Here’s to hopin’ our first two RG2E Kindle Fire Winners – Terry Parrish and Melissa Ohnoutka – are havin’ a ball with their new Kindle Fires too!
I just treated myself to one too (more on that in an upcoming post), and wow, they’re superfab terrific!!!
Speaking of which…
Coming soon – this Thursday, April 12th at 7 PM Central Time – I’ll be hosting a very special “Meet-and-Greet” on the Kindle Fire, using its waaay cool “Bubble Tweading” (that’s my name for it ) Feature!!!
Basically, what this Kindle Fire Feature/Update allows us to do is to have a live chat “inside a book” with our readers!!! 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’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, I’ve been reading Kris Jenner’s Memoir and noted quotes of hers I really like.
Keep in mind, as always, when features allow for open commenting, you will be attacked by the nasty witches and warlocks too…for example, 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?!
Anyhoo…Bubble Tweading is waaay fun, and I can’t wait to Bubble Twead on Kindle Fire with all of you and our RG2E Peeps too!!!
What a terrific new way to interact with our readers, get to know them and see what they’re liking – or not liking (that’s valuable too) – about our Ebooks!!!
In the mean time, in order to check out this feature, all you Kindle Fire Peeps need a D. D. Scott Ebook to use in my upcoming Bubble Twead, right?!
So, how ’bout I Ebook Gift y’all the Ebook I’ll be Bubble Tweading in this coming Thursday night?!
Who all would like an Ebook Gift Copy of my Boxed Set?!
***Now then…no worries if you don’t have a Kindle Fire yet…I’ll also do some special Live Chat Events with all your waaay wonderful Nook, Sony, Kobo, iPad, Smashwords and/or Free Ereading Apps Readers!!! We’ll set those up soon on Facebook and perhaps Twitter too in the near future!
So, if you superfab Non-Kindle Peeps would also luuuvvv an Ebook Gift Copy of my Boxed Set, pipe in below as well!
***Note: Like we do at The RG2E, I’ll Ebook Gift up to 50 copies of my Boxed Set today!!!
It’s Your Turn, WG2E-Land: Who all’s Kindle Fire Bubble Tweading?!
Happy Ereading and Bubble Tweading, Y’All, and See U Kindle Fire Peeps Thursday Night!!! — D. D. Scott
