Support Authors Showcase

Do you agree that authors and readers need and deserve to have a Chicago TV program dedicated to showcasing new books & authors?

View Authors Showcase Episodes

It is difficult for authors of new works, unusual genres and obscure topics to get their books in front of potential readers.  Self published authors and small presses  have minimal resources to reach out to the public.

With fewer book stores available there are limited opportunities for traditional book signings and readings.  “Authors Showcase” is attempting to step in and fill that void by offering authors an opportunity to present themselves on TV in a major market.

If you agree that it is important to have this type of programming available that reaches out to a diverse public audience then please support us through your sponsorship at whatever level you feel is appropriate.
