I just found out today that my book on the philosophy of cover songs has been accepted for publication! Both referees said that the manuscript could be published as is, but of course went on for pages with comments about how it might be improved.
The publisher is Open Book Publishers, an academic press that releases all of its books under Creative Commons licenses. They were the first publisher I approached about the project, because— although I want the imprimatur of an academic press— what I want more is for the book to be available to people.
The working title of the project has been A Philosophy of Cover Songs.
This title conveys a lot of information. It’s a philosophy book. It’s about covers, in the musical sense. And it’s a philosophy of covers— a monograph, rather than an edited collection on the philosophy of covers.
This title is also boring. Suggestions of flashier titles are welcome.
