54 weeks ago, I decided to write a new book on music marketing. I thought it would take about six weeks.
But I'm not really a writer, so...
Today, I finished the first draft. It's 47,257 words.
The first round of editing has already started and, from the initial talks I've already had with the editor, I have a long way to go. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel though.
Once things are a little more polished, I'll be sending out advance, draft copies to musicians in order to make sure that the concepts I'm talking about are clear and that I'm not leaving anything out. After I've made those changes, there will be another round of editing, the final manuscript will go to a layout person, we'll put a cover on it, and the final book will be released to the general public.
If all goes as planned, a finished version of the book should be here within the next two months.
If you're interested in receiving an advanced copy and willing to send me honest feedback, good and bad, about what works and what needs to be impoved, please contact me via Twitter.
