#LiarsINCBook Twitter Party with author Paula Stokes and TONS of prizes (INT)!

Hey all! I'm so excited to help out Paula Stokes with a Twitter Party for the release of her amazing book, Liars, Inc! It's a terrific novel and everyone needs to get their hands on it pronto!

Liars, Inc.

Just a couple of reminders for the party: 
WHERE: Twitter, use #LiarsINCBook to join
WHEN: Tuesday, March 24, 9-1030pm EST/8-930pm CST/6-730pm PST. If you are INT or in other time zones in the US, please calculate when the party is using this app:
WHO: The Twitter bookish population!
PRIZES: Tons of prizes donated by the wonderful author, Paula Stokes, ALL INT prizes!
They include...
1) Liars Swag packs
2) Control or Catalyst by Lydia Kang
3) The Cemetery Boys by Heather Brewer
4) Hemp Necklace
5) Finished copy of Liars, INC and huge prize pack TBD!

Tips for the party: 
1. You should have a twitter account.
2. You should be following me @CAhnBooks and @pstokesbooks to ensure that we can see your tweets and can contact you with prize information.
3. After each comment, you should end it with #LiarsINCBook or else we won't see it.
4. If you win a prize, I'll be sending you a google document to fill out. I will confirm your prizes after the party!
5. The EASIEST way to follow a twitter party is to hook up your account to a chat program. I use All you have to do is put #LiarsINCBook 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.
The other way is Tweetchat, with similar instructions.
6. 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.
7. All of the prizes will go to winners of the 6 contests held throughout! Each of the prizes are great so you should all stay for the whole thing!
8. We may have some extra secret prizes if you are all lucky, and I usually like to give one to someone who has been participating a lot, so even more incentive to stay the whole party long! :-)

#Mysterytwittertheater - Ensconced in Death... Find my Killer... and get some awesome loot while you're at it!

Something’s not right. I can’t explain it. I just feel…strange. And where am I? Why is it so dark? I don’t know what time it is. I can’t remember what I was doing before, well, right now. I remember leaving work. I planned to go to the library, bookstore, and coffee shop. But I’m not sure if I made it to all three. I’m not even sure if I made it to any of those places.

And now I’m…nowhere. Wait, what’s that over there? On the ground. It looks like…Oh no, could it be? It is—it’s me! And I’m so pale. I’m not breathing. “Wake up, Ensconced! You’ve got books to read!”

But I don’t wake up. I’m not Ensconced in Lit anymore. I’m Ensconced in Death.

Figure 1. Me. Ensconced. Preserved in an action pose. Or a deathly one. Whatever. Sue me, I'm dead.

I don’t know who did this to me, but I know why. I had this epic prize pack from Paula Stokes—all kinds of LIARS, INC. stuff and mystery crime scene prizes too. And now it’s gone. Someone took it, and I’m betting that someone is the killer.

Figure 2. LIARS, INC. prize pack includes a hand-painted LIARS tote bag from Pivot Book Totes, a signed finished copy of the novel, a notebook for writing down all your clues, a mini flashlight for investigating in dark places, a crime scene lanyard so no one crosses you while you’re hunting for evidence, crime scene candy, bookmarks, postcards, magnets, and special mystery gifts.

Hey. You there. You look smart. Are you good at figuring stuff out? If you help find my killer, you can bring him or her to justice and make sure no one else gets hurt. Oh and you can also recover the LIARS prize pack and keep it for yourself! I bet Paula is already trying to hunt down this criminal. Head over to her blog to get more information and start gathering evidence. Good luck!

Oh, but watch your back. The killer could be almost anyone…
