Social Media at its Best ~ Virtual Book Club with Author Eileen Goudge is a Huge Success

Last night I participated in a first of its kind event. MomTV, One2One Network and #gno teamed up for the very first virtual book club for a discussion of Eileen Goudge's new book Once in a Blue Moon.  It was a huge success! I hosted a group of eight women from Denver, including Twitter buddies @birdbanter, @chrishandel, @melissius. We feasted on a pumpkin beef stew that didn't taste half bad, if I do say so myself.   I loved the character Ollie in this book and absolutely had to honor his baking skill with a rather large selection of mini sweet baked treats from Whole Foods. We enjoyed conversing with best-selling author, Eileen Goudge, and book clubs from all over the country via live stream video on MomTV. Eileen handled the technical difficulties that we stickam users are used to like a pro! More impressive is how she handled the #gno conversation on Twitter. She answered questions from readers all over the country and we learned more about the writing process and the "history" behind some of our favorite characters.  I'm so grateful to have been a part of this event and hope to participate in many many more in the future!

Check out our Whrrl story from the event!
