There will be:
- A short talk from a very nice lady.
- A bit of reading from another very nice lady.
OK, you get the picture and you can get the full (proper) details from DJ's blog post or there are details on my sidebar that I put up prematurely, earlier this week.
There are two reasons behind this book launch, one is obviously to sell some books the other is an opportunity to raise some money for charity. (All the profits from the evening will go to charity.) We have a target which we would love to achieve.
Now, those of you who actually know me will know that I'm a miserable fucker. No sorry that was kind of a harsh word to use! Try again; those of you who know me will know I'm an unsociable fucker and these sort of events to me are akin to cutting out my liver with a blunt spoon. But, but (deep breath) for this occasion, to support DJ and the very worthwhile charities I am going to get fully behind it. Shit, where did I put my asthma inhaler?!
So, to show my commitment to putting bums on seats this is what I intend to do. Isn't it hard typing with sweaty palms? We are taking payment in advance for the tickets if or when we reach the allotted target for the charity donation I will get up and read the prologue to my book. If we don't there will be an awkward 10 minute silence!
Due to limited computer knowledge I've managed to put up a dodgy target monitor thingy in the sidebar to show our progress.
So............... in Big Brother speak "Who reads? You decide!"
