I got this email today from Authors Read. It's really sad that their closing their doors, since this was (in my opinion) one of the best promo opportunities out there.
Apologies in advance to all concerned with this message:
Authors Read Radio will be closing its doors as of noon, July 31. Apologies to all the guests who have booked with us for Aug-November of 2010 for this program. We will be unable to fulfill that obligation with you.
We will no longer be accepting applications on the program - however if you feel you have a topic suiting our Conscious Discussions audience (nonprofit orgs, greening the planet, etc) than please do feel free to query us for that. See our site for more info: www.brummet.ca. We will be not able to run the radio program as of July 31st due to a change in the family that requires us to make more time available. It is with some sadness that we let this radio program go, as it was such a wonderful experience supporting other authors in this way. However all the archived episodes of Authors Read will remain online indefinitely for those who would like to sample those previously aired shows.
Our other endeavors including the newsletter, blogs, media ad exchanges, and Conscious Discussions Radio show, etc, - will all continue as usual. And as such we continue to welcome networking, ad exchanges and so on. *New website changes at www.brummet.ca will be happening over the next couple of months, so keep dropping by to see what we've done there as you have time. Also - Coming in Aug/Sept we will have affiliate opportunities for our e-books for those of you who are interested in this. Watch for announcements in our newsletter and on the blog :)
Thank you, too, for all our writing-colleagues who have supported us by purchasing one of our 3 books - helping us keep our projects going as well. I greatly appreciate the feedback from publicists and publishers who have seen the value of Purple Snowflake Marketing and have begun to recommend it to others! Thank you all, so very much.
At least the back episodes will still be available. That's always good. But now this means that I won't be reading from MALEVOLENT DEAD on there in Sept. :,(
