The journey continues. Yesterday I heard back from the copyright company about possibly using the title “Once in a Lullaby-My Journey Home” for the title of my book. They wanted more documentation specifically about how the lyrics of “Once in a Lullaby” would be used in the book. My editor was gracious and professional as she sent the requested documents. I, on the other hand, am feeling a bit anxious about the end result.
My story includes a memory of my father singing a song to me as a lullaby. I wanted to tie in my story with “The Wizard of Oz” and as I pondered the idea, the song “Over the Rainbow” came to mind. If you recall the song, you will know there is a lyric phrase that says, “Once in a Lullaby.” As you read the book, it will become more clear why this song and this specific lyric seemed like just the right fit. However, just using the lyric is not as easy as I thought it would be. Oh my! So all I can say now is, you have joined me on the journey. It’s a “wait and see” situation whether they will approve the title use of the lyric or whether the title will become “Lullaby Journey.” Either way, my book WILL be published soon and you will read about it here or on my Facebook page under C.L. Burger. Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
