A New Idea and Some Opportunities

I recently attended a home concert that was a lot of fun and featured some amazing performers. It was an intimate social event and helped the performers earn some money doing what they love. I’m planning to create one or more events based on a similar model where perhaps 15-20 writers of a wide variety of genres get together to have a New Book and Music Release/Meet the Authors and Performing Artists/Book Signing/Holiday Gift Show event probably early in November.

I request your help:

I’d love for one or more men to host such an event at their home. The authors and performers (or I) would arrange for light refreshments and possibly drinks. The host would receive some free autographed books and/or and CD’s, the undying gratitude of participating authors and musicians, and the opportunity to meet additional amazing people.

Your suggestions of other free or inexpensive Bay Area venues, and any contacts or connections you have with and for same.

Your suggestions of Bay Area authors and musicians who you know or could connect me with.

Please also let me know if you’d be interested in helping to create, market, advertise, and/or set up the event.

I ask your help partly because I need to exercise my request muscle and largely because I need your help. I’m on schedule to release six more books in the next three months, bringing my total to 20, and I’m looking for more and better ways of getting them into the hands of potential readers.

Thank you!

With Love,
