Circle of Seven Productions opened their YouTube channel in March of 2006 and now has over 1000 book-related videos and nearly 8 million views to the channel. Of the over 1000 videos, nearly half of all COS videos are getting more than 5000 views per video.

They are loyal to authors. They are looking for entertainment. You can see all of that on our channel.”
