Continuum Books' 33 1/3 Series


Recommended Posts

Good luck Joels (or should that be Joel squared)! I've heard these are notoriously competitive. (I had a colleague who submitted a proposal several years ago that I figured would be a slam dunk -- she and her partner even went to the Rock and Roll Hall of fame and transcribed several hours of unpublished interviews from their subject....but...alas...) I say that not to be discouraging but just to contextualize whatever difficulties you might have encountered in the past.)

I have no illusions that it'll be easy -- they get 400+ proposals each call -- but I've grown much more confident since I first started submitting pitches in 2007! I actually have a new take on my perennial pitch that I'm pretty excited about.

I ended up submitting one on Weezer's lost/unreleased second album Songs from the Black Hole since  they asked for no re-submitted pitches. I'm happy with what I wrote, regardless of the long odds...

New list is out. I think it's time to retire the ol' Weezer pitch.
