IPNE Live Streaming Guest Information Form
Our live-streaming shows, Face The Book TV, Ask The Experts, and Office Hours, 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.

This form serves as an application for appearances on our three shows. And you'll be in good company - recent guests include Victoria Sutherland of ForeWord Reviews; Angela Bole, CEO of IBPA; Steve Fischer, Executive Director of New England Independent Booksellers; Gina Humber of Diversity Is a Verb; and Michael Boezi of Control Mouse Media; to name just a few among the dozens we've produced.

ABOUT THE SHOWS:
* Face The Book is a new live-streaming online book discovery show that aims to bring the best of independent publishing to the public through live-streaming and sharing with community media stations.
* 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.
* On the free-wheeling Office Hours, IPNE.org members can ask questions and share best practices with each other in a discussion format.

After we receive this form, we'll contact you regarding your availability and 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.

Thanks so much for your interest and participation. Please use the contact form at IPNE.org/Contact if you have any questions. We will not share the information from this form externally without your direct permission.

Technical Requirements
Live streaming is free and arguably easy, but to create the best quality production values, some attention to technology is required on everyone's part. Many libraries and community media stations have free equipment you can use - get to know them! The key is to test all equipment well before you begin. We will ask first-time guests to be available for tech run-through one hour before the show begins. Please check which items you will have on board and tested at the time of the show.
