“I’ve worked for over 25 years as a musician. But the ‘rock star’ in the mirror is now in her late 40s, but still able to crank out tunes that TV, films and new media are willing to pay me for. I write songs to pitch to the few TV/film folks I am establishing relationships with.
“So my publicity focus is to that very small behind-the-scenes group of music supervisors and film producers who can give me the work, as well as any other company that needs music for their corporate presentation, video game, or whatever. What, pray tell, are the best publicity tactics I can use to convince those people I’m their gal? I have gotten on to blogs like The Muse’s Muse and ProBlogger, I have a monthly newsletter that I send out to my fan base and have generated a few press releases to industry trades.
“Your Hounds can read about me and hear samples of some of my personal as well as TV music at my website if that helps them formulate some suggestions.”
