After our great conversations with Chris Anderson and Seth Godin about their new books, we decided it was time to make a home to show off all the great books that come from TypePad bloggers: books.typepad.com. It will collect biographical information, interviews and the podcasts we record all in one place. We also used Amazon's new aStore feature to put together a simple bookstore that makes it easy to browse and buy books by TypePad authors.
For those who are interested in learning about each month's Featured TypePad Book, but don't want to have to keep checking the site, you can either subscribe to the site's feed, or sign up to receive a monthly email about the program. Just enter your preferred email address at books.typepad.com and we'll keep you in the loop.
As for this month's featured author: We're really excited to talk with Shari Caudron, author of Who Are You People?, a look at fanatical obsession across the United States. (Bloggers, obsessed? Never.) Join us Tuesday, September 26th at 2:00 pm PDT for a Skypecast conversation with Shari. We'll be chatting about about pigeon racers, tornado chasers, Mayberry Days, furries, ice fishing, and diehard fans of Josh Groban. If you can't make, don't worry -- as always, we'll be posting a recording of our conversation as a podcast.
