Necropolis guidebook (free beer)

Postby Ronnie » Sat Jan 22, 2005 3:33 pm

I have been commissioned by an Edinburgh publisher to write a guidebook to the Necropolis, to be published on Thursday 5 May. Now, I could really use some help with this:

Firstly, to walk round with me with a very early draft of the manuscript, to make sure that all the directions are right and that I have included all the best monuments. I'm thinking that this should take place next weekend or during the last weekend in January.

Secondly, to take an almost-final draft of the manuscript and use it for a self-guided tour (and not get lost). This will be towards the middle of Frebruary.

I promise those who take part will get a couple of pints, a note of thanks in the book, a signed copy of the book and an invitation to the launch party. Better than a poke in the eye with an obelisk, eh?

You can contact me at - ronnie [at] tartanpaint [dot] com.

Looks like Sunday, then! That would be Sunday 30 January. The St Mungo Museum opens at 12 noon, so maybe we could meet there for tea and scones (and a widdle) before setting off on our jaunt? ::):

Thanks for all your good wishes and encouragement. And offers of small furry animals. 8O

Don't think I can make Sunday I'm afraid - however more than happy to volunteer for a Stage 2 wander in a few weeks time...
