The Sunday Giveaway: Showbiz – The Novel

When I was a kid and discovered baseball, I devoured everything I could on the subject . . . including every movie, and every book about the subject, especially those Matt Christopher jems.  (Remember those?)

When fans today discover Broadway, they probably do the same . . . except that there aren’t too many novels about the subject.

Until now!

Here comes Dress Circle Publishing, a new house dedicated to the Broadway book.

What I love about D.C.P. is that just like my board game, Broadway novels (as opposed to non-fiction) are fun ways to keep fans connected to what we do all over the world.  It’s content marketing.  Because if people are reading a novel about Broadway instead of the latest John Grisham novel, guess what they might be more likely to do next Friday night?  (And the answer isn’t become a lawyer.)  Matt Christopher’s books got me wanting to play baseball.  D.C.P. will get people wanting to play Broadway.

D.C.P.’s first novel, Showbiz, is grabbing great reviews from critics and readers alike . . . and it just so happens to be this Sunday’s Giveaway!

How do you win a copy?

Showbiz has the making of a series, with a lead character named Scarlet Savoy who is an Assistant to a Producer looking to make her way to the top.

That means Scarlet needs more stories.

Rip me a story from Broadway headlines that would make a good story for Scarlet.  For example:  Cameron Macintosh threatening to not bring Miss Saigon to the states if Jonathan Pryce wasn’t allowed to reprise his role (Remember that?).

Comment away and good luck!
