Penguin Group has just launched a new radio series called The Literary Life that is completely written, produced, and hosted by employees of the well-known publishing company. Each episode will debut on the last Tuesday of each month AND will be here on my blog so you can just stop by and listen from here!
In addition to candid interviews with authors, regular segments on The Literary Life include: Inside Publishing, featuring a publishing personality giving a behind-the-scenes look into the book industry; Writer’s Rant, where authors are given the floor to vent; and Penguin Mix Tape, featuring interviews and performances by musicians-turned-authors. How fun!!! This month's radio show is at the end of the post for your listening pleasure.
To celebrate the launch of The Literary Life, Penguin Group is allowing me to giveaway a book of one of the authors featured on this month's show! I'm going to list the books below and I will allow the winner to choose which of the four books they would like. Small catch: the giveaway will end THIS Friday at noon, so you have two days to enter. Also, I'm not sure if the giveaway is in the U.S. or international, so go ahead and enter and I will confirm this with Penguin before I randomly pick a winner. Please let me know which country you live in when you enter.
Just leave a comment with your e-mail address and let me where you live!
Also, it would be very helpful if you could also e-mail your address to me at jennala(at)cfl(dot)rr(dot)com since I need to get the name/address to Penguin on Friday.
The books to choose from are:
Composed by Roseanne Cash
Both Ways is the Only Way I Want It by Maile Meloy
The Surf Guru by Doug Dorst
How Did You Get This Number by Sloane Crosley
Winner update 9/3: Winner is Heather (Zibilee)!!!
