Book Club Membership Benefits

Book Club Profile

Tell Authors who you are as a Book Club: what you read, how you want to connect, and more!  Once you and your group have signed up, you will be directed to creating a Profile for your club. After you have entered your information to create your Profile you will become a part of our literary community and be added to the Book Club directory and begin to be able to use our Book Club Match program.

Book Club Match

Connect with Authors around the world through our innovative access portal where you can find Authors looking for Book Clubs just like you! As a Member you are given exclusive access to the Author members of NOVEL NETWORK™ looking to connect with new readers. We offer an innovative way to easily connect with these Authors through our online Bulletin Board where you can post a listing on exactly what you are looking for from an Author. Enhance your reading experience by arranging a meeting with an Author in person, over video chat, or even by simply requesting special discussion questions to help you further engage with a story.

Arranging an Author Visit is made quicker than ever with NOVEL NETWORK™. After connecting with an Author (through our Bulletin Board or by browsing and using our simple messaging forum) you can visit an Author’s Profile where you can access their Availability Calendar to see the times they are available and how far they are willing to travel to meet with your Book Club. Through this calendar you can make a reservation for an Author Visit online. Once an author approves that your group meets their personal requirements, your visit is confirmed and a payment* will be processed before the Author Visit is added to your calendar.

*While your membership as a Book Club is free, there is a

  • $100 Booking fee for each Author Visit for 6-15 Book Club Members, or
  • $200 Booking fee for each Author Visit for 16-30 Book Club Members.

NOVEL NETWORK™ aims to ensure that our Authors’ time is appreciated and valued. With a mandatory minimum 6 person/maximum 30 person membership to each Book Club, this reservation fee ensures that an Author feels that their time is being respected and that readers remember that while writing is their passion, it is also their job: they are both Authors and Entrepreneurs.
