I have a web site where you can find out about the book, read a free sample, as well as order copies through www.iUniverse.com, www.amazon.com, or through me directly paying with paypal.
Just go to www.songwritingforgeniuses.com
Or, you can also go to www.GeneBurnett.com and click on the book's cover on
the home page.
Or, you can also search the book's title or my name on www.amazon.com In case you're wondering, I make more money (and you get the book faster) if you order it directly from me.
"Songwriting for Geniuses" is a short book of 25 tips to help aspiring songwriters write better, more satisfying songs. It's not about writing hits or improving the commercial quality of your songs. It's not about technical tricks or music theory. It's focused more on helping what I call your inner "genius" write songs that accurately convey your thoughts and feelings in a satisfying way.
I'm now working on getting my much longer book about T'ai-Chi through the same process. The songwriting book, being much shorter, was sort of my trial run. I think I understand the process better now and my T'ai-Chi book will go more smoothly.
Personally, I'd love to give you all free copies but this thing cost a bit to set up and until (and if!) it breaks even, I just can't afford to give any away.
I appreciate your support and please feel free to forward this to anyone you think might be interested in my book. And please consider giving a Holiday copy to any aspiring songwriters you may know...
