We scheduled a fan chat for this Wednesday, January 16, 2013, at 8:30 PM EST with author Michelle Leighton where YOU have the opportunity to chat with her online and ask her the questions you’ve always wanted to know about Down To You and Up To Me or anything else for that matter. Of course, she has complete control over what she does and doesn’t answer.  :)

If you are new to our fan chats, we utilize Tinychat (which are live chat rooms) and will post the link on both Facebook and Twitter around 8:00 PM EST Wednesday night. The link for the chat is: http://tinychat.com/q2328

  • You simply click on the link, which will take you to the chat room. (Do not login using Facebook, which seems to lock up or kick you out).
  • Select Guest and change your user name
  • If a Facebook pop up appears, press cancel
  • You’ll now be in the chatroom

Listed below are some frequently asked questions to help you understand how Tinychat works.  So spread the word and we hope you can join us!  

Do I need a webcam to join the chat?
No.  All our chats are conducted off camera so there’s no need for one.

Do I need to have a Facebook/Twitter account to log on? It’s asking for one, and I don’t feel comfortable using my real name.
We respect your wish to remain anonymous and totally understand your concern.  No, you don’t need to have an account.  It should give you the option of joining a chat as a “guest.”  If that option is not available, try opening the chat link under a new browser (Safari, Firefox, Opera, etc.).  The new browser option should prompt the guest option.  If it doesn’t and you would like your name changed in the transcript, just contact us at the end of the chat and we’ll change it for you.

I’m on my phone and can’t log on! Help!
If you’re using a mobile (iPhone/Android), our suggestion is to download the tinychat app.  The same goes if you’re using a tablet:  http://tinychat.com/download.

I’m using a Mac / PC and I can’t connect or log on.  How can I join?
If you’re using a Mac / PC and still can’t get logon, try a different browser other than the one you are using (Firefox, Opera, etc).  If you still can’t log on, then try downloading the desktop app: http://tinychat.com/download.

I’m using an App on IPhone or Ipad.
After you have connected to the chat DO NOT log out or switch apps. If you do in order to reconnect you will have to power down device. Tiny Chat app will not allow you to leave app and return with out the power down.

I keep getting a plugin error or crashed.  How do I fix it?
While we can’t help with technical issues, our only suggestion would be to reinstall the plugin.  If that doesn’t fix the issue, then try to download the tinychat app and go from there or use another browser.

I’ve tried the above and still can’t get in, but I have a question for the author. What can I do?
The easiest thing would be to tweet us your question(s), and we’ll do our best to get your question answered.  Afterwards we’ll give you the response and you can read the chat transcript.
