Summer is the Time for Parties!

posted in: Various Musings | 2

Summer is right around the corner, although I’m sure there are parts of the world where it already feels like summer has arrived.  It’s usually that way here in my neck of the woods, but this year, it has been unseasonably cool and rainy.  I’m enjoying it while it lasts!

But I didn’t start this post so I could wax poetic about the lovely weather we’re experiencing.  You can do that with your neighbor anytime.  😉  I instead wanted to alert you to an event I’ve put together that you might want to know about.  It’s going to take place on Facebook in exactly one week’s time.  I’ve gathered thirty authors together, and we will each be putting at least one of our books on sale for 99 cents. During the party, though, we’ll also be doing a lot of other things–giveaways, games, and getting to know each other.  I promise you won’t want to miss it.

The shared sale isn’t the only thing that’s different about this party, though.  If you’ve ever attended a Facebook author party, then you’ll know what I mean when I talk about this part.  You’ll usually have several authors who have designated time slots in which they “take over” the party.  That time is theirs to do with what they wish.  I’ve been a part of parties like that, and I’ve also hosted parties like that.  This party is a little different.  Instead of one author “taking over,” there will be anywhere from three to five authors an hour.  It’s like a real party!!!  It’s going to be fun and lively and likely a little frenetic, but I think readers will feel like their time wasn’t wasted.  I think it’s going to be a wonderful time had by all–and the response is so wonderful thus far that I might host another one again later this summer!

If you’re already sold on the idea, you can join the party here (I’ve already started giveaways, so you might want to check in!):

If you’re not quite sold on the idea yet, let me show you the list of authors who will be in attendance.  Bear in mind that each will make an hour appearance (I’ll announce the schedule later this week) sometime between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time.  Each will interact with readers and some might give a few extras away.  Each will be offering one of his or her books for 99 cents during the party, and I will post that list later this week (again, on the party page–if you check it out, looked for the post pinned to the top).  Here are the authors who will be joining me next Sunday (listed in alphabetical order):

  • Ren Alexander
  • Daryl Banner
  • Chloe Barlow
  • Jennifer Benson
  • Christa Cervone
  • Melanie Codina
  • Kelly Collins
  • Kathy Coopmans
  • Renee Dyer
  • Rene Folsom
  • Stacy Gail
  • Kendall Grey
  • Me! 🙂 Er…Jade C. Jamison
  • M.R. Joseph
  • J.M. LaRocca

  • Jill Prand
  • L.A. Remenicky
  • Sarah Robinson
  • Joanne Schwehm
  • M.L. Steinbrunn
  • E.J. Shortall

Would you agree that that’s a pretty amazing list?  Yep, I think so too.  And imagine…if you decide to pick up one of the sale books offered by each of these authors, you could be saving $60 or more on that day–all while having fun.  I do hope you’ll join us, even if you can only spend part of your day with us.  You don’t want to miss it!

Here’s the link one last time! –>  Hope to see you there!
