REMINDER: Armchair BEA is NOW!!

Design credit: Nina of Nina Reads

Last month, I shared a little bit about Armchair BEA with you, but I am back today to tell you that it is happening right NOW!!!  (Disclaimer:  I come to you as a co-founder and organizer of this event, so I may be a bit biased on the awesomeness of this online convention!)

Over at Armchair BEA Central, you will find a large number of discussions going on, both on blogging and on books!  Twitter parties are starting tomorrow and going through Saturday night. We have guest articles from professionals in the field.  We have sneak peeks from Book Expo America courtesy of our on-site correspondents.  We even have a new feature of an Instagram Challenge.  And, I cannot forget to mention the more than 300 giveaways thanks to our amazing sponsors!!

It may all seem a bit overwhelming!  The exponential growth of this event, even from a planner's eyes is beyond believable at times!  Therefore, I leave you with a few pieces of advice . . .

  1. Participate in as much or as little as you would like!  Maybe a Twitter party is all that you have time for.  Or, you would rather just connect on the bookish chatter via the genre daily topics.  Do what you can.  It is simply impossible to do it ALL! (Just remember that you must be a registered participant to be eligible for the giveaways!)
  2. Remember, this is an online convention.  All the information, the discussions, and the links will still be there in the future.  We want you to use this as a resource all year long; not just during the week of the event.
  3. HAVE FUN!  If it begins feeling like a chore, take a day to breath, and come back for more later! (See #2)

Now, head on over to Armchair BEA Central and check out all the excitement.  If you have questions or comments, please do not hesitate to share them in the comments or contact me directly at tiftalksbooks (at) gmail (dot) com.
