So, all ten cities/dates on the February Mark Does Stuff Tour are now chosen, but I’m saving that as a Christmas present for y’all. YES, I AM GOING ON TOUR. I will be promoting my eBooks, selling merch none of you have not seen, and organizing meet-ups for this fine community. However, I’d like to kick things off early with a test date next week in San Diego, California! YOU SHOULD COME HANG OUT!
If you live in San Diego or anywhere nearby, I am going to hold a prototype event at Claire de Lune Coffee Lounge in North Park on December 26th, at 5:00pm! This is not an official calendar event at the coffee shop, as this will be more of a meet-up and a chance for me to experiment with a few ideas I’ve been kicking around for the past two months. Either way, I would love to meet some of the fine folks who contribute and read the stuff in this community, so let’s do it!
I’ll be organizing this day and the full tour through my personal Facebook page. It’s just easier to keep track of this way. (You are welcome to add me there, if you like!) If you are going to attend this date or are considering it, please go to the Event Page I’ve created in order to RSVP. This is incredibly important, as I need to know how many people are going to come.
If you don’t have a Facebook page, you are welcome to leave a comment below confirming that you will be attending or plan to attend. Again, this is needed to gauge space in case like 100 people say they’re going to show, and then I might have to switch venues. On that same note, if you know of a venue that could host us that might be better-suited (and is open on the day after Christmas), feel free to let me know! I am not opposed to moving it, as long as I can communicate it to everyone.
This event will be FREE OF CHARGE. (It looks like I’ll be able to do the same thing for ALL ten dates on my tour as well!) I will bring a poorly designed donation jar if you’d like to help support the Mark Does Stuff endeavor, which includes my new private server, publishing books, buying merch for y’all, and to pay for the tour next year, which I have to pay for out of my own pockets. Otherwise, do not worry if you don’t have money to spare. This meet-up will not cost you a penny.
Okay, so this little experiment of mine is finally starting. I hope that I can meet some of you, and I’ll announce the full tour very, very soon. Dates will be in the Midwest, the East coast, and CANADA. TWO CANADIAN DATES TOTAL VICTORY. If it is a success, I would love to do a second and third tour later in the year in the south, the west coast, western Canada, AND I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO GO TO THE U.K. So let’s make this happen!
Remember, visit markdoesstuff.com to buy my eBooks, as the money there goes to support all of this stuff, which is not really that inexpensive to run or pull off. I also have a CafePress store with tons of merch that you would love to own. Anything you can do to help would be sweet!
THANK YOU ALL. I HOPE TO MEET A BILLION OF YOU IN THE NEXT TWO MONTHS!
