Subject: Former Bad Boy Makes Good with New Book/Reality Show
(April 17-18, 2009) ---He was known for years as part of the Bad Boy Recording family under Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, but now Mark Curry is independent and expanding his brand as an author as well as a recording artist.
Earlier in 2009 Mark released his book DANCING WITH THE DEVIL (How Puff Burned The Bad Boys of Hip Hop). The book chronicles his experiences as an artist and what ultimately caused him to leave the record label that brought him national recognition. In just a short time it has caused both music lovers and avid readers to burn up the pages.
On Saturday, April 18, 2009 Curry will be at the Community Book Center (2523 Bayou Road) in New Orleans, LA at a new time: 3-5p.m. signing his book and meeting fans as well.
This event is sponsored by New Mark Books, Shadow Play Entertainment, Conversations Book Club, Book Bullies and Vera Warren of Community Book Center.
While he is in New Orleans, Mark Curry will also be serving as a guest judge during the taping of America's first reality show, The Write Stuff, a project looking for the next big thing in publishing. "We're excited to be working with Curry and his team," says The Write Stuff Executive Producer Cyrus A. Webb, 33. "He is a recognizable name and face that has made his mark in the entertainment industry and has released a book that is bringing a new audience to reading."
When talking about Curry's role on the show, Webb adds this: "I don't want to give away too much, but Mark Curry will be a guest judge on at least five of the fourteen shows we will be shooting. He will also be talking with the cast about the trappings of success and how they can remain true to themselves while pursuing their dreams." Webb also revealed that some of the cast members will be participating in a booksigning for Mark Curry to be held in New Orleans.
With such a busy schedule, why did Curry decide to join The Write Stuff? He answers this way: "No matter what career you choose, even in show business, reading is fundamental to your success. I don't know where we would be without writers and the written word, but shows like The Write Stuff definitely prove that these two literary components are something we can't live without. I am glad to not only endorse the historic reality show but honored to be a part of it as well."
