We're looking for the music for the video book trailer of Angela's Salvation. We decided this time we'd do things a little differently and hopefully promote a new band or vocalist and open up their chances to shine. A few rules about submitting work to Tears of Crimson for this promotion:
1. The music and vocals must be original and you must hold the copyright. By sending material in, you agree that you have the necessary rights to allow us to use the song for video production.
2. Consider the theme of the book (detailed below) since this is a romance novel, it makes sense that heavy metal and rap for this book would not be a good fit. It's not that we don't enjoy that type of music, it just won't fit our project this time.
3. Deadline for accepting submissions will be March 1,2013. If we don't have a submission that we approve of by that date, we will go with a backup track from our other sources.
This is the opportunity to have your music promoted on our site, as well as on Amazon and Goodreads where we post book trailers. Please address your submission in the following way, RE: Song Submission
we get thousands of emails a day and don't want yours getting lost because we didn't see the subject line.
If a suitable song choice is submitted, then we will post the bio information for the band or artist responsible for the creation on the video itself, as well as on the book site we submit too.
