Facebook Live With HarperCollins Authors

HCFrom HarperCollins Press Release:

HarperCollins today announced weekday programming for book lovers exclusively through Facebook Live. Starting Monday, June 6, HarperCollins fiction and nonfiction authors and employees will be participating in daily Facebook Live sessions around specific topics, each lasting between 15-45 minutes. The line-up will feature authors discussing their books and their writing process, and taking questions from fans – live from their homes, the HarperCollins offices, bookstores, on walking tours, and beyond. The sessions will appear on the authors’ Facebook pages, as well as on the HarperCollins Book Studio 16 Facebook page and other HarperCollins channels.

“We are thrilled to launch daily programming of HarperCollins authors through Facebook Live,” said Lisa Sharkey, senior vice president and director of creative development at HarperCollins. “This is an amazing way for fans to interact with authors and get a look behind the scenes of publishing. We are always seeking new ways to engage readers and expand the reach of our authors and Facebook Live is an exciting new approach.”

The programming for each day of the week will have a different theme:

  • Motivational Mondays will be for inspirational authors and feature self-help, religion, spirituality, fitness and generally uplifting themes. Authors will actively engage with their fans in various ways, from demonstrating exercise routines to helping them learn to meditate. Participating authors include:
