Hey all! Didn’t expect to see three entries in two days from me, did you? Well, I can’t promise that’ll be the norm from here on in, but this year I’m planning on being more consistent with my blogging. Starting today, you should be seeing an entry from me by each Thursday of the month, talking about my favorite subject: music.
I’ll be hitting on things such as new and current releases and reissues, as well as hitting on older albums and bands I’d like to talk about. I’d also like to expand on the genres too, as a change of pace. I don’t have too many concrete plans for this other than reviews, so I’m as curious as you are to see where this leads.
Also, in other news…
I’m proud to announce that I have not one but two self-published projects I’m planning on releasing into the world sometime this year as well! I’m thinking epub at this point, although print could be involved, depending on which self-publishing company I end up working with to produce and release it. These are two projects I’ve been working on over the last few years; one is complete and the other is about three-quarters of the way done.
The first will be a book version of Blogging the Beatles, the series I started here a while back, in which I listened and talked about the Beatles’ discography in chronological release order. I had so much fun writing it, and learned so much musically as I studied the songs, that I felt it would be perfect for an ebook. I’ll be revising it and adding new items as I do so, and hope to have this one out at least by midyear.
The second will be Walk in Silence itself. This one’s the biggie. I’m about three quarters of the way done on the more personal side of the story, with revision number two to add in more about the music. This one may roll into 2016 if other issues pop up, but the aim is to get it out into the wild by autumn 2015.
Of course, releasing books about popular music could be tricky considering the rights involved, but since I’m not directly quoting the music but only commenting on it, I think I should be okay. These are both books focusing on my love of music, in particular about a band and a genre that inspired me and shaped who I am.
See y’all on the flip side, kids!
