Author videos on bookarmy!

We have just launched our video page. We have only just started adding clips to author and book pages, and have about 300 so far, but we will be adding more clips every week so there will always be something new to watch and comment on.

You have always been able to chat about and to authors on bookarmy, but now you can also watch them talk about their books in their very own words.

We have a few favourites amongst the first clips, including Laura Dockrill’s brilliant performance of her poem ‘Rude Girl’, Tilda Swinton reading from Steven Hall’s mesmerising story, The Raw Shark Texts, and a wonderful illustrated trailer for Rivka Galchen’s Atmospheric Disturbances. Also, take a look at the trailer for Alex Burrett’s originally titled My Goat Ate Its Own Legs – make sure you have the volume up for this one!

At the moment, users cannot upload their own videos, but if you have any suggestions for a book or author video you think we should feature, please let us know.
