BEA TwitterParty

Twitter Party with Sharon!

Thursday, May 29 – Twitter Party at 8am EST. The topic is “Beyond the Borders” – a discussion of novels that “transported you to a different world, taught you about a different culture, and/or helped you step into the shoes of someone different from you.” I will add my insights, along with probably hundreds of others, and will be offering one copy of The Passions of Dr. Darcy during the Twitter Party chat. Quite apropos, I thought! I’ll remind everyone next week, but the party will be on the @ArmchairBEA Twitter page with the hashtag #ArmchairBEA

12 Comments for Armchair BEA — FULL INFORMATION!

  1. I love the things you get involved in! I’m going to have to go to IG today and look at peoples #shelfies for a bit of shelf envy. LOL

  2. Thanks for your generous offer, Sharon. I am so excited as I would love to win your latest novel (The Darcy Saga prequel) and add it to my book collection. That’s the only one I don’t have.

    • Luthien, I was giving it a bit more time, but since you were the only one who took the plunge and went on my website scavenger hunt (and got all the answers correct!) I consider you the winner! Be on the lookout for an email from Amazon.

  3. I had trouble with the Google+ thingy as well, Joy, but I think it’s done now! In my case, it’s getting links to copy and paste using the virtual keyboard in this iPad.

I love to hear from you!
