Kate and Sarah interview the world’s top authors about their novels while cooking recipes inspired by their books. The authors and hosts then recommend the best book they have read lately. Two copies of their book (signed by the authors and the hosts) will be given away, as well as a pack of books supplied by publishers.
The show has already received strong support from the publishing industry and has received many books, Maggie Beer’s latest offering Recipes for Life, to give to readers. In some instances, we will be interviewing famous chefs when they release their latest book.
Our first shoot was with Graeme Simsion, the bestselling author of The Rosie Project (which has sold more than 3.5 million copies worldwide), and his wife Anne Buist, the author of three psychological crime thrillers. Dubbed Australia’s ‘hottest literary couple’ this husband and wife writing team have co-written their latest novel titled Two Steps Forward.
In between the main shoots, Word of Mouth TV will be posting “snippet” interviews from international authors touring Australian and appearing at Australia’s premier writers’ festivals.
The first YouTube season will comprise fortnightly 15-minute episodes. A longer version is being produced as a television pilot.
