Authors Guild Connects Readers & Writers with Virtual Tool

The Author’s Guild has created Booktalk Nation to help authors without book tour budgets and readers without a way to see their favorite author in real life.

Would you use this service to connect with readers or writers? AppNewser has more about the program:

Booktalk Nation lets authors create digital events where the readers can dial in to hear an author read from their book, or watch videos online. Callers or web viewers can ask questions, as they would at a real life reading, using the platform. Readers can even order personalized copies of the book signed to them by the author online and have these books shipped to their homes. Independent bookstores can host these events and fill these orders.
