Self-published authors are unsung literary connoisseurs seeking opportunities to get heard. Thankfully, ReadersMagnet recalibrated The Festival of Storytellers this year and concluded its Chapter 3 victoriously. The said self-publishing agency is dedicated to giving a platform for indie authors.

Without a doubt, The Festival of Storytellers Chapter 3 is a phenomenal success in the world of virtual book fairs. Attendees themselves have expressed satisfaction and longing for the next chapter of the biggest author-centric event available online. Specifically, three programs brought authors to the spotlight during the book festival: Roundtable Sessions, Author Live Streams, and Author of the Hour.

Interactive Roundtable Sessions

We speculate you’ve already sat in a meeting with a roundtable or anything similar to that setup. Similar to that concept, the Roundtable session is a virtual meet-up where 15 people can enter a room via the Zoom app. But, instead of a roundtable, the hosts and moderators can choose a modified background view that’s favorable for everyone. All participants were given a chance to speak their minds and promote their books.

Authors and fairgoers were invited via URL or link to the session. A particular topic is provided to guide the discussion. We tackled 16 relevant subject matters during the two-weeks virtual event. Some of the topics include The Use of Social Media Efficiently Connecting with Your Audience, Improving Your Writing Styles, What Makes You Not Finish a Book, and eBooks: How Reading a Book Online is Like. The most attended session was the eighth-day event where the subject “Book to Movie: Would You Watch a Movie Adaptation of a Book You Already Read?” was discussed with 17 participants.

Engaging Author Live Streams

We assume you’ve already attended a conference where a speaker stands in front of an audience. With the same idea, live streams happen during a scheduled time for a particular author. The author can choose what topic to discuss and how the session will run. Unlike the Roundtable sessions where attendees can see each other, authors during live booths can only interact with the audience via real-time comments.

The Author of the Hour featured specific authors with a host or hosts providing questions or relaying inquiries from commenters. This particular program will be explored more in the next blog article.
