BOOK PRESALE ALERT: This one answers the question I’m asked the most.
Last spring we released the only book on the subject Broadway Investing . . . and now we’re releasing a brand new book about the subject I’m asked about more than anything else . . .
Early Hungarian cabinet making!
No, no . . . jk, jk. (By the way, that cabinet making quip is a European Vacation reference.)
The topic I’m asked about more than anything is . . . how to raise money for Broadway or Off-Broadway shows.
So, in an effort to help those of you out there producing or self-producing shows (and as part of our #5000By2025 mission), this summer I wrote the only book about raising money specifically geared towards the theater.
And it’s available now for presale on Amazon.com for only a fraction of what it will cost when it is officially released.
What’s it called?
It’s a continuation of our “How To” series. The first was, How To Succeed in the Arts . . . or in Anything. And this is, yep, How to Raise Money in the Arts . . . or in Anything. (There will be one more in the series, by the way – I’ll let you guess what that “How To” is.)
This book covers . . .
- The different legal structures for raising money for the arts.
- Where to find investors for your specific project.
- How to script your ask in order to increase your chance for success.
- The most important part of raising money that most people forget (do this and you’ll raise the money you need 10x faster at least).
- How to enjoy raising money (it is possible – truly).
The book is gonna list for $19.95 . . . but you can get it via the Amazon presale for only $5.99 (Jeff Bezos likes when self-publishers give his customers a super-duper entry-level price for new books . . . and what Bezos wants, Bezos gets – and you benefit). Just do me a favor, after you finish it, give it a good review so that more people can find it.
Because the truth is, after Bezos takes his chunk, this book doesn’t make us any money. But it could find money for a lot of people’s projects.
And that means there will be more theater in the world. And that means the world will be that much better of a place.
