There is what looks like a useful and interesting new portal which connects Canadian authors with book clubs across Canada: The Authors Book Club.
Founded by writers David Albertyn and Ann Y.J. Choi, The Authors Book Club aims, in its own words, “to create an online community for authors and readers and to promote engagement between them”. The Club also hopes “to be a resource for book clubs in Canada and to connect them with authors”.
Worthy goals and a great way to promote Canadian authors while exposing book clubs to new writing.
Authors can put together a profile for the site consisting of a mini-bio, a description of their latest works, contact information and a note about where they’re located (and willing to travel to).
Five Rivers’ author, Nate Hendley, is part of the authors available through the service.
