BLOG BLITZ & GIVEAWAY: The Big Event by Anne John-Ligali @rararesources @annejohnligali @booksnauthorsuk

The Big Event
by Anne John-Ligali

Welcome to the Blog Blitz and THE BIG EVENT!!  Find out about this short story, a GIVEAWAY and more!  We all have a social media presence - see how that translate to real life!

You are cordially invited to the party of the season where you'll meet Constance and friends in action. 

Constance Jeffries is excited when she gets the chance to meet up with virtual friends at a get-together in a London hotel. She’s been tweeting and messaging her lovely friends for years and feels they must be just as excited to finally meet her in person too. Or so she hopes. 

The Big Event is first part in a short story series about the importance of ‘real’ friendships and how it’s the little things that matter the most.

My Review:

For those of us who have made friends via social media platforms, this story will really resonate! 

This short story is about a woman who attends The Big Event where she finally gets to meet her online friends in real life. What she gets is mostly disappointing encounters as what she had perceived in her mind based on their social media presence, is tainted by how they are face to face. I think quite a few of us have been there before! But then that one person turns everything around.

"You just never know who's watching, or who you're inspiring." And this is always true. So mind your p's and q's when online. <3
