    introduce yourself.

    I just emailed the NYC Kos group. Do you think they'll get the email, or should I email them individually?

      group emails are strange because there is no indication of a new message, so unless a person is checking all of the time, the messages don't get seen.

      Even better, you could ask sidnora for the NY meet up email list. She might be happy to share it. I see no reason why not, unless there is something I'm not thinking of and if there is, blame it on me.  :-)

      I wish you'd gotten in touch sooner. As it is, I can't use the NYC meetup list to promote your event, because it is for DK meetups only (if I made an exception for one person, I'd have to make many such exceptions, and people have subscribed to the list on the understanding that it's for meetups only).

      I suggest that you kosmail the people rubyr suggested individually, and I will republish this diary to the NYC group. I am also really bummed that I can't be there myself Thursday, as I wrote below. Break a leg!

        I didn't think I was going to have a NYC event, and it's been difficult to keep up with everything.

        Totally my bad.

        I'll kosmail individual people -- no worries. Wish you could be there!

          Now I'll just have to walk into the store and buy the book, hoping that someday we'll meet and I'll get you to sign it.

          Come to think of it, have you considered doing an event at Netroots Nation next summer (it's going to be in Detroit)? The Progressive Book Club usually has a booth in the exhibit hall, and lots of authors come there to meet, greet and sign copies of their books.

            •  I'm not sure who you should contact about it (2+ / 0-)

              whether someone from NN or from the Progressive Book Club.

              I also realized that, while I am honor-bound not to contact the DK meetup list for this, I have no such prohibition about contacting my non-DK friends, of whom many live within walking distance of Beth Elohim.
