News from BCTV, April 30, 2013

Dear Readers,

Book Case TV, as you know, has been on hiatus for the past three months (actually broadcasting on re-run four times a week since then), while our team took a break from the endless demands of our heavy shooting schedule.  It does not mean however that we have been supine, staring at the ceiling during all this time.  On the contrary, feet on the ground, we have been busy planning our new season, honing our program, whose new look, we hope, you will appreciate.  We got rid of some segments and created new ones.

For new season (the third one),  we have 18 episodes to produce between now and the end of the year (6 over the Summer and 12 in the Fall), and we need your help.  We want to hear about your authors and books.  Starting now, we are re-opening our submission pipeline and accepting submissions in all genres, fiction and non-fiction.  You can either contact us directly by sending your book along with the PR sheet, or  send us your catalogue(s) so that we can comb them very carefully. 

I should have started with this: we have a brand new site. Much more detailed than our previous one, feeding form the production company Altered Ego Entertainment.  Now Book Case TV has its own.  You can access it by clicking HERE or on the bookcasetv tab above.  You will notice as well that we have incorporated new initiatives, such as the Book Case TV Awards, Book Case Engine, our new publishing arm, and Book Case Salon.  Lots going in the Book Case World. 

On a general note, I would like to remind you that we broadcast via NYC Life on channel 25.   Our program has been moved to Sunday evening, which is a much better spot to gain exposure.  Once an episode is aired, it goes straight into VOD (for free).  According to NYC Life's statistic, close to 1 million people tune in the channel on a weekly basis.  NYC Life has an exposure of 20 million viewers in the North East.  Our demo is mostly 28-49.  Also, bear in mind that at the moment, our program only focuses on US writers, with up-coming new releases. 

I look forward to working with you again and promoting great literature

Frederic Colier, executive producer
