You'll be in good company - recent guests have included Victoria Sutherland of ForeWord Reviews; Angela Bole of IBPA, Michelle Ollie of the Center for Cartoon Studies; Steve Fischer of New England Independent Booksellers; and Michael Boezi of Control Mouse Media.

Start by filling out the booking application form; please use a separate form for each show:

  • Face The Book TV is our new live-streaming online book-discovery show that brings the best of independently published books to the public through live-streaming and "bicycling" to community media stations. Interview-style format with authors and publishers about the books themselves.
  • Ask The Experts brings in experts on all aspects of the publishing process, as well as indie authors and publishers who wish to share their experience. Both shows are archived on YouTube at IPNELive. Focus is on production, marketing, publicity, design, editing, and other aspects of "making better books and selling more of them."
  • The discussion-format Office Hours is where IPNE.org members can ask questions and share best practices with each other. Think of it as your indie publishing coffee break! We schedule this show based on member requests. You may also sign up to host these sessions.

After we receive your application form, we'll contact you regarding your availability, topic, and the best technical setup (don't worry, it's pretty basic - the top 5 items are 1) a good-quality webcam (HD external is best, or a good built-in), 2) headset/earbuds, 3) broadband internet; 4) front lighting, and 5) a quiet location.

Please use the contact form at if you have any questions prior to filling out the application. We will not share the information from the form externally without your direct permission.

We gratefully recognize the help of Arlington Community Media (ACMi.TV) and our heroic crew, particularly Karen Einstein and Laura Williams. The editorial board at the Peeragogy Project (peeragogy.org) deserves credit for extensive support while we were learning the YouTube live-streaming platform, starting in 2012.

All three shows are produced by Pierce Productions (PiercePress.com) with the collaboration of Independent Publishers of New England (IPNE.org). Members of IPNE.org get priority booking on all three shows. Face The Book and Ask the Experts are recorded and archived on YouTube at IPNELive; Office Hours is less formal and currently not recorded.
