Oh, man, is this gonna be awesome! THIS TOUR IS SO GAY is a delightful romp around this fine world of ours. I'll entertain you with a live storytelling show about love and going crazy and getting better, throw things at you, sign some books near you (particularly my LGBTQ-themed YA novel GREAT, a Gatsby-inspired tale of love and lust!), and basically bring the circus to town. Whenever possible, I'll feature a storyteller/performer from your town (maybe it's YOU!)
I'll crash on couches or in your finest local motels. I'll eat cheap delicacies from your local food establishments. And if you donate $400, I'll take you on a friend date to your favorite restaurant near a scheduled show! (There are other prizes, but mostly I'm hoping to take a lot of people to Cheesecake Factory.)
If I raise $15,000, I plan to hit these cities:
San Francisco, CA
New Orleans, LA
Los Angeles, CA
New York, NY
and the more I raise, the more cities I can visit!
Let's get together and have some laughs and chortles. And also eat cheesecake. Maybe.
Risks and challenges
It's important to know that I'm going to spread out the tour dates across 2014 and 2015 so that I can do my regular work too (writing a TV pilot for the USA network; writing my third and fourth books; walking my puppy). So it won't be all in one shot. I'll do it around my work schedule.
I'll need help from local folks to set up events in each town.
Oh, and if a show happens to be FREE and we're doing a pass-the-bucket donations kinda thing for the kids AND you've donated to the Kickstarter at a level where you get free tickets, you and I will figure out a suitable substitute for the free tickets prize. Like maybe we go for ice cream or something fun.
And sadly, you might not have a Cheesecake Factory in your town, in which case we'll just have to go somewhere else.
Also, if the publishing company suddenly shuts down or decides I suck or something, I can't dedicate my book to you. So you are taking that risk! Maybe a unicorn could steal the company and bring it to Never Never Land. ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!
*Extra special top secret prize* Donate 20K and you and I will decide on a tattoo and then I will get the tattoo. ;)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
