The radio show offers the great opportunity to sit down and chat, live on the air, with working fiction and non-fiction writers, editors, poets, journalists, publishers and all others engaged with the written arts. The conversations focus on the writing process, the work that has been produced or is in progress, life in the literary lane and all the other tangential things that talking about the written word can lead to.
I’ve realized though, after a year, that we don’t have enough time on the air to allow for conversation and input from our listeners. Nor is there time to share news and information about events that we come across that could be of interest to all the readers and writers out there. This includes other books we may be reading that pique our interest.
Hence, Carolina Book Beat, a blog dedicated to sharing the written experience in a more interactive manner with our listeners in particular and with anyone else who may be interested in general. It also provides the opportunity for written reviews of those works that, for whatever reason, we can’t manage to get to on the air.
I invite, encourage and look forward to your input, reviews, suggestions and maybe even questions that someone out there may have the answer to. Please send us your comments, questions or suggestions by clicking on the Leave a comment link listed at the beginning and end of each new posting. We’d love to hear from you.
So…Welcome! Check out the pages and here’s to connecting with each other in cyberspace.
