Who All Wants to Kindle Fire Bubble Twead with D. D. Scott?!

Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville!!!

I'm over the moon to announce a very special event coming to ya later this week...

This Thursday, April 12th at 7 PM Central Time - I'll be hosting a superfab fun "Meet-and-Greet" on the Kindle Fire, using its waaay cool "Bubble Tweading" (that's my name for it :-) ) Feature...inside my D. D. Scott Boxed Set!!!




I've been playing around with this feature the last couple days, and it's just beyond fabulous!!!

Basically, what this Kindle Fire Feature/Update allows us to do is to have a live chat "inside a book" as we're all readin' it!!! It's as if we're Tweeting each other in real time right from inside the Ebook!!!

How cool is that?!

I call it Bubble Tweading (okay...the Tweading is Bufo Calvin of I Love My Kindle's term for it...LOL...but I added the Bubble) because you're kinda Tweeting while you're Ereading (there's the Twead), and you access this feature by tapping on the Bubble icon along the Home Toolbar at the bottom of your Kindle Fire screen.

Here's how it works:

Begin reading whatever Ebook you'd like to from your Kindle Fire. While you're inside the book, tap on the Home Screen Bar at the bottom of the page you're reading then tap on the Bubble icon.



A screen comes up that you can comment on, and your comment is then added to the stream of comments inside that book as well as to the Kindle Community comments. You can also choose to have your comment posted on Twitter and Facebook (which I have also been doing...for example, check out my Facebook Wall, and you'll see a few I did over the weekend :-) )

The Feature even allows you to post the areas of the book you've highlighted and then post those on Twitter and/or Facebook too! Notice, on my Facebook (DeeDee Scott), I've been reading Kris Jenner's Memoir and noted quotes of hers I really like.

And no worries, Y'all, yes, you'll see some nasty comments in my Bootscootin' Blahniks Bubble Tweads...but that's okay...at least these peeps felt strong enough to comment, right?! :-) Although, it never ceases to amaze me that people can be sooo rude...I have no problem at all if you don't like my books, but wow, can't these peeps find a more human kind way to let authors know that?!

Anyhoo...Bubble Tweading is waaay fun, and I can't wait to Bubble Twead on Kindle Fire with all of you A-mazing D. D. Scott-ville Peeps!!!

What a terrific new way to interact with you, get to know you and see what you're liking - or not liking (that's valuable too) - about my Ebooks!!!

In the mean time, in order to check out this feature and encourage y'all to use it, I'll tell ya what...all you Kindle Fire Peeps...

How 'bout I Ebook Gift y'all the Ebook I'll be Kindle Fire Bubble Tweading in this coming Thursday night?!

So yep...who all wants a Kindle Gift Copy of my D. D. Scott Boxed Set?!




***Now then...no worries if you don't have a Kindle Fire yet...we'll also do some special days like this with all you waaay wonderful Nook, Sony, Kobo, iPad, Smashwords and/or Free Ereading Apps Readers!!!


Happy Ereading and Bubble Tweading, Y'All, and See U Kindle Fire Peeps Thursday Night at 7 PM Central Time!!! --- D. D. Scott
