I’ll be back to blogging regularly tomorrow — I’m in the last stages of completing a draft of my novel to send to the publishers. The 80/20 rule has really applied here — 80% of the time I’ve spent on this book has been on less than 10,000 words of additions, but it’s practically done. No doubt there’ll be more changes to make, but I’m in the home stretch.
Anyway, 33 1/3 have announced an open call for submissions for their series of music books, and I’m considering sending in a proposal. Only considering, because I have plenty of books to write already, and I’m trying to move away from music writing once California Dreaming and Beach Boys 3 are done — and because I could make more money per book sold by self-publishing than by going through them. But on the other hand, they have a brand name and publicity that might help. So I’m thinking about it.
So the question is — if I were to write a short (30,000 word) book on one album, what album would you want to see me write about?
