About

So You've Ruined Your Life
So You've Ruined Your Life

This is the artwork for my first album.  If this project is funded, this will also be the artwork for my very first songbook.  Basically, I'm going to hand-write the lyrics and chord charts for all of the songs from my first album, So You've Ruined Your Life.  On the opposite side of the page will be anecdotes and stories about the recording of the individual track.  These will published in a high-quality, hard-bound, cd-sized book.  

If this project is funded, I plan on doing a Kickstarter campaign for each of my full-length studio albums as well as the ep's, so that, ultimately, there will be a complete collection of all of my song lyrics and chord charts.  

Risks and challenges

The only risk that I see is that this project isn't funded. I've already identified a printer, the artwork is complete, and the pages will be completed in the next few weeks. I will be posting a couple example pages in coming weeks.

Each book will be shipped with a tracking number to guarantee delivery.

    Signed Original, Illustrated Pages!

    You'll get the book, signed and personalized, as everybody else. But you'll also be able to choose one of the songs from the album, on a first come, first serve basis, and I will provide you both original pages from the book. You'll get the page with the lyrics, chord charts and illustrations and you'll also get the recording anecdotes, stories, and illustrations from its opposite page. These are unique, one-of-a-kind items. Even if I reprint the book, I will be reprinting it from the PDF I supplied to the publisher. So, here's a chance to own a very singular piece of Get Set Go history. :)

    If you live outside of the US, I am going to probably package the pages in something much more durable than the hard-cardboard document envelopes I have for the US shipments. That should explain the extra cost. So sorry about that. I want you to get them in pristine condition.
