Dear totally awesome followers of this blog,
First off, can I just take out my virtual hanky for a second and wipe some virtual happy tears? Thank you ALL for the support you've given me both on this blog and lately with the announcement of my behind-the-scenes memoir. It is astonishing how fricking cool all of you are. I love your enthusiasm, and passion for the arts, and for humor, and for voicing your opinions.
I spearheaded my memoir project because I wanted to stay connected to all of you, and deliver a personal story that might just be worthwhile enough for you to read. The project represents hours upon hours of work -- the culmination of many dreams of mine, each merging into one, lasting, exuberant expression of who I am. And I am so grateful that you've leaned in to listen. Now, more than ever, I have such a clear sense of who my audience is: the curious, inquisitive, hungry, appreciators of theater, of humor, and of creativity. From little kids who dream big to grown-up kids who never stopped, I say to you all, "HELLO! AND THANKS!"
So, catch phrases and taglines aside, if you asked me, "Fel! What is this book really about?" I would say: it's about you guys.
Okay. Hanky going away.
Also, hankies are unsanitary, so next time I am going to use a tissue.
In any event, I am pleased to announce that soon -- as soon as this very night! (...or tomorrow, if I can't get my shiz together) -- I'm going to disclose my memoir's official title, along with more info on where you can find (regularly updated!) excerpts and other little goodies.
In the meantime, if you haven't joined my outrageously cool mailing list, be sure to do so here!
P.S. Yesterday, March 30, marked the one-year anniversary of my Elphaba debut!
