Jonatha Brooke, one of my favorite singer-songwriters, has recorded a new album called Careful What You Wish For. She sent this message to her e-mailing list the other day:
I know you’re barraged with email every day. BUT, it occurred to me late last night, gearing up for this pre-order release, that if every one of you reading this (you all did sign up at some point!) bought the new CD here, we’d be able to cover our costs for three months!! No small feat.
So, it’s true, we’re ready to start taking pre-orders for my new record, “Careful What You Wish For.” We’ll start sending them out next week, and of course, I will autograph every single one.
As I’m sure you know, the record business is as tough as it’s ever been. Tower is gone, and most retail stores will only stock the top sellers. So whether you buy the record here, at Amazon or Borders or Barnes and Noble, every sale counts. Spreading the word to your friends and family is incredibly helpful too.
