Casting and auditions information for any project for a whole year!


Want casting and auditions information for any film or television show? I would like to offer casting and auditions information for any film or television show for a whole year, for only a one-time donation of $99.00. You will also get any of my Actors Resource Guide eBooks that you want. My family has been going through an extremely difficult stretch for a while now, and we need help. It started when my business suffered a sudden loss of income due to changes in the Google search rankings. That hurt a lot of people with online businesses. I have been applying for additional full-time work for a long time, and have had very little success, however I continue to apply for jobs every day. I also had a huge setback after falling from a ladder and suffering rib injuries. We have daughters who are 8 years old and almost 6 years old. I am trying as hard as possible to be a good provider, and have had to forget about pride and post publicly about my situation and ask for help. It is extremely difficult and humiliating, especially with hateful people posting untrue horrible things about me, and even my family. But I have to do anything I can to stay afloat until I recover my income and obtain a solid steady second job. If anyone wants to take me up on this offer, please use Square Cash - https://cash.me. My email address to send your payment through Square Cash is alan.baltes@gmail.com and my Square Cash username is $AlanBaltes and we will get it instantly. You use a debit card, and I have been using Square Cash as a payment method for my Actors Resource Guide eBooks for a while. Please make sure to put your email address in the "For" box when sending. You can also send by Western Union or Walmart-to-Walmart Money Transfer. Email me at alan.baltes@gmail.com if you want to send using either of those. God bless you for helping, and I will pay-it-forward as soon as I possibly can.
