Booktalk Nation is a service that organizes nationwide phone-in author talks hosted by independent bookstores. You can sign up for any event on the Booktalk Nation website and listen to your favorite authors discuss their latest book, buy signed personalized copies, and best of all you will be supporting your local independent bookstore with every purchase—all from the comfort of your own living room. Proceeds from these sales are divided between the host store and any affiliate brick-and-mortar bookstores that brought the reader to the site.
This service is intended to supplement book tours and other efforts promoting new books.
Authors: We need your help planning these events. If you have a new book — or will have one soon — please ask your local independent bookseller whether it would be willing to host your event (all events must be hosted by brick-and-mortar bookstores). Your bookseller may contact us at to schedule your event.
