Update #1

DAY ONE! Phew!

Comment

Thank you so much for showing up on DAY ONE of our campaign for CARRIE PILBY!  We're off to a great start.  It took us a month to put this together actually - you would think this an easy task, but NO!  

And hey, if you have any ideas for REWARDS you would like to see us add, please let us know.  We also welcome any/all VIDEOS like the one below.  If you are already a fan of the book and would like to put your thoughts on tape, we would LOVE to post your video here.  You can send the movie file to:  carriepilby@braveartfilms.com.

We will leave you with this video from Caren Lissner (author of Carrie Pilby) for today.  It's short - but so very Carrie in NYC.  Thanks Caren!  We're up and running!  Fingers crossed!!!
