Saturday, May 30, 6 p.m. Pacific (9 p.m. Eastern)
I'm aiming to fill a couple of hours, we'll see how it goes. I thought a weekend evening would give as many people as possible a chance to participate. That's also a good time for my Special Guest, who does in fact exist and has committed to be here but plans can fall through so don't hold me to it. If anyone has just cause for why this party should not go forward, speak now or forever hold your peace.
Just a reminder of how this might work: I'll do a live webcast on UStream.tv in which I'll introduce the book, share some original art, do some drawing, tour the "studio," tell some stories, answer all the questions you can think of, and try to have some fun. I may snack. Anyone can join the party by going to a URL I'll provide later and typing in comments or questions, to which I or anyone else can respond. I have no idea how many guests to expect--I would not be surprised by numbers very small or very large--but as with any good party I know it'll be an interesting mix of people. I'll be sure to mention the time and date many times beforehand so you've got no excuse for not showing. I'll also record the webcast (although I don't think the typed comments are recorded) for later viewing.
By the way, I haven't heard any more about when WHTTWOT will be available in stores and through online merchants. It's still June 9 as far as I know.
Hope you can come! No RSVP necessary.
