Thank you to Rachel at RachelsRandomResources.com for organising this blog tour, and thank you to Anne John-Ligali for my copy of this book. I did a cover reveal for this book at the beginning of the month, and mentioned at that time how excited I was to read it. I was right to be excited, it is a brilliant book.
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.
This is a lovely easy reading short story. I think the cover does a great job of representing the inside story, the characters and the sparkles. Constance will be an interesting and friendly character to follow and I am already looking forward to seeing what she does next.
The story feels like it is setting a base for more stories to follow, yet still being a very enjoyable read on its own. I think if you use social media yourself, you will be able to identify with the characters that Anne John-Ligali has created. I wonder how many readers will have particular social media users in mind when they read this story?
I have a feeling this Author will be very popular, and her books will be quite addictive reading. I can’t wait for the next instalment.
I am already looking forward to the next part of this online friendship story, which is due out next year.

And now to really tempt you into the lovely world of The Big Event is Anne’s trailer for the book.
Anne John-Ligali is a writer and the founder of Books and Authors UK, a popular website featuring author interviews and book reviews. She loves all things books: reading, writing, going to book events, and meeting other book lovers. She has written a series of short stories and is currently writing her first novel.
When Anne is not writing, she is likely to be at soft play with her kids, taking long evening walks in Hyde Park, making green smoothies, window shopping, or having a pampering session at her local beauty salon (whenever she gets the chance). She can also be found watching box sets (albeit with a bit of shame at still having to catch up on Scandal, Grey’s, and Downton).
Originally from Peterborough, Anne now lives in London. After moving to London, she studied graphic design at the University of Arts and has held a number IT administration jobs in the city. Anne continues writing and aspires to write more women’s ficton books, a non-fiction book and several children’s books.
