Authors Read is a new radio show that allows authors, storytellers, and poets to read from their published work. Radio show host, Lillian Brummet, is welcoming applications from authors, poets, and storytellers who would like to appear as guests. Maybe you should be on the show, too!
I remember hearing my grandparents talk about about the days when folks would sit around the radio in the family parlor and listen to story hour. Even in a day when electronics have inundated our lives, one radio host reaches into the past to bring a storytelling favorite back to the future. You will have to listen on your computer, but the Authors Read concept is the same—authors entertaining those who love to hear a good story.
The show is already booked through July with a variety of genres and authors included on the schedule.
July 11: Connie Arnold (poet and children's author)
July 12: Award-winning author Yvonne Perry was Lillian’s guest on Conscious Discussions last May, at which time she talked about her freelance writing business. She will be reading a humorous excerpt from her book Email Episodes: A Hilariously Honest Look at Life. See www.blogtalkradio.com/AuthorsRead for a preview.

As a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM), keynote speaker for writing conferences, and host of her own weekly podcast, Yvonne Perry has a great deal of speaking and promotional experience and enjoys connecting authors seeking book publicity assistance with people like Lillian who give authors an opportunity to share their work.
“I enjoy forming strategic alliances with online networkers who have a genuine interest in promoting good literature and fine authors,” says Perry. “Lillian graciously gives to the global community through her writing and her radio shows. I appreciate the opportunity she is giving me and other authors through Authors Read.”

“There is nothing like hearing the authors read from their work,” Lillian says. “Giving the readers the experience of their words—the way they meant them to be heard. So much of our communication depends on inflections, accents, and delivery. With Authors Read we offer readers a new experience while allowing them to have a taste of that author’s work– something they can’t get through browsing a bookstore or reading a book review!”
