• If you’re not on Twitter yet, head over and set up an account – it’s free, easy and fun! Pick a username that’s short and fits who you are, and upload a photo so other partygoers can see your lovely smile!
• Take a few minutes to play around with your new account: click @YourName to see public tweets directed to you, click Direct Messages to see private messages. Click Find People at the top of the page to search for some of your friends or favorite celebs to follow.
To join the party on August 4, you can search #BNParty on Twitter or use our official party tweetgrid. Parties move fast, and you want to refresh often if you’re using Twitter. TweetGrid refreshes automatically. Check out Tweetgrid below – there are columns for you to see ALL party tweets, tweets just from Brenda or Harlequin and tweets directed at you!
• Ask Brenda questions or chat with other partygoers—just be sure to type #BNParty at the end all of your party tweets! (This is added automatically in TweetGrid.) This feature (called a hashtag) allows everyone to know your tweet is part of the party.
• Join the fun! No one expects you or your tweets to be perfect; we’re just happy you made it to the party! And don’t get discouraged. If your tweet is overlooked at first, ask again! The more you tweet, the more fun you have.
• Watch for questions from @HarlequinBooks to win awesome prizes including iPads, books, and gift cards!
• Please don’t post any spoilers and pay attention to the time zones, the party starts at 8:00pm EST.
• Please feel free to spread the word. We look forward to chatting with you!
