Weekend Photographs: The Third Party

Thanks to all those who came to The Thrid party. It was so much fun to see and talk to all of you, and celebrate the release of my first novel. Photos of the fun below.

Started the party off with a big bang. Hopefully this will accelerate global warming.

A mixed reaction to the initial fire plume.

Everyone liked the fire since temperatures were in the high 40s. It was a great way to keep warm.

The post popular thing with the kids was the hayride.

Adults liked it too.

Me reading a chapter from The Third.

The kids would rather watch the fire then listen to me read from The Third. (Can't say I blame them.)

But everyone seemed to have a good time....

...especially the kids.

The Third Launch Party and CarbonQ

In celebration of Earth Day, I’ll be having the official launch party of my environmentalism run amok novel, The Third, on Friday, April 22. There will food, prizes, fun, and hayrides! In following the general theme of The Third, I’ll be having a little CarbonQ as part of the party. What’s a CarbonQ? It’s a big bon fire (weather permitting) that will put several hundred pounds of CO2 into the air. Let’s face it, this has been a cold, cold spring here in Utah and it’s about time we did something to get summer here a little faster.

Friends, spouses, significant others and kids are all invited to come too.

Come and have some fun!

When: Friday, April 22, 2011 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.

Where: Stone Family Farm 301 W. 2nd St. Ogden, Utah  84404

What to expect: 6:30 – 7:00 – Start hay rides. Mix and mingle. 7:00 – 7:30 – Prize drawings. Lighting of the fire (weather permitting) I’ll read from a section of The Third while carbon 7:30 – 8:00 – More prize drawings, hay rides, mixing and mingling, and I’ll sign books.

Oh, and if you want to buy a copy of The Third, you can buy a copy for just $10. If not, that’s fine. Just come and have some fun!

Hope to see you there. :-)
