I’ve been working in music publishing for just over 15 years, and I’ve been fielding questions since Day 1 on how it all works. was born from that in 2012 as a general resource that explains it in the simplest way possible, and now there’s an eBook to make it even easier.

100% free for No Average Journey readers, it is essentially the website lessons condensed into a quick-to-read PDF.

It will walk you through the foundation of the publishing world, various deals and revenue streams, and tips to prevent yourself from getting screwed (or sued).

There are more free eBooks coming soon on a myriad of topics, all with the goal of encouraging up-and-coming artists to be as passionate about the business side as they are with their art, so stay tuned.
