My upcoming book Selling Creative Sound is coming along quite nicely.
What’s it about? Well, two things, really:
- How to assemble a powerful sound effects or music collection using the pinnacle of your craft.
- How to share it in the best Web shops on the Internet.
It contains advice, ideas, and tricks I’ve discovered from the fifteen years I’ve spent sharing sound.
Since I last wrote, I’ve added new chapters I’m quite excited about. They are:
- What a Badass Sound Library Looks (and Sounds) Like
- How to Name Sounds, including:
- What Makes a Sound Name Powerful?
- Two Ways to Name Sound Effects
- Expanded sections: links to software and helpful websites.
- Blending Creativity and Commerce
- Preparing Your Music Tracks, including:
- Registering Your Tracks
- Signing With a Publishing Rights Organization
- Working with Composers and Publishers
- Common Problems… And How to Avoid Them, including:
- Fixing Limp Sounds
- Strengthening Weak Collections
- Avoiding the Wrong Partners
- Getting Out Of a Bad Deal
- Avoiding Over-Saturation
- Increasing Low Sales
- Resolving Distributor Disputes
These sections are in addition to the 102 chapters and 44,000 words already completed and polished.
To give you a taste of what I’ve been writing, I’ll be posting chapters pulled directly from the new e-Book, starting this Wednesday. Stay tuned!
