So Impressed

Remember that I said Jester had found me the most perfect song ever for one of my Lex Valentine videos? Well, he did. I liked the song so much that I went and listened to the whole album and then downloaded it from Rhapsody. This band is the shit. I went to their website looking for contact info and lo and behold their singer/songwriter’s email addy was there. So I emailed him and asked for permission to use ‘Nikki’ in my video. I think it was less than an hour later he got back to me and said… YES! How freaking cool is this guy?

So, now that I have Adam Cohen’s permission, here is my Pink Chair Diaries Trilogy video.

That’s two bands now that have given me permission to use their music. Since Friday is a promo day on some of the Yahoo loops I belong to, I’ll be touting the videos! I want to do all I can to get my name out there which in turn, with the videos, gets the band names out there too. It’s just a scratching back thing. I’m still waiting to hear back from singer/songwriter Dan Wilson. I want to use his song Breathless for Runaway Train. I tried it in my test video and it’s awesome, but I prefer to have permission. I just feel better if I do.

Although, the Silver Queen vid I made that I like so much, uses Evanescence, and I doubt any email I sent to any contact for them would get me permission to use the song. So I’m gonna make the video private. I really made it for Shiny Bitch anyway. I’ll think of another song that I can get permission for and then post the official Silver Queen vid.

One more thing before I go. PseudoSJ sent me a twat about a contest where they are giving away a Dooney giraffe purse. Now, I know I already have one, but this is the BIG one! The one I originally tried to get, but didn’t have the money for. So I’m entering the contest as many times as I can in the hope that maybe, just maybe, luck will shine on me this year and give me a birthday gift of winning this purse. It’s a longshot, but I have to try. The contest is at HandbagPlanet.com.

I’m home today working on my WIPs, trying to finish this Valentine story. It’s not going well. Ugh. Anyway, if anyone would like to be my beta reader, I could use a couple of people. You need a sharp eye to catch my left out words and commas, and you gotta be able to tell me if something does flow well or make sense to you. If you’re interested send me an email at winter at winterheart dot com.

BTW, this is my 200th post. Go me! Happy Friday!

    Becky – The promo thing is something the ePublishers all seem to expect of you. Big learning curve for me, but luckily I have the skill to make stuff in Photoshop and the video thing hasn’t been hard to learn.

    Jen – I always get the best ideas from you. When I saw your Command video it did occur to me that there were bands I had some small connections with that I might be able to use for vids. As for eyes on my work… when Max’s story is done, I’ll send it to you. If I’m lucky, I’ll finish this weekend. I’m halfway to the 18K words…

    Mary – I had someone check me at the 1/3 mark. I’ll send it to you at the 2/3rds mark. I’m trying not to go back and edit myself so that I can keep moving forward with the story. Usually, I’m an anal idiot who keeps going back over what I already wrote. I want to push forward though which is why I’m restraining myself this time. Thanks for offering to help!

    Ally – Send me a quick email to prompt me to ensure I have your address saved. When I get to the end, I’ll send it to you for the last read through. Then I’ll do an edit myself and send it to Jen to critique. After that, a final edit and it’s off to the publisher! I’m hoping, if I can stay on task, by this time next week I’ll be polishing it for submission.

    Marty – Jester’s really gifted when it comes to music. He knew exactly the mood I wanted to convey and picked a perfect song. He was pretty impressed that Adam Cohen got back to me too! He really admires him.

    You can count me in if you want. My brother always asks me to help him correct his papers so I’m used to looking for the little stuff like that.

    That’s totally awesome with the bands. Good to know that they’re cool about giving permission.

  13. Happy 200th post, darlin’.
    YOu know you can send me something if you want hon.
    I was totally shocked that Stream Of Passion responded when I asked permission to use their music for my Command Series book trailers.
    I love to find new music on MySpace and the artists there are usually very cool about giving permission.
    Awesome videos.
