About Booktalk Nation
Booktalk Nation's nationwide phone-in events are intended to supplement book tours and other efforts promoting new books. Booktalknation.comprovides an e-commerce platform in conjunction with its events, allowing readers to order books that authors will personally sign at host bookstores. Proceeds from these sales are divided between the host store and any affiliate brick-and-mortar bookstores that bring book buyers to the site.

For the next few months, Booktalk Nation will be hosting up to three events per week. We expect to increase the number of events as more bookstores sign on as hosts.
