"The New Business of Acting: The Next Edition" looks at a very "new" industry ...

The New Business of Acting: The Next Edition
Arriving on September 1st!
I started writing about the business of acting back in 2000. Nearly two decades later, I'm really excited to announce that my third book, The New Business of Acting: The Next Edition, will be published on September 1st!

This book is loaded with everything you would expect, with some significant differences and additions. I write about the #MeToo movement and its impact on new-to-the-business actors, as well as what it all means to former or current "working" actors seeking to rebrand their careers. 

The book also explores the struggles of an industry to rebrand its own tainted image. The necessity to be and how to become a Hollywood hyphenate and how to produce an A+ self-taped audition are a big part of the new book. 

All in all, it's 20 new and revised chapters that I have been working on for almost a year. The Next Edition has just arrived on amazon.com for pre-order at amazon.com

I'm looking forward to a fall book tour and lots of important and meaningful conversations about where we go from here and how we're going to get there.
