May: What's Coming Out? Do You Have a Release?

may Pictures, Images and Photos

Well, my Birthday is in May and it seems to be a blogger tradition to do SOMETHING different to celebrate. My plan is to promote new releases. I already have a lot of authors on board with some really awesome ideas in the works! However, I'd love to include more authors if they wish to be a part of this and their book comes out in May (of course!), and I'd also like to do some stuff on music, movies, etc. since Shooting Stars is all about EVERYTHING entertainment so if you know of anything that comes out in the month of May please let me know in the comments...and if it's something of YOURS that comes out in May, you can comment and/or email me: Lauren51990 AT aol DOT com

Thank you very much and please leave your ideas!

I actaully have an idea, as far as music. You could release a compilation CD with a bunch of artists that you all (but especailly you, since its you birthaday) like, but aren't signed, yet want to promote. I could actually release it on Itunes, Amazon and all that. Just an Idea.

Thanks for the comment on my blog, by the way....

To answer you quiestion, We are a Media Group Based out of LA in California (for those of you who don't know where LA is). We own a recording studio, as well as a Publishing Company, and Produce, Write, and Engineer upcoming artists who are serious about their craft. We're also not limited to musicians. We Shop scripts for screenwriters, provide services for upcoming directors and actors, and even authors! While we don't garantee major book contracts or anything wild like that, we self publish books for major distribution on, Barnes and , Amazon, and the like.

On top of that, we have an electropop sideproject that we both do, just for fun. (Takes the edge off of working on Music that we're told to work on by doing stuff we wanna do.)

Sorry for being so long winded.

But yea, Happy Future Birthday!!

Hey Ge: Thanks so much for all of the information. I think it's great what you are doing, trying to help out musicians and authors and the like. That's amazing.

I love the idea of a compilation. We've done something similar in the past but it was posted on purevolume so people could download the songs for free (the bands agree, obviously) but I'd love to hear more about your idea for doing it again. Feel free to email me!

What a neat idea!

My birthday is the month [February] so I will have to come up with something to do for my YA book blog!

Polo.Pony: Best of luck! I'm never sure what to do when I try and come up with something special. hahah

Livinia: Yay, I can't wait to check yours out. And thanks!

My birthday is in May too! LoL the 13th to be exact... what day is yours?

Well one of the books I can think of off the top of my head that comes out in May is "Being Nikki" by Meg Cabot...

Movies coming out in theater in May: X-Men Origins: Wolverine (I'm soo excited for this one), Wild Child (starring Emma Roberts), Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (I saw the first movie at thought it was great and I'm looking forward to seeing how this one turns out)

Those are just a few that I know about and here is a link to a list of movies that are releasing in May as of right now:

As for music, sadly I can't think of any off the top of my head right now :(
