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.

About the Author
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 fiction books, a non-fiction book and several children’s books.
If you have lots of ‘ONLINE’ friends like me, this book will be really hit home although it’s told in a humorous way.
I’m going to be a bit personal as I do find it is relevant, due to my disabilities and mental health, I don’t really have any real friends to speak off in real life but I have met some fantastic ‘friends’ online mostly through facebook. This story really touched me and to some, social media is fantastic for those of us who really struggle in real life but also we all need to be aware that those ‘friends’ may not be a 100% or those who are genuine can and will be affected, inspired by your online presence. It was really lovely that the book had a happy ending though.
This short story is very thought-provoking, inspiring and funny. There are many laughs and giggles in this book plus you can really resonate with it, as its so in with the times we live in now.
Anne is most defiantly an author to watch out for and I can’t wait for the next part of this series.
