I created the Get Clever About e-books to help actors plan and prepare for success, methodically. As an actress, I believe that the best way to achieve our dreams is by being practical. All the books in the series are short (29,000 words at most) and get to the core of the subject matter quickly. The goal is to help readers approach the industry effectively and productively. The first series is about acting in Los Angeles as a Canadian. The second series is about working in the voice over industry. -Lili Wexu, Author.
