Take one genre, two critics, five authors angling to break out of the pack and what have you got?
Blurb! the new book show that’s anything but bookish.
Each week beginning today at 9 p.m. ET, Sally Shields – best- selling author of The Daughter-in-Law Rules – and Dr. Kent – CEO of Blooming Twig Books – review not books them- selves but pre- recorded pitches from five writers whose literary works are hot off the presses (or soon to be).
And each scribe gets a mere three minutes to convince the hosts that theirs is the work worth cracking.
But if they succeed, they capture the coveted Book of the Week title.
That means Sally and Dr. Kent post the winning work prominently on the official Blurb! website (just as we will, here on these pages).
And to top it all off, the winning author gets a guest spot on the show – during which to make an even more in-depth pitch – live to listeners worldwide.
