We decided to go the independent route when we were told by the publishing industry: 'Cancer sells. Heart doesn't.' As requested by so many, we have produced a print version of Robby's medical memoir I'm Not Dead... Yet! Here's where you can get it: https://www.createspace.com/3926926 This is our own book page at Create Space. (Create Space is a terrific place for independent authors to sell their books.) This paperback version of I'm Not Dead... Yet! is 6x9 and has a beautiful color cover with an all black and white interior. None of the bells and whistles of the multimedia version for the iPad, (or even the Kindle Fire or Color Nook or Google Nexus7), but if you purchase the physical book and write us here, we will send you links to the prologue and epilogue read by Robby and all of the calming slide shows he created by for the book. The print version is also available here on Amazon.

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."
