The only insider's guide to hit songwriting in the Digital Age-from an Emmy-nominated songwriter who has mentored two generations of Grammy Award winners and nominees.

"Molly has written an excellent primer on the world of songwriting. It's a great resource for folks trying to navigate the 'how tos' of the songwriting business." -Tim Wipperman, President, Anthem Music Publishing

Whether you're a lyricist, songwriter, or band, this powerful and inspiring book covers the essentials of contemporary craft-guiding you from good to great, then taking you through marketing, promotion, finding the right publisher, placing your song with an artist, getting signed, and providing the foundation for a successful writing career.

This indispensable guide features exclusive and highly informative interviews with insiders across multiple genres, including Tim Wipperman, "the publisher's publisher" in Nashville, Grammy-nominee J.P. Saxe ("If the World Was Ending") and Grammy-winner Debbie Hupp ("You Decorated My Life"), R&B mega-producers/writers for Rihanna, Carl Sturken and Evan Rogers, Grammy-winner and composer of instrumental music Art Munson, jingle writer Jim Andron, and Grammy- and Emmy-winning children's songwriters Michael Silversher and Patty Silversher.

"This is a wonderful book that offers superb advice to songwriters, new and experienced. Molly Leikin gives you solid, practical information, whether you are writing and composing for yourself or the whole world. Listen to her advice. This book may well be your ticket to songwriting success!" -Philip Lee Williams, award-winning novelist and poet

Molly Leikin was born in Canada and defected with her baritone ukulele to California during a 58-below-zero blizzard. The Department of Public Social Services in Los Angeles seemed to think she'd be a good Emergency Intake worker. Yeah, right. But she played hooky. Starting as a staff writer at Almo Music (A&M Records), over the next ten years, Molly had her songs recorded by almost every pop and country artist on the Billboard charts. Now she has a house full of gold and platinum records and an Emmy nomination. She also wrote themes and songs for over six dozen TV shows and movies, including Violet, which won an Oscar. The author of five books on songwriting, Molly also created Songwriting Consultants, Ltd., the international song consulting firm, where she's mentored two generations of Grammy winners and nominees. Her custom speechwriting company for CEOs, CFOs, and UFOs, is Anything with Words.
