  1. Hi Everyone,
    This is songwriter Eric Gichira. Would like to bring to your attention a new lyricbook that I’ve just published. Its title is: Effects of Love. See below for details about the book. It’s inspiring, educational and transformational – the good news is that it’s available on Amazon.com. Would also be pleased if you’d list it or preview it in your website, blog or other social media platforms. And hey, tell your family and circle of friends about it.

    You can purchase it from any of these locations.
    Here are the links to the book:
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N3YBWLW [US]
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N3YBWLW [UK]
    https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01N3YBWLW [CANADA]
    https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B01N3YBWLW [AUSTRALIA]

    About The Book:
    The hitmaking universe is highly competitive. That’s, however, no reason to worry or give up in your pursuit of one day having a hit song in your name. I wrote this book to help you do exactly that. Discover your potential and perfect your songwriting skills.

    Effects of Love is my latest lyricbook and is divided into two segments. The first segment is for Male Vocals while the second segment is for Female Vocals. Both segments in this book have twelve songs each, making for a total of twenty four songs.

    By buying this book, you get the usual benefits, as a songwriter, to sample my different song structures; songwriting techniques; storytelling in songwriting; writing memorable hooks; crafting universally commercial lyrics; discovering why a song’s ‘visual appeal’ is important, and why its mainly what contributes towards making a song a hit.

    I’ve tried to cover every emotion that takes place within the confines of love and loving. From the ‘butterflies in the stomach’ associated with falling in love – to the splitting headache, well, heartache of breaking up. The joy, the bliss, the excitement, the insecurities, the fears, the anger, the betrayal, the struggle to forgive, etc – is all captured in this lyricbook.

    So, in a sense, Effects of Love, has something for everyone. And great lessons to learn from – as a songwriter.

    Something caught my attention while I was writing this book: that I’ve really matured as a songwriter. I discovered that I’ve come a long way and have really improved in my craft. Now, that’s the beauty of songwriting – you learn and grow as you continue to dedicate your time towards improving your skills.

    Get, Effect of Love, today and enjoy all the benefits of this amazing book. It’s a game changer in your songwriting journey.

    Spread the word, too, about this new book and let others benefit from it. All the best in your songwriting journey. Learn what it takes and do what needs to be done. Goodluck!
