Orlando Delbert Concludes Crowdfunding Campaign for "Pollyanna’s Tear Soaked Battlefields of Hollywood: A Survival Guide Against the Cynicism and the Hypocritical"
Los Angeles, CA, January 25, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- OTK Media Group, Inc. and Emmy® Award winner Orlando Delbert have successfully completed the advance sales platform on Indiegogo for “Pollyanna’s Tear Soaked Battlefields of Hollywood: A Survival Guide Against the Cynicism and the Hypocritical.”
“As someone who understands the importance of brand-building, I knew we needed to have a way to maximize our impact,” said Delbert. “Together with the family at OTK Media Group, the decision was made to look at funding and public relations options early on. Crowdfunding through Indiegogo.com was the logical platform choice to create a simple and effective awareness campaign. The company’s approach to crowdfunding is about community, which I find engaging. Indiegogo.com offers simple to use social media tools to drive traffic and build the brand, which also helped give the project a global reach. This was an essential goal.”
“We have had a very positive response by readers in and out of Hollywood,” said Delbert. “Looking at the analytics behind the crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com proves that the sufficient amount of support has already created a buzz. Pollyanna’ has a small army of supporters behind it. Without them, this book would not have come into fruition. This platform has already made the book more accessible to a world market, which we are confident will help with pre-sales on Amazon.com.”
“Pollyanna’s Tear Soaked Battlefields of Hollywood: A Survival Guide Against the Cynicism and the Hypocritical,” is a true-to-life preparatory tale of what to expect when attempting to make it in Hollywood.

“I only wish I had this when I went to LA my first time all those years ago. Honest, poignant and wholly true. The 'real' Good, Bad and the Ugly - The L.A. Manual.”

“It automatically gets you hooked. (A) book that will engage a wide audience from students eager to jump into it -- to the people who have been there and done that -- and everyone in between.” - Founder and Artistic Director of ‘Circ X’ Diana Lozano.
“This universal book isn’t just for Hollywood; it can be used across the board for your personal life.” - Assistant Director Tharian “Ty” Dunn.
“He doesn’t pull any punches (nor should he) when it comes to the ‘source material’ of life in the Hollywood trenches. His total honesty is refreshing in a sea of many sharks that populate the Hollywood landscape with their half-truths and lies just to get what they want out of the unsuspecting neophyte.” - Film Director and Producer Wendell Hubbard.
