Welcome to the last week-end of September! I hope you have some fun plans for the week-end!
A few months ago, it was revealed that Clay Aiken wrote the introduction to a book. Titled Starry – Eyed: 16 Stories That Steal The Spotlight, the book was written by Ted Michael and Josh Pultz.
Amazon.com wrote the following about the book:
No light is as unforgiving as the spotlight, but to be in it while being a teenager is just plain brutal. This collection of fictional short stories highlight the struggles, hopes, failures, and triumphs of young aspiring singers, dancers, actors, actresses, and performers. While these characters may feel out of place during their everyday lives, they are able to find a home onstage and in rehearsals. Woven throughout the anthology are personal anecdotes from several of today’s most celebrated performers of stage, screen, and television.
Whether hilarious or romantic or devastating or suspenseful, these diverse coming-of-age stories are perfect for anyone who is reaching for the stars.
The 400 page paperback book is scheduled to be released on October 8, 2013. The book already has a short review. From Kirkus Reviews:
Under the hubbub of the theater world are themes that deal with common teenage issues such as insecurity, jealousy, the fear of coming out and young love. Definitely worthy of applause. —
The following is Clay’s introduction to the book:
The book is available at Amazon and other bookstores. I haven’t read it yet, but it sounds like a good book for young people who are passionate about the arts and entertainment field.
There was a small Clay Aiken mention on Fox Sports News on Friday. Check out the headline on their FaceBook page and be sure to watch the YouTube. Clay shows up in the first minute.
Somehow, I feel we can’t have a Clay Aiken blog without at least one picture of Clay.
