mybook.jpg I‘m Here, Now What?!
An Artist’s Survival Guide for NYC!”
  • Actors, dancers, singers, musicians, visual artists, writers, comedians come to New York to make it.

They have the talent but are usually ill-prepared to live their life in a city that is like no other.

This guide includes how to find an apartment, a roommate, odd jobs, cheap eats-clothing-classes, health insurance, ways to save money, economic travel tips and more.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Amy, aka The Resource Girl and I am your “virtual friend” and I will guide you through the challenges of everyday living while you are pursuing an artistic career.

    Dear Amy,

    I am a friend of Lily Medville’s. She told me that you got a book published (congrats) and to come to your website. Currently, I am living the artistNYC life and finishing up my book proposal. My question to you is: how did you get yours published and do you have any tips on navigating through the publsihing world? I do not have a literary agent and am looking to get one, and then have them deal with the publishing houses. I am a comic and it’s a funny book. Thanks, maggie (

    Hey Amy!!
    I met you last April at Project dance NYC!! And purchased your book there as well! It has been a BIG help in researching and planning my move to NYC! I have learned simple things like the cheapest water to buy, all the way to where to live and how to get a job that fits your lifestyle! It has been a great read and resource!!!
    You are such a helpful caring person! I can’t wait to get more advice out of you!!!
    Thanks, Ainlsey Sudds from Canada

    Thanks so much for sharing your book, Amy, and for your kind words. The book is super–but I just don’t see a major publisher publishing–it belongs solely in New York City. If there’s a local publisher, I’d try them. Keep up the good work! Best, Elizabeth

    Chris S. introduced us at that great magic show we attended a few Mondays ago.

    There’s some bad news here: I was able to see the “Leave a comment” element of your “Buy the Book” section — AND NOT THE REST!!!

    There is a glitch on your site. I figure you will be checking this section. When you do, let me know if you get the same glitch and problem and — most important! — repaired it.
