‘How To Win Game Shows’ the eBook: UPDATE!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the scheduled launch day for How To Win Game Shows  – the eBook! 

Only thing is, it’s not quite ready yet.


All the content is done, but I’m afraid I’ve underestimated the time that editing, proofreading and getting an eStore up and running would take. So, I know I did say that it’d be ready to go by today, but if you can bear with me for one more week, I’d really appreciate it. That makes the revised launch date Sunday September 20th. I’d like to thank you so much for your patience and understanding. As a little taste of what it’ll look like, here’s the eBook’s cover:

In the meantime, it’ll be business as usual here at the blog, with my next weekly post due on Tuesday. That will chronicle the first part of my Australia’s Brainiest Quizmaster journey – this was the show in early 2006 that pitted Who Wants To Be A Millionaire winners against Sale of the Century and Temptation winners, in a battle to win the $20,000 for charity, and the title of ‘Australia’s Brainiest Quizmaster’. I did manage to win it, but it certainly wasn’t all smooth sailing. The story of how I accomplished it begins right here on Tuesday, and hopefully there’ll be some tips and hints in there that will be helpful to you, as you learn from my mistakes.

Until then, thank you so much for your patience, and remember, you can still get a FREE SNEAK PREVIEW BONUS CHAPTER of the eBook by signing up to the How To Win Game Shows mailing list, by using the handy (if slightly squashed) email sign up box to the right! ——————————————————————————————————->

Game show news update 6

Twenty fourteenHello everyone. Firstly, sorry to take so long between posts, but some very sad personal business has been taking a huge amount of my time and energy over the last few weeks.

But the world continues to turn, life goes on, and our mission here at www.howtowingameshows.com remains the same as ever; to bring you as much information – and as many tips and hints as possible – to help you in your quest to join the ranks of game show winners, wherever you may be!

So let’s begin this year with one of our occasional Game Show News round-ups…

First up, this news that Simon Cowell (of Pop Idol fame) is set to launch a new UK family-based game show, entitled Keep It In The Family. It’s said to be a rebooted version of the classic 70s game show The Generation Game, which ran from 1971 – 1982, and from 1990 – 2002. But perhaps the most interesting thing about the article is that it contains a youtube clip of Simon Cowell’s TV debut as a Sale of the Century contestant in 1990! Well worth a look.

A new NBC reality show to choose the next manager of NHL team The Buffalo Sabres? Quite a niche market, I would have thought. How many people will be putting their hands up to be a contestant on that one? Make sure you read this article right through to the end. If you read it at all.

The way of the future? Earlier this month, UK telecom BT staged a livestream game show on Twitter, encouraging entrants to tweet and and play the Price Is Right-style game in real time. An interesting, “anyone-can-play” idea, which we may be seeing more of in the future. Although it’s not an actual game show, taking part in one of these certainly couldn’t hurt your game show skills…

And finally, here’s an interview with a serial game show contestant auditioner, whose dream is to one day make it into the Big Brother house. He hasn’t had a huge amount of success so far, but I did like his tip about befriending former Big Brother housemates on Facebook, and following them for any tips that they may have!

Well, that’s about it for this brief Game Show News round-up, but in the coming weeks we’ll have more game show winner interviews, and I’ll take you through exactly what happens after you win big on a game show (that part often seems to get left out of the story for some reason).

There’s all that, and heaps more in store for 2014, so remember to check back in regularly to www.howtowingameshows.com!
