I love books and have a bunch related to the music industry (booking, touring, etc.), the entrepreneur spirit and marketing. The following awesome books have been literally collection dust in my house, so I've decided to start a little SCRS lending library. Here is how it will work. The books will be at SCRS, if you'd like one, just drop in and give whoever is working your name/number/email and a sincere promise to return the book within 6 months. Then go read.
Books Available so Far:
- The Indie Bible (11th Edition) - 4200 publications to submit your CD to for review, 3500 radio stations.
- Tour Smart - first real book about the business of touring
- The Plain and Simple Guide to Music Publishing - What you need to know about protecting, and profiting from, music copyrights
- Crush It! - Cash In on Your Passion
- Anything You Want - 40 Lessons for a new kind of entrepreneur
- Do the Work! - A Child has no trouble believing the unbelievable, nor does the genius or the madman. It's only you and I, with our big brains and our tiny hearts, who doubt and overthink and hesitate.
If you also have books collecting dust that you think other musicians could benefit from. Feel free to bring them by and I'll add them into the lending mix.
