I am so excited about October finally being here come tomorrow! In addition to it finally being fall and hopefully COOLER temperatures soon, we get Halloween and over at the Bookies Facebook Page (where I am one of the admins) we have our annual Authorber Fest! We use the hashtag: #AuthorberFest
What is Authorber Fest? Every day in October a different author ‘takes over’ the Bookies page! This is where we can learn about the author and their book(s) that have written. They all plan all kinds of goodies to share, which COULD include giveaways! I have worked with several of these authors and look forward to them taking over the page! I will try and be there as often as possible!
Here is the lineup:
The link for Bookies is here.
Times authors will take over the page will be announced daily. There are giveaways going on! Be sure to check out Bookies all through October and discover a ‘new to you’ favorite author!
I thought I would share what I have done with some of these authors. It can range from just a review to an author spotlight or interview. The date they are taking over Bookies is next to their name:

Tomorrow is October 1, and that means it is time for Authorber Fest!!! What is Authorber Fest? Every October the Bookies Facebook page has daily author takeovers for two hours! This will be the third year we have done this. The author can do giveaways, talk about their books, contests, whatever they want! This is to increase awareness for the author. We always have a lot of fun!!! Check out the Bookies page and maybe learn about a “new” author to you!! I’m personally excited for several of them and hope I can make it to their takeover! I hope to post on here a reminder for their takeover day!!
Here is a schedule of the takeovers each day:
Here is the times for the takeovers. The times are Eastern Standard Time:
I hope you can make it to some of these author takeovers! If you can, send me a message through the Contact Me page or to firstname.lastname@example.org
