music is life, music is breath, music is us

I might write a book….

So, I’ve been thinking. People really seem to take to my writing, and I would like to pursue writing a book. The thing is, I’m still a student, so I think it would be a rather fruitless pursuit to do a “scholarly” type book on music (i.e the type of book a student would do a research paper on), as I’m not sure it would be taken seriously by the academic community and it may alienate some of my reading base. Here I am as a writer asking the tribe that follows my work, what would YOU like to see me write a book about? The question is open-ended, so have fun.

  1. Perhaps you should consider doing a kind of hybrid book–a cross between scholarly and pop culture. I’m curious as to what might be your subject? Any ideas?

    • most likely something relating to rock/heavy metal music or composition since that is my area of expertise.

      • Interesting! Have you ever read: Metal Rules the Globe: Heavy Metal Music Around the World? It’s worth a read, although it is on the academic side of things.

  2. Another suggestion: World music with ethnic roots…?
