Less than three weeks after its March 03, 2013 release exclusively on Amazon for Kindle, the 2nd edition of my book, What I Wish I Knew Before I Moved to Hollywood, hit multiple Bestseller’s and What’s Hot lists on Amazon.
In Kindle Books, it landed at #13 in books about the Music Business. In all books about Music, including paperbacks and hardcovers, it hit #72–even landing ahead of Quincy Jones’s book “Q on Producing,” which was #88.
It also hit the Amazon Hot New Releases List in multiple categories including for all books on the Music Business #4, Music General #65, and Humor and Entertainment: Movies, #44. Scoring #4 on the Hot New Releases Music Business List gave it the honor of appearing sandwiched between Madonna’s “Body by Madonna” and a Biography of the Rolling Stones, “A Prince Among Stones.”
Along with my own outrageous ride as a screenwriter and actor in Hollywood, What I Wish I Knew Before I Moved to Hollywood recounts the stories, struggles, triumphs and lessons learned of numerous creative artists in the fields of filmmaking and television–including award-winning actors, festival-winning directors, Emmy-winning producers, network executives, movie stars, staffers, comedians and screenwriters. In the filed of music, interviews with Grammy-nominated singers, songwriters, and platinum-selling music producers reveal Hollywood from a perspective few see without years of experience and success. Overall, the book encourages readers to follow dreams while their eyes wide open, whether those dreams lead to Hollywood or their own hometown.
The new 2nd edition is updated and expanded with additional interviews and insights. It is available exclusively on Amazon Kindle at a discounted $4.99 and can be read on all Apple and Android devices as well as Mac and PC with the free Kindle App.
I’m encouraged by the success of the book so far and look forward to seeing it grow in popularity and usefulness for artists and for anyone who seeks encouragement to take the risks to follow their dreams. Please share and tell friends and family about the book to help keep it selling well and helping people. Without you, none of this is possible.
