The correct date and time for the facebook party

Can I make any more mistakes with the date and time of this facebook party!?

I must have had the calendar open on the wrong month when I set up the party two weeks ago, and when I wrote the last post about the 20 questions survey and set it to go live today, because since then I have realized I had the date (and some of the times!) wrong. (As my husband pointed out so helpfully this morning, there is no Thursday June 7.)

And, to complicate matters more, I later  changed the date to Tuesday because of a previous commitment. (A Grad!)

To say I am in my own little world when I’m immersed in the first draft of a new book would be an understatement.

So, let’s try it again.

On Tuesday June 6 I’ll be posting and chatting with readers for an hour from 10 – 11 am PDT (1 – 2 pm EDT) and again at 6 – 7 pm PDT (9 – 10 pm EDT), but you can drop in any time Tuesday June 6th and add your comments to be entered in draws.

To see the corrected original post– including what’s in the draws and my answers to the 20 Questions Survey — click here.

Now, if I can only remember on Tuesday to show up, everything will be fine!

Here, as promised, here are my answers to the 20 Questions Survey:

Can you see me in this picture?

1/ Where do you live? On Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

2/ Which social media platform do you use most often? facebook and pinterest

3/ What is your age range? 50 – 65

4/ What are your two favourite drinks? coffee and red wine

8/ I live in the country near an in-between sized town.

9/ What do you like to do with your women friends? See question 5.

10/ All time best gift from a man? I usually either get nothing at all or an amazing gift. LOL Once, my husband bought me a huge, gorgeous pair of antique Russian Amber earrings he bought at auction. Almost too big to wear! (They are pears.)

11/ What was your favorite book you read last year? Hard to say. Maybe A Discover of Witches, by Deborah Harkness, a romance of sorts.  (I’m looking forward to my trip to England this summer when I’ll read the second book in the series and visit some of the locations, like Oxford.)

12/ Do you buy books of  – any price

13/ Do you work outside the home? Early on, I did too many jobs to list, but particularly liked working in the library. Since then, I have worked with my husband on our small business at home, which gave me the opportunity to write.

14/ What part sticks in your mind. Various parts. The darkroom seduction in Summer of Fortune, the dancing on the dock in Lake of Dreams, Augusta’s interference in The Good Neighbor, when Blue thinks, “I built it for you,” in Home for  Christmas.

My big backyard.

15/ Favorite Fortune Bay character or couple? The one I’m writing now!

16/ What are your hobbies?  I do a lot of photography, particularly  when I’m travelling, biking on the local section of the Trans-Canada Trail, puttering in my (too-large but lovely) garden.

17/ What other small town authors do you read? Lots of them! I’m always reading a new one, but I particularly like Kristan Higgins and Susan Wiggs.

18/ What do you enjoy reading in an author newsletter? I like to see links to lifestyle blogs and of course new books.

19/  What TV shows are you watching this year? Always The  Voice! My one reality show. Currently I’m watching Bull, Madam Secretary and Elementary, as well as Halt and Catch Fire and The Crown on netflix.

20/ My email address. Judy@JudithHudsonAuthor.com I always love hearing from readers!

It’s been lovely getting to know you through the survey. If you want to receive email notice of new web posts, just click HERE.

What’s the plural of Fiasco?

As a friend pointed out – the time should be 1 – 2 pm, EDT!

Seems to me last time I had a facebook party I made a mistake in trying to do the time zone shift. For future reference, I do  know what time it is where I live (PT) so I’ll let you do the math!

Facebook party fiasco!

It was one of those middle-of-the-night revelations. I’d scheduled my Getting To Know You facebook party for the same date as my niece’s graduation and celebration dinner! I have to go–I want to go. And I knew you’d all understand, so

I’m changing the date to of the facebook party to Tuesday June 6th, the day before the original date.

Same times, same prizes. Just the day before. June 6.

To recap –

On Tuesday June 6th I’ll be posting and chatting with readers for an hour from 10 – 11 am PDT (1 – 2 am EDT) and again at 6 – 7 pm PDT (9 – 10 pm EDT), but you can drop in any time Tuesday June 6th and add your comments. If you comment, I’ll enter your name in the draws for:

  • 1 autographed bundle of all 4  Fortune Bay paperbacks
  • 5 draws for autographed single books
  • and the 10 ebooks I’ll be giving away to participants.

If you haven’t already, please let me know if you think you can come by signing in here, on the event page.

Also – thank you to everyone who has filled out the 20 Questions Survey. I’m having fun reading the  responses and I’ll be posting my answers to the survey – as well as the names of the prize winners  – on June 8.
