How it started:
The Company:
For almost twenty years, our music publishing company Goodnight Kiss Music,
in Hollywood, California, has been placing songs into Film and Television and providing
special music for all types of professional projects and uses. We were featured Nov. 2000
as one of L.A.'s top five "Maverick" Publishers in the LA MUSIC CONNECTION magazine. 
Our credits:
http://www.goodnightkiss.com/compi.html

We are a serious company in the real business of music. We are proud of the projects
we produce, and feel that they compete in quality with more major corporate works.  We
sign only songs competitive with the BEST of what's being played on the radio, but we are also
known for our special projects, one of which is this book, containing fifty stories from musicians
around the world about their hysterically funny and touchingly nostalgic attempts to survive the
Music Business.

The Book:
When we published an article on our website, a "horror story" about when I had first arrived
in Hollywood, we had such great response, we "topiced" the same in a Halloween Newsletter
with stories contributed by the subscribers (both pros and newcomers in the business.)
When THAT was a big success within the subscriber base (and our office), we decided to expand to a physical book. We invited the writers we work with to submit stories for the project, and they
did not disappoint us.

"MUSIC HORROR STORIES" is a GREAT book for anyone who has dealt with the
Entertainment Industries on a professional level. It also makes a lot of sense for those who
are thinking about entering into music as a career. As it is written by a variety of authors, the
flavors and experiences are quite a feast, and for the most part told very intimately.

As a company we must admit we also find FUN to be a motivator in the projects we
produce, such as the book, and our current contest with music complimetary to the
book AND media party. I think that fun work projects are the reason our company thrives.
We love what we do, so we do it hour upon hour with great passion.

The Contest:
http://www.goodnightkiss.com/contest.html 

There is NEVER a fee for the writers or artists to enter or be involved with
GOODNIGHT KISS contests or projects.  Our company is here to create income
from the Industry through a writer's/artist's work, not through them as a consumer.
