My name is Vivek Menon and I work for Packt, a UK based publishing company specializing in publishing books based on Information Technology (I.T). We are currently engaged in promoting our latest book on LMMS.

Written by David Earl, a music composer, producer, and performer living in the San Francisco Bay Area,LMMS: A Complete Guide to Dance Music Production will give readers a brief lesson on the best of dance music history, then learn how to recreate it using the Open Source digital workstation - LMMS. The reader will be guided through creating a project from start to finish. By the end of this book, the reader will know how to create a full dance track in LMMS and make it ready for distribution.

You can read more about the book here: http://www.packtpub.com/linux-multimedia-studio-complete-guide-to-dance-music-production/book

Since, very few books on Music Production are published every year, it would be really appreciated if anyone would be willing to review our book which would help us further improve the content for future editions as well.

We are looking for reviewers who would be willing to review the book before the end of this month, since we are at the end of it's promotional cycle and are still looking to get more reviews up online on blogs/websites/Amazon. I realize it's a tall order hence we have decided to relax the guidelines as far as the format of the review goes. Merely a paragraph or two with the book link mentioned in the review would suffice. If you think, you won't be able to finish reading the entire book before the deadline, even your initial impressions about the book would be more than appreciated.

Furthermore, we are also looking forward to host contest/Giveaways on prominent websites,preferably with a PR of 4 or more. If your blog/website qualifies for the same or if you know someone else who would be interested, do let me know. And once the contest goes live, you'd be eligible for another free e-copy of your choice!

And as a token of our appreciation for all your time and efforts, I'd be more than glad to place an order for any e-copy of any book of your choice.
You can check out our entire library of books here: http://www.packtpub.com/books/all, and also our recent releases here: http://www.packtpub.com/recently-published-books.

If you're interested in reviewing the book, do get back to me at vivekm@packtpub.com

Looking forward to your reply.

Warm Regards,
