Cover price: $12.95

Inspiration for Songwriters: Tips and Tricks to Unlocking the Muse is not your typical book about songwriting. It does not explain how to write, publish, pitch, promote or record your next song. There are already dozens of other songwriting books covering those subjects. What Inspiration For Songwriters provides is something few other songwriting books offer. And in our humble opinion, it does it much better than the few similar titles we could find. It provides thousands of inspirational ideas that could very well be the seeds to your next song! All in all, Inspiration for Songwriters includes over 2000 titles, tips, tricks and other ideas that will inspire you to create song after song.

REVIEWS AND COMMENTS: Inspiration for Songwriters

“This book is packed with innovative jet fuel that will set your mind soaring into the creative stratosphere. There are hundreds of imaginative ideas here to unlock the imagination. If you've always wanted to write songs and can't find at least one tip worth the price of the book, perhaps you should consider another pursuit -- like collecting Popsicle sticks or licking envelopes.”

--Bob Lind, singer/songwriter (Elusive Butterfly, Mister Zero)

“I hadn't flipped through more than a few pages, just reading random bits and pieces, before I had more ideas for new songs than I could shake a stick at. In the hierarchy of books, this one clearly falls into the category of those that accomplish what they set out to do. And that is a substantial achievement.”

--Ed Teja (The Muse's Muse)

“Wow, what a great idea for a book. You don't just read it once and put it away, you go back to it again and again whenever you need some new ideas or a 'jump-start'/ This is right there in my music library next to Mel Bay's Deluxe Encyclopedia of Guitar Chords”

--C. Buckles, Singer/Songwriter (BossaNovaNights)
