Thx everyone, it's a team effort, and in particular I've found the chatroom provides a wealth of immediate wisdom. As you can see with this episode, we can now see chatroom comments live as they occur during the reading, which we previously were missing. I think this will be of great value to authors, it's like a realtime lab experiment... nothing like it anywhere else on the net.
We have our first major publisher confirmed as a guest. However, August is holiday time, and I've just booked myself two weeks in September, so we'll be closing Pop-Ups for a bit, reopening on Sunday 23rd September. You'll still be able to make submissions during this time. I will post a more detailed announcement with exact dates soon.
