Mark you calendars! My very first book launch event is scheduled for Saturday, May 25 from 5:00 – 8:00 PM at Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee Shop in Roswell.
I don’t want this to be some boring “Buy my book, buy my book, look at me, buy my book” event. It’s going to be the 36th anniversary of the original release of Star Wars. Crazy ideas are pinballing around my head. I’m thinking Jawa Java…I’m thinking SW Trivia contest…I’m thinking open mike SW-inspired poetry…I’m thinking SW-inspired fashions!
Ummmm…actually, what I’m really thinking is that I need suggestions.
I’ve been out there on Pinterest pinning and pinning all sorts of fun and fabulous party ideas on my Not So Long Ago, Not So Far Away board, but I have this wee bit of a problem with editing myself. Mainly because I have a much larger problem with being realistic about time &/or budget constraints. The main thing is that I want this to be a fun, friendly, and, yes, possibly a little wackadoodle, celebration of Star Wars fangirls (without scaring away the guys!)
What do you think would make this first book launch event a memorable, pinable, interactive SW celebration without breaking the bank…or any of those pesky copyright laws that can make the Lucasfilm/Disney folks so cranky? Please post comments here or on my Facebook page. (Or send a private message if you’re feeling shy.)
NOTE: This isn’t a rhetorical, What do you think?-type question. I really do need help.
PS – If you can’t come to this event, no worries! There are several more events in the works, including parties at the Awakening Fine Art Gallery in Dahlonega on Saturday, June 8 and the Midland Theatre in Newark, Ohio on Saturday, June 22. Stay tuned for more updates!
