I have my last show that I have booked for May tomorrow. I have not yet had any success coming out of shows with new bookings. I've read many ideas here and I am going to try them i.e. a gift for booking a show that day! I am curious to know how close in can I book a show, and how can I help the potential host feel comfortable that she'll have a chance to get the invites out and R.S.V.P.'s in?
