London, United Kingdom - 14 March 2014 -- How do readers discover interesting stories? How do publishers and authors gain access to their market? How do you pick where to go for your next holiday? How can travel destinations enter new markets, which have synergies with the travel market? The Buena Vista Book Club could well be the answer. This website provides a new platform to discover new authors/old favourites and new destinations to travel to.

What’s with the name?
Buena Vista = Beautiful view – opening your eyes/mind to new places to visit or new authors to try.
Book Club = an online place where members can discover new destinations and authors. Forget once a month, traditional book club, think online access.

The Buena Vista Book Club is membership based and free to join. Every month there will be new feature authors and a new feature destination to travel to. A bit like having a ‘local’ guide you around. Film content is Full HD quality. All of which will remain on the website and become a bank of information for members. And as a nice added extra for their members, there might be the chance to win a great travel prize, great book prizes from the featured authors and if they are lucky, a few more goodies and member only discounts too.

Perhaps their tag line sums it up best: Love travel? Love reading? Love Buena Vista Book Club.

Buena Vista Book Club launches with:
Julia Stagg, Fiction (publisher Hodder & Stoughton), discusses the wonderful characters of the Fogas Chronicles, set in a delightful village in the Ariege area, Midi-Pyrenees, South of France. This is a typical small French village, seen through the eyes of the locals. From catching up with friends in the café, indulging in some Pot-au-feu, washed down with a wine from the Languedoc region, or watching a stage of Le Tour de France, this is French village life at its most entertaining.

Mari Hannah, Crime (publisher Pan Macmillan) winner of the 2013 Polari First Book Prize. Mari introduces us to the gritty crime world of DCI Daniels and welcomes us to the Newcastle/Northumberland area. Using such dramatic backdrops as Hadrian’s Wall, Bamburgh Castle & Coast and The Angel of the North, DCI Daniels keeps Law and Order in the North.

Up from grabs will be a stack of fabulous books from Hodder & Stoughton Publishers and Pan Macmillan Publishers.

Who is behind Buena Vista Book Club?
Stuart Dunlop - spent 11 years at Travel Channel International, Producing and Directing on location before becoming Creative Director until 2010. He now owns LemonWedge Productions Ltd and has spent 2 years developing the concept and building the production team.
