Rest Up for Monday

Barbara Vey -- March 4th, 2011

Rest up this weekend because Monday starts one heck of a week here at Beyond Her Book.  Yes, it’s time again for the 4th annual Anniversary Bash.  For those of you who have attended in the past, you can help me explain what to expect.

The Anniversary Bash is an online “virtual” party.  What that means is that we party 24/7 from Monday through Saturday and you do it from the comfort of your home or office or where ever you have computer access. We’ll be celebrating different genres every day…something for everyone and a chance to discover new ones.

Over 200 authors, publishers and publicists have kindly donated “virtual” (that means pretend) food, drink, decorations and entertainment for your enjoyment all week.  We’ll be meeting up in different locations everyday so you really have to be sure to stop by often so you don’t miss anything.

Through the extreme generosity of many in the publishing industry, we will be giving away 17 e-readers (Kindles and Nooks) throughout the week.  In addition, there will be books, t-shirts, mugs, gift cards and other wonderful merchandise.  And the good news is that there will be hundreds of winners.

All you have to do, kind readers, is stop by and leave a comment.  There will be lots of conversations going on, so just join in like any other party you’ve ever been to.  Every comment counts as an entry and winners will be picked everyday and announced on Monday, March 14th.  You will have one week to claim your prize or you lose it.  And you don’t want to miss any of these.

Here’s the daily schedule, but e-readers will be given away daily, so get your comments in every day:

Monday, March 7th - Paranormal, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror, Urban Fantasy (Takes place in haunted house)
Tuesday March 8thThriller, Mystery, Suspense, Adventure (Takes place at a murder scene)

Wednesday March 9thPublishers, Editors, Bloggers, Librarians (takes place on an island)

Thursday March 10thInspirational, YA, Nonfiction (takes place at a shopping mall)

Friday March 11thContemporary/Historical/Erotica/E-Books/Audio (takes place at a castle)

Saturday March 12thRomance Blowout (takes place at Niagara Falls)


The party officially starts at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, CST, so everyone in the world is invited and goes nonstop until midnight Saturday night.  After that, commenters will not be eligible for prizes, but you can still post.  Every time you leave a comment it counts as one entry, so feel free to talk up a storm, there will be many new friends to make and a wonderful opportunity for readers and authors to get together and have a great time.

I’m so excited I can’t stand it.  I’ll be dropping flyers off at libraries today and I hope you all help me get the word out.  We’ll be talking about it on Twitter (#BHBbash will be our party room) and Facebook.  Now it’s your turn to get the word out to all your fans and friends who won’t want to miss the bash of year (and they’ll thank you forever if they win one of the e-readers or other marvelous prizes).

Bottom Line: The traditional 4th anniversary gift is fruit and flowers…I will “virtually” accept all kinds.

They may taste excellent, but refined foods have very little vitamins and minerals, making you try to eat more in order to have enough electricity to get with the day.
