The Diary of Elrond Hubbtard 4 – The Beginning
Wow, so much has happened in the few weeks since Dinonetics was published. First up, we had a lovely book launch at the museum. Many friends were invited along and it was not without incident, let me tell you!
The launch party was great fun. So many people were interested in the ideas I put forward in Dinonetics. Here’s a shot from when we were gathered outside.
A few people had already read the book and asked me to take the time to explain the ideas further. I was so busy meeting and greeting I didn’t get much of a chance, but after some badgering from the guests I promised to set up a reading group. I even dropped in the idea of running ‘extension courses’ for a small fee. They seemed to like the idea!
But it wasn’t all good news. An old flame of Anne’s had the cheek to turn up, she seemed to get on quite well with him! I believe his name is Gunther, some long-haired European lout, no doubt!
After the launch dinner I let Anne know I wasn’t too pleased and she seemed apologetic. I am still not sure I can trust her, but if she behaves, I will forgive her.
Anyway, I set up the extension group meeting a few nights later. Four people turned up (including Anne) and listened intently as I explained how, through carefully applying themselves to the study of Dinonetics, they could become better people. I answered a number of questions around the application of the techniques I suggest and there were lots of excited nods and comments! I also got to charge $500 a head, which was quite nice.
Over the course of the next two weeks I ran two more book groups for more and more people. There’s definitely a buzz around Dinonetics and I’m recognised when I go into town, it’s pretty exciting!
The three guests at my very first study group have become my biggest fans and evangelists. They spend most evenings and all their days off at our house talking about Dinonetics and the concepts behind it. They are telling me I need to write another book and perhaps develop some courses to teach the techniques practically.
Diary, I should probably introduce you to these three people now as I have a feeling they are going to be pretty important to our future. The first is Simis Bachelor, he’s a journalist with a wife and two kids; Michael and Bella. Bella is actually the second person I wanted to introduce you to, she’s still in high school but she’s really passionate about Dinonetics! The final person is Malcolm Landgraab, a doctor with a wife and two children. The wife and kids aren’t really interested in Dinonetics, which is frustrating Malcolm, but here’s hoping they come around in time!
Anyway, that’s all for now. Until next time.
