"#SOBLESSED" is described as the "essential 'how-to' guide that explains it all: from choosing the right college to making your Broadway debut to surviving on Unemployment — while teaching you how to behave on social media along the way! — this book will aid you in your quest to find what it means to be #SOBLESSED."
"#SOBLESSED" is the debut novel by Annoying Actor Friend (@Actor_Friend), a popular Twitter account — which remains anonymous — that gained notoriety within the Broadway community by spoofing annoying actor behavior on social media. The book became the Amazon #1 Best-Selling Theatre book on its first day of release.
"I wrote '#SOBLESSED' because I wanted to compile what I believe to be an honest representation of the ups and downs of an actor in this business, while still keeping with the voice of the character," explained Annoying Actor Friend — who created the Twitter account in response to industry friends who over share on social media platforms — to Playbill.com. "The opinions within do not always reflect what I personally believe, but that of a general quality I have observed from years of being surrounded by Broadway actors.
The book is available on Amazon Kindle as well as the free Kindle app on all smartphones or tablets.
