In a couple weeks, I head to San Diego for Comic-Con 2012! I’ll be doing book signings, meeting the press, and going on a week long press tour that culminates in a signing in Manhattan Beach’s Barnes & Noble which is sort of fitting because that’s where Christian used to live, so it truly brings my Bale journey full circle.
We’ve been thrilled that the book has been doing really well – consistently in Amazon’s Top 100 Biographies – and with Dark Knight Rises opening July 20, the book will probably get even more attention as people look for information on the movie’s lead actor. I’ve been asked whether I’ll be dressing up as Alfred or…. Bane at Comic-Con! No comment.:) But I do want to thank the readers who’ve taken time to check out the book and to ask some really interesting questions about Fame, Celebrity, and all things Hollywood. It’s always great to see that the book has inspired some intelligent discussion.
Last week, I did a very cool interview with The Patrick Phillips show. It was cool on many levels – I’ve done a ton of radio interviews, but none in-studio, so the sound quality is awesome, and I was channeling my inner NPR-SNL-spoof.Check out the classic Betty White Muffin SNL skit below! And the host was very insightful as he had actually taken the time to read the book and come up with his own opinions about the book. Check out the interview here:
So if you’re headed to Comic-Con, come by the Smartpop Books booth and say, Hello! I’m hoping that the trusty iPhone will help me document the journey!
