Fundraising: Self-Publishing

Think you need a big publisher before you start pushing your book out in the world? Are you opposed to self-publication because you think it's all about vanity?

Think again.  
Gazzo is recognized as one of the world's foremost street entertainers and magicians. For over 25 years he has been performing his unique style of magic throughout the world. From the streets of Boston, USA and London, England to Cruise Ships and Las Vegas, Gazzo is held in high esteem by his fellow professionals and audiences alike.

Much of Gazzo's show uses comedy and humour as a presentation tool. He has been asked many times to share the lines and jokes that make his work both memorable and successful.

Gazzo's Read Between the Lines is a collection of over 500 one liners that can be used for most situations that you will encounter performing at any venue. This is a collection of Gazzo's one liners as well as many from various other artists. Real performers will see the keen value in this collection. A single line from the book used at the right time will more than pay for the price of the book.

Gazzo copies them on a copy machine. The book has a simple card stock cover with two staples in the middle and consists of about 36 pages. The retail price for the book is $40. You won’t find the book at Barnes and Noble, but the book is available on hundreds of sites on the internet and most performers I know have a copy.  I bought the book because the knowledge is invaluable. I paid for the knowledge, not the package.

The magician, Randy Charach, sells an e-book called “Secrets of a Millionaire Magician,” for $67. How many does he sell? Every magician friend I know owns one and they bought them when the price was over three times that amount.
