Recording pioneers would hardly recognize the music industry today. While new acts rise and fall, technology such as CD burners and Internet file sharing programs ignite battles over copyrights and royalties. One aspect of music that has not changed, however, is the industry's insatiable appetite for new songs. Fred Koller, whose hundreds of recorded compositions include three number one hit songs, has fully revised and expanded his classic guide How to Pitch and Promote Your Songs .

Author Notes

Fred Koller is an award-winning and eclectic songwriter whose songs include the top ten pop hit "Angel Eyes" and the country hit "Goin, Gone." He has written for some of the top artists in blues, bluegrass, folk, and zydeco, including John Hiatt, Nanci Griffith, Jerry Lee Lewis, Conway Twitty, and The Sons of the Pioneers. He has released five critically acclaimed albums, the latest of which is a collection of songs he cowrote with the late songwriter and children's author Shel Silverstein. He lives and works in Nashville, Tennessee
