Writing Hit Country Song Lyrics -- Now in Print!

I got a present from the USPS today. No, it wasn't a Victoria's Secret catalog. It was a box of books. More specifically, the paperback version of my songwriting booklet.

Writing Hit Country Song Lyrics frequently hits the songwriting besteller lists on Amazon, but I realized a lot of people still don't have an ereader, OR they want a paper version to keep as a handy reference. Others just want to stroke the cover and chant my name.

Whatever your reason, rejoice! The book is available in this wonderful little form-factor known as a paperback!

Yes, I have a maniacal look on my face. That's because I'm building an publishing EMPIRE!!!!!!!

The ebook is available from all the usual suspects. Click here for a clickable list of places to buy it.

The paper book (shown above) is available from Amazon. Get it before the world runs out of paper.

Afterlife Wins Ebook Cover Design Award

Wow! This is such great news and a wonderful acknowledgment for Melvin De Voor, the brilliant artist who designed the covers for Undermountain and Afterlife. awarded Afterlife the eBook Cover Design Award for July in the fiction category.

The guest judge for July was Tamara Deaver, owner of TLC Graphics in Austin, TX. This is what they she to say:

"This month’s winner is “Afterlife.” It’s simply stunning, full of depth, great use of typography, and very unique. The use of color, type, texture, and imagery are all very well done. The design would work well if this were a series, too."

 I  particularly want to thank Joel Friedlander for creating this award to recognize great design.
