This Thursday, July 17th, we’ll be hosting another Facebook party to celebrate the Big Marietta Fair series from Montana Born Books!
In the past, our Tule parties have been in the evenings but this time, because we’ll have quite a few overseas authors in attendance, the party will begin at 9:00 AM Pacific, (12:00 Noon Eastern), and we really hope you can join us for some great fun!
Some of my readers have emailed to ask what exactly a Facebook party consists of so I thought I’d explain it here on my blog in case there are others who have questions too.
A Facebook party is an online event; a fast and fun way to host a ‘party’ in order to socialize with friends – without the hassle of cleaning up your house or worrying about drinks or food! It’s scheduled as an event on Facebook, and we invite our friends to join us at a specific time (9am PST / 12 Noon EST) on a specific date (Thursday, July 17th) and once you’re on the page, the fun begins!
All you need to do is show up and be ready to chat! The guest authors and the host of the party takes care of the rest. Here’s the link to the party page – https://www.facebook.com/events/1438966929723023/?ref=br_tf .
Once you get there, click the Join button and you then be able to invite any of your friends to attend too. Show up at the designated time and start chatting, just like you’d comment on any status on Facebook. There will be lots of posts/content to browse and comment on from many of our guest authors. And keep an eye out for the giveaways too! There will be many many prizes for you all!
If you come in late, don’t worry. It’s an event wall so all the conversations will still be there and you’ll also be able to catch up on the giveaways.
If the page jumps too quickly, just take your time and scroll up and down.
If the page doesn’t seem to be jumping at all, hit the refresh button on your browser and you should see new content!
If you have any questions or trouble figuring something out, feel free to email Lee (firstname.lastname@example.org) or send her an FB message and she’ll help you out! I hope we’ll see many of you there!
Before I sign off, tell me, have you ever been to or participated in a Facebook Party? Everyone who comments here will be entered to win a fun summer prize pacakge with the winner being announced Friday! Good luck!
