It’s that time of year again when the local NaNoWriMo chapter have their annual Kick-Off Party.
Where it’s at: National Library, Multipurpose room (basement 1) at 6.30pm (till 8.30pm)
Theme (Yes, we always have a theme): Superheroes! Come dressed up as your favourite graphic novel character, both heroes and villains. Not compulsory but it’ll be fun.
Who’s invited: Everyone! Ok well, not everyone but everyone who’s doing NaNoWriMo, readers and comic book lovers.
We’ll kick things off with the year’s NaNoWriMo party, getting to know the newbies who just joined this year, catching up with veterans and we’ll have cake. There’s always cake at the kick-off and it’s never a lie.
Other than the Kick-Off, the Happy Smiley Writers Group (HSWG) is launching a new book, Bubble G.U.M. This book took us more than a year to write, edit (especially editing) and get it published. I’m so, so glad that it’s out.
So what is the book about, you ask?
It’s a sci-fi novel, set in Singapore in the year 2045, where the world as we know it is gone and the girls have to do NS. There’ll be meta-powers, mutant seabass, dolphins and bikinis as part of the NS uniform. Get the books to find out more.
The books will be going at $15 at the launch. Get it then before they slap on the RRP of $18 when it goes for sale online and in the bookstores (who will then slap on a GST charge). If you haven’t gotten Happiness At The End of the World, you can get it then too. It’s also going for only $15.
So come on down, meet the writers, buy the books and have some cake. We’re really friendly people.
