It was last July when BHB reported about Brooklyn Heights author Jennifer Miller’s unique marketing strategy for debut novel “The Year of the Gadfly,” as she hawked the book via a “novelade stand” at Montague & Henry streets.
That was then. Miller has now joined forces with Togather, which lends assistance to connect authors with readers via digital and in-person events. This July, she is on target—according to the Brooklyn-based organization—to “set the world record for most club visits in a single month”… 100 book clubs in 30 days. How is this possible, you ask?

A “book club” constitutes an audience of five-plus, while a “visit” comprises 30+ minutes on Skype. Togather’s Taylor Fattoross tells BHB, “We’re more than halfway to reaching our goal and have libraries, book stores and book clubs from all over the country signed up to participate.”
On her webbie, Miller notes, “Is this crazy? Absolutely. Can I do it? Yes! But I need your help.” Each book club is eligible for free stuff, like a free copy of “Gadfly” and signed book plates.
