Sushi in Sudbury, Friday, 2013.03.22

Your humble meri is going to be the general Massachusettsy area for a few days, and would like to invite those in the same general area to come have sushi.

Many of  you have received a Facebook invitation, but I know there are folks out there who don’t do the whole Facebook thing, so also posting this on my blog and from there, onto LiveJournal. If you didn’t receive a Facebook invite, and you’d like one, let me know.

Please RSVP by Wednesday (3/20), so I can make a reservation.

Hope to see you there!

Help me distribute free copies of Good Omens in 10 seconds or less.

As you may or may not know, I’ve been chosen as a giver for World Book Night 2013. When presented with the list of available books and asked to pick 3, I chose Fahrenheit 451, Good Omens, and The Phantom Tollbooth. The good folks at WBN have decided that I’ll be distributing copies of Good Omens.

Now, I’m not going to have a lot of time to hand out books. Just a few hours to hand out 20 books. That sounds easy, but think of all the people in public places handing things out that you simply ignore, or wave off. Now, keeping that in mind:

  • Help me come up with a way to get – and keep – the attention of people long enough to give them the spiel about the book.
  • Help me come up with a 10 second spiel to get someone to want to read the book.

Doesn’t sound too hard. Unless you’ve read the book. I mean, “A rollicking tale about an angel, a devil, a witch, the Anti-Christ, and the Apocalypse!” might scare some folks off, ya know?

So, lend a girl a hand, and help me come up with what I need to help introduce more people to the awesomeness of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

Invite: Gathering in Beverly, MA on Sunday, 2013.02.10

Hi, all!

G and I are heading up to Massachusetts the weekend of the 9th (arriving the 8th, departing the 11th). We have plans for Saturday night, but arr has graciously said that I can invite folks over for a gathering at her place on Sunday afternoon. Very low key. Hanging around and catching up and (undoubtedly) playing games.

If you’re interested in attending, please ping me, so we can get a general idea as to how many people might show up. There are lots of you I haven’t seen in forever, and I’d love a chance to catch up some!
