It's all a part of a new campaign that will take Marshall to a higher level as he begins to promote his time machine research and the ongoing competition between he and Dr. Ronald Mallet to build the first time machine. Recently, promotional traffic has increased for Mallett, most notably on twitter where every new interview that he gives to the media is aggressively promoted. Last week, the Lavin Agency tweeted, "Is time travel possible? Not now. But scientist Ronald Mallett has been working on it for the better part of his career". The Lavin Agency is a speakers bureau that represents Mallett, however, according to Mallett's web site, he has yet to have a booking for 2013 so far. Marshall has an entire tour in the works with bookings for the Cambridge Science Festival, the All-Con sci-fi convention, the World Steampunk Fair and more in negotiation. It is projected that he will have more than 30 dates booked, coast to coast before summer, which is more than what Mallett has ever done in any year since he began listing them.
"Back in 2007 I approached Lavin myself", Marshall stated, "because Mallett suggested that I do so, but I was turned down precisely because they don't pursue bookings for you, they just sit back and let people call them, and that's not what I wanted. I certainly wouldn't sign with Lavin now, even if they begged me."
While his tour promo is a fairly straight ahead piece, opening with professional endorsements, his celebrity video is filled with surprises, including cameo appearances of personalities from science, radio, and rock 'n' roll.
