A few day ago, Susan Stoner, author of the Sage Adair Mystery Series, her husband-cameraman husband George Slanina and I met to tape the first 4 videos of our new book series, Just Read It. Laurelhurst Village Assisted Living served as our host and we were joined by four guests to discuss books that had recently appeared on the New York Times Paperback Best Seller List. With us that day was :
Jason Reynolds, poet. He joined us to discuss The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson; Richard A. Lovett, science fiction writer and 9 time winner of the Analog Science Fiction Reader’s Choice Award, came to review The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by MaryRose Wood; Myrlin A. Hermes, author of The Lunatic, the Lover and the Poet, joined usto talk about, Where’d You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple; and Don Merrill, KBOO radio interviewer, shared his views on Mitch Albom’s, Time Keeper.
Each segment was 10 minutes, designed for a YouTube audience, and happily, the varied opinions about the books made our discussions lively. Our next step is production. We must design the credits that will appear at the beginning and end of each program and attach appropriate background music. After that, we create a channel on YouTube to air the segments. What’s left is to cross our fingers and hope that once we’ve built the program, viewers will come.
