How Clint Eastwood, Darcy Donavan, Judyth Piazza and others did it…
VonChase Publishing Company announces the release of Dream Reachers, a book of celebrity and other interviews that Hollywood and the world has been eagerly anticipating.
Dream Reachers is a magical mix of success stories and interviews with people who have dared to stretch to reach for their dreams. From living legends to legends-in-the-making, the subjects of this book let their imaginations soar.
In this book, author Betty Dravis shares her experiences as a young journalist when screen idols, like Clint Eastwood, Jane Russell, Tanya Tucker and others walked right out of the limelight and into her life…for brief, memorable moments.
In addition to writing three other novels, Dravis is an award-winning journalist and former talk show host.
Co-author Chase Von, a celebrity interviewer and poet, has two other published books. In Dream Reachers he shares his current interviews with high achievers in the arts: actors, writers, painters, photographers, musicians, singers and dancers: Shawn Richardz, Jason Seitz, Dozie and Aberjhani, to name a few. As these achievers tell you in their own words why they keep stretching to reach their dreams, they enchant the readers with their determination, inspiring them to DREAM BIG.
With thirty-seven compelling stories and interviews, highlighted by captivating photographs, this literary work casts new light on what it takes to be a Dream Reacher. These are stories of how even disasters can turn into dreams, challenges into opportunities, with the right attitude of perseverance and determination. Whether you dream of walking the red carpet in Hollywood, taking the Big Apple by storm, having a cottage with a white picket fence––or all of those pleasures––this book will inspire you to “stretch” to make your dreams come true.
Dream Reachers can be purchased from Amazon.com, BN.com and other Internet booksellers or ordered from your local bookstore. To learn more about this book, visit the following website: http://bettydravis.com
