I just found out there is a (mostly D&D) gaming convention planned in Iraq for the 9th of June, Ziggurat Con.
aylinn wants to include a copy of I Promised Eli in a packet she's sending them (they need gaming books and dice and stuff). I thought that was a very good idea. That made me think of something.
The Echo's Children CDs have a couple of D&D songs on them (and a few more songs that come from other roleplaying games). I checked with Callie, and it's okay with her, so, I was thinking I might burn a CD of gaming songs (Echo's Children, and some of my own, if I find any extras) to go into the Ziggurat Con package.
And then I thought, "maybe some of the people on my friends list might be interested." Do you have mp3(s) of gaming song(s) you wrote that you would like to send to Ziggurat Con? Are you okay with sending them out, knowing that if people like songs on the CD they'll probably be copied and passed around and I don't imagine you'll be getting royalties for them? (Quick warning--if this seems like a great idea to you and you're all enthused about getting started, please don't e-mail me any mp3s yet. I have a dialup modem and will need to make special arrangements to download anything big.)
Do you want to send them out on separate CDs--maybe one per artist--or would one compilation CD be better, or some combination of the two?
If people are in favor of a compilation CD, I'm willing to do the compiling, or to pass the responsibility on to another, either way. If I do the compiling, I will try to get the CD off to Ziggurat Con by May 9th, because it can take a while to ship things overseas and I want to be sure it gets there in time. That would mean I would need to get mp3s from people by May 4th or so, which would be about 2 1/2 weeks from today.
What do people think? If there's no interest, that's okay--I'll just send my stuff.
