2006 Book Tour

I think it's time for another book tour. Remember 2004? Remember the trip we made to NY and ATL/Athens when the first Self-Management for Actors came out? Man, that was fun!

In 2004, I spoke at the Drama Book Shop in New York, University of Georgia in Athens, and yourAct Studios in Atlanta. And I was only "on the road" for a few days. I think I now want to do an even bigger road show this time around, speaking at more colleges and doing more book signings.

This is all Faith's idea, BTW. She's helping me cook up a way to come see her in New York (where she'll be living for the next year or so, doing her new radio show for PRI) and the more speaking I do, the longer I can stay. Hee!

Anyway, I'm thinking I need a rockstar New York "producer" type for this tour (looking like October-ish). Anyone out there with contacts (or willingness to make some) interested in helping me put this thing together? (Good news... I should be an even easier "sell" on the lecture circuit due to the success of my books and the festival heat for the films I've cast.)

I've registered at Eventful, so I should be able to put together a "demand" thingy soon. That'll help.

All right... let's hear it! Who's into it?

Oh my god you rock!!! How cool!

I wonder if there is one person out there who can be BOTH of our publicists?? How much would that rock??

Oh and you and Keith are bringing your own copies of the scripts, right? I thought you said you would so I'm not printing ones out for you.

No BOnTour is complete unless it rolls through Dallas.

Bonnie, contact Terri Cole Juhasz (terrijuhasz@yahoo.com) and/or Alyssa Bennett (alyssarbennett@aol.com) at Stonestreet Studios in Manhattan (stonestreetstudios.com). Alyssa is the head of the studio, and books special guests for workshops/lectures with the students. Terri teaches the class on the "biz" of acting. Tell them Cole Matson highly recommends you. (I'm a recent grad of their program.) And if you come, I DEFINITELY want to know. I'm a big fan of yours, Bonnie! I've read all your books and your entire blog, and I'm catching up on reading all your columns. You're an inspiration!
