Apple handpicked Robby Benson's multimedia cutting edge effort I'm Not Dead... Yet! for center stage on the "Made with iBooks Author" page where they state: "Made with iBooks Author, these books bring ideas and stories to life. Our handpicked collection features titles filled with 3D images, video, and interactive diagrams, galleries, maps, and more. To read Multi-Touch books, an iPad with the latest version of the free iBooks app is required." Apple has also placed Benson's book I'm Not Dead... Yet! in their "new in non fiction" category this week! This means many more people will find out the book exists when they open up their search in the iBookstore -- and outreach to patients of all kinds and their loved ones is the reason Robby wrote the book. I'm Not Dead... Yet! was conceived by Robby with all the media included for the iPad and originally created in Apple's Pages application. When Apple's new iAuthor was released, he quickly shifted gears and produced I'm Not Dead... Yet! using iAuthor, one of the simplest and most beautiful ways to create what we at Valor Editions believe is the future of books. Here's the screenshot from the Made with iBooks Author page: Here's the screen shot from the front page of the iBookstore below:
Terrific interview of Robby from Broadway World by Pat Cersaro. Here's an exerpt - click on Broadway World link read entire career spanning piece: "Today we are talking to a star of many notable films and television shows who initially surprised many viewers with his commanding presence as the voice of the Beast in Disney’s classic animated film BEAUTY & THE BEAST, now back in theaters for its twentieth anniversary (in 3D) - the one and only Robby Benson. In addition to telling us all about his impressions of and experiences working on BEAUTY & THE BEAST and what he thinks of the new 3D movie experience, he also shares his affection for co-stars Angela Lansbury and Paige O’Hara - both having been previous InDepth InterView participants, as well - and what the storied legacy of the film means to him. Also, Benson discusses his talented family, including his rock star wife, Karla DeVito, and their daughter, a star-on-the-rise in her own right, Lyric (her Benson-produced debut album, LYRIC’S LOVE LIGHT REVOLUTION, is available here) and details the many hats he wears as an actor, director, producer, author, singer and recording artist."

The musical collaboration of Lyric and Robby Benson, LYRIC’S LOVE LIGHT REVOLUTION brings the poetry of cosmic consciousness to Earth with the power of modern rock — flaming guitar, eco-psychedelic hip-pop, atmospheric electronica, and a fat bottom. Play it loud, bring your air guitar, and plan on singing along. Dance if you want to.
IMDB trivia says: "Robby Benson has worked in television or on a movie every year of his life from 1971-2004." So when Robby says, "I have never had more fun working in front of or behind the camera than with Peter and Leslie Tolan" -- that's saying something! Brave New World did not make it onto NBC's fall 2011 schedule -- but a great time was had by all!
