This is the story of how I created and hosted my first launch party.

Preparation for the event.

Release  Day Party

  • Set up event on Facebook. Remember to make the event public or only your friends can see it.

  1. Dan, Thank you for the reblog. Tomorrow, I will announce two up coming Facebook Launch parties by authors doing this for the first time.

One party is on Saturday and the other on Sunday.
