Happy Book Birthday to A Million Suns!! Beth has a day long virtual party planned and it's going to be epic! Here is the list of all the need to know details:
Every hour, from 8am until 5pm, there will be a new post on a new blog from around the blogosphere. Each post will have special content about the books, and a chance to win a prize! There will be direct links on Tuesday, when the party goes live, but the sites will be:
YA Book Central
The Secret of the Stars - that's us!
The League of Extraordinary Writers
Here's what Beth has planned straight from the great woman herself:
Secretly I think the best games are party games. So I'm building a game around the virtual party. I'll announce just what that game is on Tuesday, but let me assure you of two things:
(1) The game will be fun
(2) The game will involve an awesome grand prize
But you don't just go to a party to play games and get prizes, right? Heck, half the fun of the party is hanging out with the other people at the party!
So, during the live launch party, from 7-9pm, there will be live updates and tweets on Twitter, so you'll be able to participate in the launch party!
Make sure to follow @AMillionSuns, which will be manned by my husband during the launch party. He's going to transcribe highlights from the live launch party, take Twitter questions for us to answer directly at the event, and host some fun giveaways during the party.
There will also be an official chat room for Twitter. To join, all you have to do is sign into Twitter, then go to the TweetChat room here. You're welcome to check it out now, but it will be manned and live for the official chat from 7-9pm, Eastern Standard Time. I might pop in and out throughout January 10th to say hi to any early or late arrivals to the chat room, so please feel free to hangout at the official virtual hangout :)
Also: you can always just use the official launch hashtag to hangout, too: #amslaunch
Let's see--party hosts, games, and hangouts. What am I missing? Oh, yeah! Giveaways!
At every single blog from the party hosts up above, you're going to have a chance to win a prize--it'll be a random drawing, and open internationally. Each stop will have a party favor to give to one commenter, and that party favor includes signed books, AtU swag, and stuff from...NASA! (heckyeah! NASA! Special thanks to Ex Libris Kate for donating the NASA goodies!)
