With all that’s been going on, I forgot to tell you that John Braheny has an article in the new edition of Songwriter’s Market 2007 that just came out.
You’ve seen Writer’s Digest books in the stores … Writer’s Market, Poet’s Market, Novel and Short Stories Writer’s Market, Photographer’s Market, etc., as well as their excellent magazines.
John has written chapters/articles for them before. This new one is called Getting Ready to Face the Industry, including these sub-topics:
Ethics in the Biz
Dealing with Rejection
Marketing Your Lyrics
Organize Your Song Shopping
Setting Up Your Database
Submission Software Packages
Also, in the back of this book there’s a world of resources including some listed by geographic locations. Very handy!
