Ingredients" for details.
We slice and serve one author a day for fun and prizes and a good, old fashioned roasting. First, we whet your appetite with a short excerpt from the author's book, followed by a question loosely related to the passage. Some questions are silly, others are straightforward and the rest are plain crunchy. For dessert, the author picks the winner who answers the question correctly – or the most creatively. We like spice, but some authors prefer things sweet, which makes Book Roast deliciously unpredictable.
The prize: a free copy of the author's book (and an occasional surprise!)
Best of all, authors will pop into the blog throughout the day to answer questions, share a laugh and toss out some insider tidbits.
Enjoys eating ice-cream, wearing elastic-waistband thongs, and pushing bunnies into canyons. Writes humorous middle-grade novels. Her current WIP is about three hundred cookie bags in. If you're a writer, you understand.
Rob Kroese aka Diesel is a severed head floating in a vat. But fortunately he's pretty good with Photoshop.
Is the mountain wanderer who works in the bustle of Philadelphia. In his writing and photography, he mixes one part moonlight, one part mid-life crisis, one part green countryside, and one part getting run down in the street. When not practicing law or working on his current project, So This Fish Walks Into a Cemetery, he serves as the Twilightkeeper at The Clarity of Night.
Type A writer, reader, volunteerer, liver; trying to be a human being rather than a human doing while doing too much. A study in contradictions and living life as a paradox - writes light, humorous middle grade and deep, edgy YA.
Likes black tea, Apple Macs and koalas in kilts. Shona's short stories have been published in Australia and the UK. She is working on a novel and sharpening her Author Toasting Fork, all the better to enjoy a good Book Roast.
Someone has to clean up around here, jump in when patrons become unruly, and otherwise help the chefs by adding special ingredients.
