The Unstarving Musician Book–Coming Soon!
The update to my writing project, the working title of which is The Unstarving Musician’s Guide to Getting Paid Gigs, is that I’m starting the third draft. You can read first and second draft musings on my blog. One of my near term goals is to have this puppy published, and while I’ve not yet committed myself to a publishing deadline, I am in the process of researching copy editing and self-publishing resources. Writing my first book has been an interesting journey. For one thing, it took me months to get off my arse and start writing. I feel like the book is crap in it’s current state, and at times the project leaves me feeling a bit overwhelmed. Apparently this is normal and common for first-time authors. Fortunately, I have a great support network. It’s gonna be good reading. I promise.
This coming week is it for me in the Bay Area, and I get to round it off with some truly great friends. Wednesday the 20th, Generation Wrecks returns to Murphy’s Law in Downtown Sunnyvale. Sunday the 24th, I have the honor of performing with Paul Kent of Houserockers, along with a host of other great musicians at the Los Gatos Music in the Park All Stars show. It’s been quite a ride, and while I’m looking forward to these shows, it’s all gonna be a bitter sweet experience. And then it’s on to the next chapter.
