"Pamela’s book has the potential to expand our options, going far beyond, or deep within our own life experiences to make songs that express what love, within life, might mean to a whole world of listeners looking to songwriters to help them make it all make sense."--James Linderman, The Muse's News "WOW! What a rush! Now, I know, writing "love" songs may not be your specialty, but admit it, don’t you sometimes feel that powerful desire to write what you feel in your heart. OK, we’re all supposed to write "from" the heart, but I’m talking about real matters of the heart. Love ... that real, incredible, seemingly indescribable emotion that hits you, grabs you, knocks you silly, makes you say and do some pretty crazy things to win the heart of someone else, and then, if it doesn’t work out, it can also knock you flat on your face, making you wish you could just die. What a roller coaster! What an emotion! AND ... what a book!"--Jay Carlton, The Songwriter's Connection "Pamela's book is an emotional walk through the wonders of language." —Mary Jo Mennella, Senior Vice President/General Manager, Fox Music Publishing "Every recording artist should read this book. I've worked with Pamela Oland on many love songs, and she really knows how to write a good one! She takes my thoughts and turns them into amazing love songs." —Ryan Starr, Recording Artist, American Idol Finalist "Never preachy, always inspirational and enlightening, this book is guaranteed to free up dormant creativity in many a reader. What a gift!" —Lorenz Rychner, Editor, RECORDING - The Magazine For The Recording Musician "Pamela Olandís new book truly teaches you the key to finding that special voice inside your heart." —Lynne Robin Green, President, Lansdowne/Winston/Bloor/Hoffman House Music Publishing Companies "Since hearing about Pamela Phillips Olandís new book The Art of Writing Love Songs, I knew she'd take me on a wonderful journey, all the while growing my songwriting skills, my creativity, and my self-knowledge.

The Art of Writing Love Songs is an endearing and inspiring guidebook to writing songs that delve into the most elemental of human emotions.
