About

Promoting and Marketing, "Music Business: It's a Dirty Game!

Due to mass deception some say, "Oh, no she didn't" 

I say, "Oh, Yes, I did! I have no choice...or would you rather I do as they say  and 'Just Die?" I don't think so...It's simple self-defense!

I have published the book that I refer to as - A Game Changer!

Unlike any other book about the music business, I have compiled written documentation which proves corruption; such as, copyrights, public records, court docs, and contracts w/ Zomba Britney Spears & R. Kelly’s label / Jive Records music publisher – (now BMG-Zomba placed within Universal Music Publishing Group making them the world’s largest music publishing business.)

"Music Business: It's a Dirty Game!"

This is not just one person’s word against another. This not about any one man's actions. This was not about a lover's quarrel. There was no agreement or an understanding. No one asked or discussed anything, they just took.This was definitely a combined effort by many to secretly, deliberately abuse, exploit and violate the rights of a few (myself included). Smash and Grab!

Let me start by saying that I didn't wage war on the Music Industry. If my livelihood had not been taking repeatedly by those intending to destroy all evidence of their actions, I probably would not have had the time to complete this book. Even my places of employment were used to inflict harm. I found out later that the last employer has history of direct ties to the music industry.

Inside "Music Business: It's a Dirty Game! you will find proof of blatant civil rights violations, mail tampering, and more!  

Even if you think you know of my story, I promise you that you don't know half of it. There has been great effort put into hiding the truth. As long as the situation can be manipulated to keep a person isolated, this can continue on (as it has for decades).

Of course, I expected some opposition when producing evidence against a billion dollar industry but not to the extent that I have been forced to endure.

I have provided a couple links to demonstrate some of the tactics used.

Below are screenshots of the listing on GOOGLE PLAY and Google Search:

Google Tactics - WHAT DON'T THEY WANT YOU TO KNOW?

The other websites had the same upload but they have it posted right...

https://www.createspace.com/4184590
https://www.createspace.com/4184590

More Google Tactics -

Google Search shows my book for $0.99 but of course this is not correct. Amazon has the correct price $19.99 but Google undermines my efforts with this search results and by displaying preview pages out of context. Yes, I have asked them to remove the title listing repeatedly.

Finally, I was able to have Music Business: It's a Dirty Game! removed from their Google Books and Google Play websites.

I assure you that these methods are being used to hide the truth found in "Music Business: It's a Dirty Game!

Facebook Tactics:

The first Ad that I purchased reached over 44,000 hits, per page manager.

The second Ad I purchased from Facebook per copy of Ad tracking shows where they stopped all activity at $2.11.

Although "Music Business: It's a Dirty Game! is available worldwide in paperback and as an eBook on Amazon. Lulu, eBay, Createspace, etc... I have been informed that some buyers were unable to download the online copy due to technical issues. 

This is why I need your help. I need to physically promote "Music Business: It's a Dirty Game!

I am asking for financial assistance to travel to the people who would best be served by having access to the truth!

If everyone was okay with modern day slavery, these people would not try so hard to keep me down and block all my efforts.

It is my goal to reach EVERY aspiring artist to ensure that they are aware of all the tactics and methods used by most of the industry professionals. 

If anyone orders direct from Seven West Productions via eBay or PayPal and mentions KICKSTARTER will receive $5.00 off until 06/20/2013.

I have copies available and POD-Print on Demand via Createspace. if my copies sell out, I can have them shipped directly to me within 72 hours.

Your contributions will be used toward having a professional editor review to ensure that this books message is not hindered.

1. Transportation: Air, Car rental, gasoline,etc...(depending on the city)

2. Fourteen days Hotel/Lodging in a city near you @ $100-150 per night

3. Venue and Licensing Cost: Targeting School of the Arts, music studios, Colleges and University students.

Any additional funds will be used to continue my travels to other cities; such as, CA, GA, IL, and many more.

Any additional funds will be used to prepare a seminar that will cover the information provided in "Music Business: It's a Dirty Game!" and more regarding being prepared for all the tactics while meeting your goals in the music industry.

Any additional funds will also be used to cover cost of preparation for Color Hardback copies to be made available through Lightning Source for distribution through Ingram Publishing.

This book is currently available @ sevenwestproductions.com, Createspace, Amazon.com, Lulu.com, eBay, etc...

I am tired of feeling like this and I am not the one for it:

Risks and challenges

In reference to the risks and challenges that come with Promoting and Marketing "Music Business: It's a Dirty Game!, I am determined to not only stop the atrocities forced upon me but to assist in preventing this from happening again to others.

The internet is a great outlet but it is not enough, It is necessary to promote and market the printed copies to ensure that my message remains whole. I love using the web to promote but I have found that I have to constantly monitor my product.

As shown above, I have found some sites may not have my eBook listed in the correct category, author name listed and title incorrectly displayed.

I have noticed that some sites will advertise other similar products immediately under yours.

I dedicate 4-6 hours per day just monitoring and promoting. I have to submit daily request to have them correct issues.

I need to advertise and reach those who are not in a position to utilize the web. I need your help to get the message out that this is not just another book.

A 2-3 week Book Tour: I plan to reach a wider audience in order to circulate my book to High school/college students, and libraries. I would use my vehicle so I would need help with Gas, Hotels, Venues, $2,500.

In order to successfully promote and market this project, I have to use a hands-on approach due to the opposition faced online (as shown above). The best part of this Project is that the contributors decide which cities would best be served by "Music Business: It's a Dirty Game!

Each contributor will enter a city where they would like to see this book promoted and the cities will be listed in the order of the most votes.

After many years of abuse, I decided to write this story and I didn't let the angry naysayers interfere. I thought about the many before me that didn't survive the tactics and how people were chanting for my demise. I held my head high and fought tooth and nail to get "Music Business: It's a Dirty Game! published.

The most important thing that I have learned is that sitting still only gives more time for haters to plot and they will continue to try to break spirits so the best thing that I can do is press forward.

With your help, I will take my life back and fight this deliberate injustice by not allowing my oppressors to win. With your help, this will be a Game Changer!

I put 100% into my endeavors. I will use funds to advertise, promote and schedule a book tour. Again, It is my goal to reach EVERY aspiring artist, high school and School of the Arts graduate! I never stop until my goal is reached and even then I don't know when to stop fighting...

I am and will be available for virtual or in-person interviews, workshops and seminars to provide more detailed information from my personal experiences and knowledge regarding the music business that is not mentioned inside my book, Music Business: It's a Dirty Game!"

With your help, we can change the world together!!
