party

Invited exactly to what, I’m not very sure. Well, yes, a Facebook event. But my understanding of Facebook is about on a par with my understanding of the indescribable mess that for some reason still calls itself the United Kingdom. I dare say if I took the time to figure it out, Facebook might appear a little less complicated than Brexit, but I’ve never been that motivated, you know?

OK, here’s the thing. A few months back, a story of mine appeared in an anthology, Utopia Pending, and one of the other authors asked us if we’d like to host a slot in a Facebook event. Ever eager to learn new tricks, I said yes, so now I’ve got till Wednesday to think of something to do for a whole hour. Quizzes, prizes, giveaways – that sort of thing. Fun stuff. But don’t worry – I’m just one of several hosts, and they’ve done this before, so while my own slot might be a fiasco, theirs will be slick and professional.

The event is actually for the launch of a mini-series, The Mutation Chronicles, and it runs from 4 pm to 1 am UTC, which is 12 noon to 9 pm in New York and 3 am to 12 noon in Srednekolymsk. Check out the link here.

And what makes a party a success? That’s right – the guests. Since my own Facebook reach extends about as far as the end of my nose, please don’t hesitate to pass the invitation along. As we all know, the more the merrier – I look forward to seeing you!

    Have fun 🙂 Curtis. Spend the hour posting on various groups & answering questions. Oh, and it helps to never do an event like this sober.

    Curtis:
    Bill McCormick says, “You forgot to link to the event and specify your time slot.”

      The link is there but it’s true I didn’t give my time slot: 8pm GMT. 4pm EST (I think).

    I’m a little iffy on the time, but I’ll drop in. I’m EST, just north of NYC. What time should I jump in? Is 3pm OK? (I leave for work at 5pm)

    Sorry, Curtis. I see you’re up 8 to 9. I’ll be at work.

      No problem, Mimi. It went well – plenty to take away from the experience for future occasions. Maybe a Co-op / Rabbit Hole event? I prepared too much and my quizzes were too difficult – but I think you’d have liked them!

        Yup 🙂 Those questions were too involved for me to even consider answering because my attention span on social media is about 7 seconds. 🙂

          I’ll work on some easier stuff for the Rabbit Hole vol 2 launch. And GIFs of scurrying rabbits.
