Co-written by Peter Spellman and Dave Cool (and yes, that’s his real name!), the guide is based on 3 of Peter’s classic books: “The Self-Promoting Musician”, “INDIE Power” and “INDIE Marketing Power”. Along with the powerful information taken from those books, Dave Cool also added his own insights and experience to create a uniquely powerful tool for singer-songwriters that is ideal for those who might feel like they don’t have the time to read several full-size books on marketing and promotion, and want to take immediate action to promote their CD.

I was really excited because I thought a guide that helped step by step with creating a successful CD release campaign was the best idea ever until I read it and realized that there was even more to your book than that. You didn't just talk about how to release your album successfully, but also about how to live.
