Smiling with BookHi!

My name is Sharon Glassman.

I’m an author, a musician, a stage performer and journalist.

In my new show, I perform live chapters and songs from my novel-with-songs.

The name of my novel-with-songs is BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN.

My show is called BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN LIVE! (Promo video).

Here’s a little Q&A…

It’s the funnest hour a person could have. I can’t wait to hear what happens next!
—Sherri Prince, Busy Book Lover

What’s the plot of BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN LIVE!?

BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN tells a charming, quirky love story. Its heroes are sparkling, original characters.

HOBOKEN’s plot is fueled by a classic math proof. Stylistically? It’s Marian Keyes-y meets THE PRINCESS BRIDE and BARON IN THE TREES.

HOBOKEN’s songs create a signature, fun soundtrack for the plot. They range from jazz and cabaret to country/bluegrass and swing.

BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN is a fun time and a great way to bring fresh programming to the library. Our patrons enjoy it immensely.
—Stephanie Myers, Librarian.

Will you perform for my group?

Yes! HOBOKEN is original, charming entertainment for food-and-beverage fueled-events, parties, employee gatherings, classroom events, birthday parties, showers and more.

I have performed my shows in private living rooms, corporate boardrooms, post office lobbies, physics labs, church basements and printing shops nationwide.

Do you offer related educational/cultural talks and workshops?

Yes! Here are some of my HOBOKEN-relevant topics:

“Introvert Heroes” – Meet the hidden stars of classic myths and blockbusters.

“Cupid, Psyche & Sinatra” – Uncovered: the surprising connections between classic and modern myths.

“The story-song connection” – Discover how music amplifies the message, from the Great American Songbook to HOBOKEN.

“Communicating with humor” – Why the funny-bone is the quickest way to the heart – and brain.

“So creative, charming, funny, unpredictable, and smart. I LOVED it!!!—Rockin’ Robin, Entertainment Producer

Why did you write a novel with songs?

Because music was a major character in the plot. And listening to the songs adds an extra dimension of connection. The BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN theme song and the song UH-HUH are songwriting contest winners.
