TO ALL: In this horrible era of email worms and viruses, let us remind you that we NEVER send email attachments of ANY kind, not even a .doc or .txt file attachment, NOR do we accept them.

If you get an email with an ATTACHMENT from Goodnight Kiss.com or SceneStealer.com, do NOT open it. These days hacker/virus creators can penetrate some email filters, and we never know what's next.

Let me repeat:

WE NEVER, NEVER, NEVER SEND
EMAIL ATTACHMENTS

  4. RHYTHM OF HONOR CD: Now being played on Stardust radio!

  5. ADDICTION: Highs & Lows: Still fine play on 12-step radio, work is being done on a visual presentation with the songs as back up.

  6. MUSIC HORROR STORIES: New promo campaign, review by pro journalist

  7. AND TO ALL A GOODNIGHT: New reviews coming and new campaigns planned for the Christmas season

  8. TALL TALES: Still at about 100 CD sales away from second printing and release on this biting political parody.

  9. JACK SEGAL and JANET FISHER CDs doing well.

  10. PUBLISHED CATALOG WRITERS, INCLUDING INSTRUMENTALS: Always presented for the appropriate call. Our music was used in 5 of a 7-set commercial shoot in LA.

  11. PRIVATE CONSULTATIONS available at this time, with approximately 1-2 weeks notice. Call the office to check the schedule, to get the next projected times.

PLEASE NOTE! If you worked on any GOODNIGHT KISS project, you are entitled to access copies of that project for cost plus $1.00. So, for example, you are on the Christmas CD, you could order copies for about $5.00 (plus true post office cost about $.99 for a sleeve mailing and $1.46 for a plastic jewel cased CD). If you worked on the book, the cost is higher, about $7.00, and the shipping is quite a bit more, but that's the way of books. (Unless you choose media rate, then it's cheap, but takes a few weeks to get there.)

This way, if you choose to sell them and make the mark up for yourself, we're fine with that. We WANT you to be able to access your own work for the same price we do!

We also offer deep discounts to distributors who want to sell our products. Please call our office for special orders of 20 or more. 831-479-9993

NEW COPYRIGHT FEES FOR LIBRARY OF CONGRESS July 1, 2006

COPYRIGHT FEES CHANGED JULY 1, 2006- - -

The Copyright Office is publishing a final rule establishing adjusted fees for its services. The adjusted fees will recover a significant part of the costs to the Office of registering claims and will provide full cost recovery for many services provided by the Office that benefit only, or primarily, the user of that service. The basic registration fee is scheduled to increase from $30 to $45. The proposed fee increase for pre-registration has been eliminated, and the proposed increase for group registration of photographs has been reduced to the fee for basic registration. All the adjusted fees are scheduled to be effective July 1, 2006, unless Congress acts before that date stating disapproval of the fees. For further information, go to the Copyright Office website at: 

http://www.copyright.gov/fedreg/2006/71fr31089.html

MECHANICAL RATES FOR 2006

Statutory Mechanical Royalty Rates
The statutory mechanical rate for royalties pays
to writer, to publisher for every copy sold if the
playing time for the song is under five minutes.

On January 1, 2006, the rates went up to 9 per song (or 1.75
per minute, for every song 5 minutes or over).

That means 4.5 cents due the writer and 4.5 cents due the publisher, per song, per unit pressed, is owed the administrator of the copyright (usually the publisher collects for both, then pays the writer). If you press 500 records (the minimum payment considered), the fee owed for the entire mechanical royalty is $45.00 (22.50 for the writer, 22.50 for the publisher). This payment is due at the time of manufacture, NOT upon a sale.

CURRENT COMPANY SUBMISSION POLICIES

TO BE INFORMED AS TO OUR MOST IMMEDIATE NEEDS, which can change daily, SUBSCRIBE TO OUR FREE ONLINE NEWSLETTER.

We publish our latest requests 1-3 times per month, with the proper codes for accepted submissions for each project being pitched.

Again, it's free, and we do NOT sell or pass along your personal information or email. Current Company Policies:

Our company works with single songs of master quality, and style is determined by what the Industry calls us for at the time. Since we publish mainly for Film and TV, our needs are varied, but time-oriented and specific. We do occasionally use instrumental songs, but we do not find work for composers or promote library music. (We can only place what the Industry is requesting at the time.)

To see what we are looking for and when we are looking, you need to subscribe to our
free email Newsletter. It is the ONLY sane way of communicating with all the writers who send us inquires. It comes 2-3 times per month, by request only, and is loaded with pro articles, great Q&A, special software links, and occasionally a pretty good opportunity or two for pitching material. It is truly the only way we can quickly inform everyone when an immediate call is requested.

We do NOT sell or pass along your information for any reason.

Unless PROPERLY CODED, UNDER YOUR RETURN ADDRESS, to reflect a specific request by our company, material will be refused or discarded, unopened. If we do announce a need at the site or in the newsletter, you are welcome to submit something appropriate at that time. All requested material is given a code for the OUTSIDE of the submission envelope at the time it is called for in the newsletter. Without that code, material is returned unopened.

Beginning writers and artists should read through the articles listed on the
ARTICLES PAGE

I recommend:
"Don't Dream It, DO It"

and
"The Blue Dress" and also, "Nobody Cares"

We also occasionally list other publishers looking for things in the newsletter. Sorry, but please do NOT send anything we don't specifically ask for. Understand that we get, literally, 150 - 400 emails per DAY, asking career questions, discussing industry practices, requesting that we review material -- and the truth is, it is ONLY the uses of our song catalogue, along with the sales of our fine products, that keeps our company alive.

It is from those earnings that new projects are created, and new music might be licensed -- so that is where we must spend our time.
What we do (so you know what we will be looking for).

Or, if you want to see
what we have signed and/or invested in, from independent writers and artists.

We also have a variety of
FREE contests during the year, from which we create some of our projects.

If you are looking for a
consultation, evaluation, or class.

If you want to make an appointment for 1-on-1 time, you'll need to call the office to set a time. Currently, rates begin at $35 for a 20 minute phone consultation.

831-479-9993 -- 10AM - 4PM, Pacific Standard Time.

Thanks again for considering Goodnight Kiss.

Song Contest Page

* * * * *

When there IS a song call:

  • NO material accepted that is not properly coded.

  • NO material accepted unless requested through newsletter.

New requests posted in the NEWSLETTER as they happen.

TRIVIA for NEW Goodnight Kiss Visitors:
Many of you want to know what we look for and invest in, in the way of material. If you really want to know, get one of our And To All A Goodnight , ADDICTION: Highs & Lows , RHYTHM OF HONOR CDs, or a copy of our MUSIC HORROR STORIES book -- those are samples of current projects which we funded and currently pay royalties. Almost all of the artists and writers were found through our free contests or our online newsletter.

When we are looking, and what we are specifically looking for, can change in a phone call. The industry calls us for something, and we put the call out, if we do not have it in our catalogue. That's why we have the email newsletter.

Please understand that we are not a free review service for artists and songwriters -- we run a business in the area of music (publishing and production), and we are only interested in what we think we can pitch quickly, or work from which we create retail product on a specific topic or in a specific style. We do not review outside material that we have not asked for. If you want your work evaluated, or want to schedule a career consultation, call the office to make an appointment, or see our fee schedule here.

ALL SUBMISSIONS require a code, or they are discarded. When we do issue a request in the newsletter, each call has a code (and a deadline) next to it for your use. Uncoded packages, or packages received after deadlines are discarded. Thanks for understanding.

All our CDs are available at Amazon.com and now CDBABY .
