Flashmob Launch

July 18, 2009 at 3:03 pm (Uncategorized, Writing Ranting)

Always wanted to be part of a flashmob? Or join a pirate crew?
To help “launch” my twitter novel on Saturday 1 August, dress in your most piratical gear and relax calmly in/around Tilleys Devine Cafe (Lyneham shops, Canberra, Australia) or browse in/near the excellent secondhand bookshop next door. Attempt to arrive/don pirate gear at 2pm (park at the nearby schools if necessary), and vanish or change into an ordinary citizen at 2:30pm.
Bonus points for speaking as a pirate.
Yes, there will be candy and free flash (under 1000 words) stories. I and my minions will be randomly handing them out to any pirates we see/hear.
Extra candy for children. Because pirates care.

    Can I dress as a music pirate?
    (i.e.the way I always do?)

    Aren’t flash mobs meant to be essentially secret?????? ah well – the piccies will ocme in handy I am sure!

      Secrets are for. . . people who don’t show up. SOMEBODY has to know in advance.

      Okay, I admit it. I probably don’t deserve the mantle of flashmobber.

      (But MY flashmob gives out candy to children!)
