Last night I had a party

Last night I had a party

Good morning world.

Last night I woke up at 1 am, put on my finery and went to a live stream book event.

Ok, the truth?

Last night I woke up at 1am and dragged my pyjama clad self to my pc, bottle of water in hand and was the camera woman for the live stream debut of the of The Mystery Hour with Con Sweeney in Second Life.

It was something I was approached to do and I didn’t hesitate in saying yes to even though the times are at odds with my reality.

Con Sweeney is a Social Media Advisor and Strategy and Applications Consultant in New York.

Currently the emphasis is on the Mystery writers of America and how they are doing during Covid and promoting their works.

If anything, what a great way to introduce non virtual people into the virtual world and enabling another platform opened up to show how people can come together and communicate and collaborate despite distance and dare I say it COVID19!

This will run every 3rd Monday in the Month at Draxs book venue and yep you shall see me there poised filming like a camera woman. Ooo I might purchase myself a virtual prop for this!!!

The YouTube channel is Here. Hit subscribe and the bell to be alerted to the next upcoming authors to be swooped into our Second Life.

Now it’s early morning and yes I woke up normal time. I’m sitting here drinking tea in my home from Wild at the Designer Showcase. Waiting for a man to tend to my boiler!

Yes you read that right!

Like many people affected with COVID19 many writers are having to find new ways to promote and discuss their works. So we are welcoming people into our virtual world to do just that and maybe at the same time, showing a wider audience how Second Life can benefit all parts of our society.
