I very rarely do these posts when I sit down at my laptop and write directly to you, my blog readers. This week over on the crazy yet wonderful world of Twitter, I hosted a readathon called #sunathon – you may/may not have heard of it. If you have, you probably took part and made in into the success that it was. Thank you for that. I wanted to write this post because last week during the readathon, I woke up every day to hundreds of tweets from you all regarding #sunathon and due to that, I started to resemble this chap:
Yes, I am purple all over. Joke. No seriously…
Words on my blog won’t even come close to how overwhelmed I was last week. It was truly fantastic and I absolutely loved the fact that so many people came together and read. Within a week, people who I have never spoken to before became friends and that’s amazing. Twitter is a powerful place – in both good and bad ways, but thankfully, this time it was all good in the hood.
I was originally going to share a day-to-day diary with you all. I typed it all out but it was unbelievably long. So instead, I wanted to share a little information bit on how well I did plus when these reviews will be available.

Due to the success of #sunathon, I’ve decided to continue with the theme of the seasons and next up we have #fallathon – and no, that does not mean you fall down the stairs or trip up whilst reading. #fallathon will be happening in October. I certainly hope you’ll all take part. Due to high demand, I will be doing a Christmas one as well.. It won’t be called #wintathon in case anyone is wondering. I’ll be announcing that in my #fallathon diary but I can confirm that it will be at the beginning of December.
If YOU would like to help me promote the next readathon, simply email me at EmmaIsWriting@outlook.com with the subject title – #fallathon and any message you like.
Thank you once again. I’m extremely touched by all the tweets, blog posts, Youtube videos, Instagram pictures and Facebook statuses. I love you all and I can’t wait for #fallathon in October.
