Meet the Girl Reading in the South

Marlive Harris will be joining us on Writers in the Sky Podcast this Friday July 10th, 2009!

Marlive Harris is fondly known in literary circles as, an acronym for "the girl reading in the" She is an online book marketer/promoter who has a fascination with technology (the Internet in particular) and a love of literature—especially African American Literature.Before becoming a full time online book marketer, Marlive was a classroom teacher and school librarian for eight years in North Texas. While working as a librarian, she launched The G.R.I.T.S. Online Reading Club, a leading online reading and book promotion community for adult readers and writers.

Her next endeavor came next in 2001 when she launched the award-winning G.R.I.T.S. Kidz Book Club, an online book club for kids, parents, and adult care-givers of children who desire to discuss and learn more about African American and other multicultural literature written for young people.

The success of those two online reading communities and her desire to meet the unique web publicity needs of authors and self-publishers is the reason she launched The GRITS COM Literary Service full-time in 2003. So, for the last eight years with its reading groups, online book campaigns, virtual book tours, and podcast network has become a place where books, readers, literary professionals, connect on the Internet!

You will find Marlive giving book promotion presentations (online and offline), participating and moderating readers' and writers' discussion panels, or you may see one of the reading organizations she moderates or facilitates featured in news and print publications!
