Author of "Savvy Auntie" Will Discuss Novel Writing and Engage in a Q&A with Readers

NEW YORK -  May 2, 2011 --Paltalk, the leading real-time, video-based community with over 70 million downloads, announced today that author Melanie Notkin will join Diana Falzone as her guest on the video chat program for Monday, May 2nd at 2 p.m. EST.  Participants can access the chat by visiting


Notkin recently released the book "Savvy Auntie", based on the popular website, which serves as the first go-to source for understanding what she coins the "Savvy Auntie lifestyle." The book aims to highlight American's fastest growing segment of women - the PANK (Professional Aunt No Kids) demographic and offers guidance on embracing this role, and dealing with the kids that come with the territory. Users are encouraged to log-on and share their own "Auntie Tales" and aspiring writers are welcome to ask how they can leverage their own experiences within their creative writing.


"So many women take on the role of being an Aunt - to a sister, close friend, close-by, or long distance and there hasn't been any tutorial to help us through the process until now. I'm so excited to interact with others who can relate to the circumstances in my book and share experiences via the great interactive nature Paltalk is able to provide," said Melanie Notkin.


Paltalk is the only video chat technology with the ability to scale for any size chat rooms (one-to-one or thousands-to-thousands) and has been downloaded more than 70 million times to date.  Paltalk allows users to connect with friends or people they do not know on a variety of platforms, including chat rooms, one-on-one video IM and SuperIM - the company's flagship instant messaging client that allows users to share video, audio and text with up to 10 people at any time for free. 


"Melanie is one of many emerging authors we've had the privilege of hosting on Paltalk and she brings to surface a topic that hasn't been explored by others," says Jason Katz, CEO of Paltalk. "Our fan base loves to hear about new projects and talk about different perspectives week to week and we're sure the millions within the Paltalk community will enjoy taking part in talking about their Auntie experiences this week."
