June 2: Machine of Death comedy show at 826LA!

Our Machine of Death sequel, This is How You Die, comes out in July! (And it’s already been named one of Publishers Weekly‘s Best Summer Books 2013!) We’re so excited about this book that we’re throwing a party NOW.

It’s going to be a benefit party for 826LA, the nonprofit tutoring center that helps kids with writing skills and homework help. If you’re in the Los Angeles area this Sunday, June 2, you’re invited to the THIS IS HOW YOU DIE x 826LA COMEDY NIGHT in Mar Vista!

Proceeds from the event will go to 826LA, to help encourage the next generation of writers…and I’ll also be presenting a comically oversized novelty check as part of our partnership with them from the Machine of Death card game Kickstarter campaign.

The Sunday night show will be a great lineup of music, comedy & games, hosted by our pal Jordan Morris. We’ll be raffling off prizes (including at least one advance copy of the new book). Attendees will also get free bonus MOD game cards, and we’ll have a real-life machine (pictured at the top of this post, made by our fancy team of machine-makers) for you to get tested on, if you dare.

• Sunday, June 2, 8pm
• $10 at the door
• at the Mar Vista Time Travel Mart, 12515 Venice Blvd

MORE INFO ON THE LINEUP IS HERE at the Machine of Death blog.

AND HERE is a Facebook invite for RSVP purposes! (Optional, but gives us an idea of how many people to expect.)

I’m super excited about this show — I can’t turn off the impulse to just make stuff happen like this. I hope to see you there!! (We may try to livestream the event as well, but no guarantees.)
