Book Launch Opportunity

Introduction

Every month, on the date and at the time of the author’s preference, a Behind Our Eyes member’s new or recently published book takes center stage at our Book Launch Zoom event. The author is in the spotlight, either through a personal presentation about the book or an interview structured to help the author bring out the high points aimed at making the book a “must read” choice. A question and answer period sometimes brings out details which escape attention in book reviews. Early readers’ vocal support brings a personal quality to their endorsement.

Our Book Launch team is made up of authors from several genres. They can assist with planning from date of scheduling to presentation. Fiction, poetry, and nonfiction book events have been well attended by a broad audience of Behind Our Eyes members as well as other authors and readers, family and friends, or as a result of special announcements or promotions. The author is encouraged to publicize the event.

If you’d like to schedule a book launch, allow a few months before your proposed presentation date. Read our calendar below, and attend an event. Recordings from past events are available upon request.

If you are not a Behind Our Eyes member, click the “Join Us” link on our website to find our quick and easy membership form. We welcome you to take advantage of this incentive, and to share in our other resources and opportunities.
