Bucca!
« on: May 06, 2005, 08:36:50 PM »
My box of 20 finally came in.  So, we're going to throw the Bucca party next week.  Everyone is invited.  We're thinking Thursday night.

Now, originally, I thought these books would come in earlier than they did.  I assumed that the 'box opening party' would be our first look at the novel.  However, that isn't the way it worked out.  I'd still like to throw a party, though.  

This time, however, I'll have to say that I'm not going to pay for the rest of you.  Maybe next time, but right now, I'm just too poor.  

I still intend to sign and give copies to my original writing group, who worked on ELANTRIS, and also give copies to those who have had a significant affect on the book's development.  Right now, those people stand at:

Ben
Dan
Nate G.
Peter
My thesis committee
My boss (who let me write ELANTRIS while I worked at the Cottontree.)
And maybe a few other individuals.

Is there anyone I'm forgetting?

If it matters, I would be happy to just trade the book I already bought.

And I won't be making it to Buca!

Nope, not yet.  Tage, however, will be out of town from Friday to Sunday, and I'd like to do it on a night when he, Nate, and Dan can go--since they were all in the original writing group.

Friday is out for me too. Thursday would work, or Wednesday if we reschedule HU to Thursday.

I could probably manage Thursday -- my book finally came in the mail and I need it signed!

Thursday would be great for me.  It's our regular date night.

Oddly enough I was going to suggest changing it to Friday, since I realized it would be a convenient stop-off for me on my way to Idaho, but it looks like Thursday is a better day for everyone. Brandon, I assume you'll be signing whatever books are brought to the party? Hopefully the ones I ordered will be there for a couple of family members.

Yeah, Thursday is best--turns out Wednesday is Enrichment night for Foxy Beak, so I'm home with the kids. And you don't want them at Buca.

I could do Thursday, though I wasn't even considering Friday, because of Tage.  If it would be better for people, and if Tage could come, that would be even better for me.  

However, if it doesn't work for people, we'll do Thursday.  Somebody slap 42, Sprig, and Prometheus and ask them which day works for them.

Either Thursday or Friday works for me, depending on the time.

Not sure if Prometheus is aware yet, he hasn't been around much lately. I'll ask when I see him.

Friday is out for me, as I said before. None of our family could take our kids last weekend, so this weekend is my anniversary getaway with Dawn. It's been too hard to set up for us to change it at this point.

Thursday it is!  What are people thinking.  Earlier or later?
