#UNBREATHABLE Twitter Party with the amazing debut author Hafsah Laziaf, Oct 29, 8pm CST

 I'm so excited to get the opportunity to host the #UNBREATHABLE twitter party for the wonderful Hafsah Laziaf who wrote this book!

Unbreathable Goodreads Book Description: One hundred and fifty years ago, Earth was destroyed, and the remaining humans fled to the dusty red planet of Jutaire, where the only oxygen is manufactured, food is scarce, and death strikes often.

When Lissa's father discovers Earth still exists, she accidentally inhales the toxic air of Jutaire, and in one breath, discovers she isn't quite human.

Her father hangs for his discovery, and Lissa knows the Chancellors will come for her, for she saw the Earth that night too. With nothing to lose, she sets out to expose the truth. It isn't long before she meets Julian, a beautiful boy who can breathe the toxic air like she can - and shows her that the Jute, the original inhabitants of the planet, are more tangled in their lives than she knows.

But the Chancellors are only pawns in a greater game - one where the Jute control everything. Worse, the Jute plan to leave Jutaire for Earth, but to get there, they need her. And they'll stop at nothing until Lissa is in their clutches, even if they kill every human in the process.

The race for Earth has begun.

Unbreathable is a tale of love, redemption, and sacrifice, and one girl's struggle to find her place in a world where she doesn't belong

Just a couple of reminders for the party: 
WHERE: Twitter
WHEN: October 29, 8pm CST.
PRIZES: Books, e-books, swag! Only one of the prizes isn't INT, so definitely come if you are INT!

Tips for the party: 
1. You should have a twitter account.
2. You should be following both @CAhnBooks and @IceyBooks to ensure that we see your tweets and that we can contact you with prize information.
3. After each comment, you should end it with #UNBREATHABLE or else we won't see it.
4. I'll be selecting winners RANDOMLY throughout the party, so the more you participate and the LONGER you participate, the more likely you are to win a prize.
5. Retweets will NOT count towards a prize. But these are nice to do for your fellow tweeters if you like what they are saying.
6. There will be one contest in the last 15 minutes. If we can't decide a winner easily, then all entries will be placed into a randomizer.
7. If we TREND, meaning if enough people attend and comment over a period of time, then I will be giving away a bonus prize!
8. Ask Hafsah all of your questions! I will be there to guide discussion if need be.
9. If you've read the book, NO SPOILERS! Nuff said.
10. The EASIEST way to follow a twitter party is to hook up your account to a chat program. I use http://twubs.com All you have to do is put #UNBREATHABLE at the top of the page where it says "Enter hashtags." It should prompt you to link up your twitter account. Say yes. Then you should be good to go! The other nice thing about this is that you don't have to type the hashtag after each comment, the program automatically does it for you. And you don't have to search for the hashtag, it automatically just follows the convo.
11. To those poor souls who don't have a twitter account. It's totally EASY. Get a twitter account! I finally got one for my blog, and it took literally seconds to set up. I'm so sorry, but if you don't have a twitter account, you won't be eligible for the prizes.

SO EXCITED! I hope to see a ton of people there! 8pm CST on October 29th for one hour! Be there!
