Hello! Well, here we are – six years old today.
It certainly doesn’t seem like six years ago that I took a deep breath, and nervously sent my first ever blog post out into the world. But it was. And since then, here at HowToWinGameShows.com, there have been almost 300 blog posts, 28 interviews, more than 400 tweets, 1 guest blogger and one eBook which combines some of the site’s best content – and a lot of new, just-for-the-eBook content – into one volume.
And there’s plenty more to come! In fact, today I’d like to make a VERY SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT. May I have a drum roll please?
Thanks very much, Invisible Cartoon Drummer.
Today I’m announcing a second How To Win Game Shows eBook!
It’ll be a sort of mini-memoir: a compilation of all my behind-the-scenes adventures in the game show industry. In one capacity or another, I’ve worked on some 16 game shows over the years, and I’ve got stories from all of them. There’s also ‘the ones that got away’; those gigs that I nearly got… but didn’t. In the book, I’ll also go into detail about all those times, when I came so close and yet so far…
So, if you’re a game show aficionado (and I’m assuming you are, or you wouldn’t be here) this will be a unique and personal glimpse behind the scenes into what really goes in to making some of the shows we love so much.
… and, in true How To Win Game Shows style, a few tips, hints and strategies just might find their way in there as well.
The book’s coming together, and I’m looking at a release date some time in the second half of the year, after I get Being Basil – and a couple of other creative projects – finished and out into the world. Of course, I’ll keep you updated on the progress of the new book here, and on Twitter and Facebook, but if you’d like a more personal reminder when the time draws near, please do consider joining the specific email list that I’ve set up for the eBook side of things, by emailing me at author@TheStephenHall.com.
As yet, I don’t have a title for this book… and I thought I might consult you about that.
What do YOU think would make a good title for a book about my various behind-the-scenes adventures as game show question writer, game show adjudicator, game show producer and would-be game show host?
