Ron Hogan 's new venue for interviewing authors!

This is from the incredible Ron Hogan, a friend to writers and readers and I want to pass it along.

Most of you are familiar with the website, and some of
you might even have done interviews with me over the years. I'm
putting together a new version of Beatrice -- an app that will publish
feature-length interviews with authors of fiction and nonfiction, as
well as streaming video from those conversations. I've already got one
issue -- featuring acclaimed memoirists Darin Strauss, Deb Olin
Unferth, and Alina Simone -- just about ready to go, and several more
interviews already taped. But I'm asking for a little help with the
initial development, which is why I've launched a Kickstarter

If I can raise enough funds by the end of March, I'll be releasing the
Beatrice app for free; the more I'm able to raise, the more interviews
I'll be able to share before charging for new issues. I'm really
excited about this project -- I think it's a great way to extend
Beatrice's mission of introducing readers to great writers -- and I
hope you'll believe that a new publication dedicated to raising
authors' profiles is worth supporting.

Whether or not you're able to support it directly, though, please
consider spreading the word to your friends -- and, for those of you
who have an online presence, to your readers. The more people hear
about this project, the more likely it becomes that enough people will
contribute to the campaign to make it a success. If you're on Facebook
or Twitter, and you'd like a shorter URL to share with your friends
and followers, you can use

Thank you for hearing me out -- and for any support that you're able to give!

You're the perfect guest, Caroline. I mean, gorgeous, great writer, and you share your interview on FB. What more could Ron want? (-:
