Over the weekend I took part in a panel discussion at the Instock Self Publishing Conference.  If you remember, I actually write books too.  The discussion was about branding yourself, which as you can tell by now, might be the only thing I’m good at in life.  Below are a few clips of some of my demented insights about the world of self publishing.

I recently took on a PR group because I eventually wanna do a Broke-Ass Stuart TV show (how cool would that be?) and somebody said this would be a step in the right direction.  They’re called Industry 415 and since I came to the conference unprepared (as usual) Lucciano (publicist) improvised and recorded the clips on a regular point and click digital camera.  Sorry for the quality, it’s my fault for not giving Lucciano the heads up.

But on a similar note I’ve included his contact info below in case you’re interested in reaching out to yours truly for some press opportunities.  I’m gonna be the MC for the Guardian’s “Best of the Bay Party” and I’m available for birthdays, weddings and bar mitzvahs too 🙂

Here are the videos and Lucciano’s Contact:
