Hello, friends-list :D I'm in a bit of a jam, and I'm hoping someone here can help. So, I've written this little book, and Fey Publishing has been kind enough to accept it for publication! There's a little glitch, though. Turns out I'm something of a music addict, and I sprinkled lyrics throughout the book. And there's this little thing called copyright infringement...oops. My bad.
So, I'm a girl in need of a song or poem that could be used as song lyrics. If you are (or someone you know is) a songwriter, poet, etc. I need you! Ideally, I'd like it to be about not judging a book by its cover, never knowing what's going on under the surface, something like that. The original song was Amanda Marshall's 'Everybody's Got a Story', just for reference. But I'm not going to be picky here. Time is of the essence, so if it even remotely fits, I'm going to jump on it like a lioness on a sick gazelle, mmkay?
We can't afford to pay in dollars, but how does a truckload of free publicity sound? I'll link to you on my Facebook, LJ, twitter, etc. We'll feature your name, lyrics and website info in the book (and probably on the publisher's website as well, though I'm not 100% sure on that). I'll personally pimp you from here to Mozambique, tell everyone you're the best songwriter/poet EVER in the history of EVER, you're my best friend, you're an incredible lover, whatever. (J/K on that last one. Unless you really need me to. I'm flexible.)
Seriously, though--HELP. PLEASE. I'm keeping this post unlocked (unless my "people" tell me I can't for some legal reason), so link it everywhere, tell your friends, please please I'm begging you please. Think of it as American Idol Lite--all the flavor, none of the cash!
