CHANCE, CAT'S CLAW SIGNINGS and the UNDER YOUR SPELL CHALLENGE

I know it's been a long time coming, but Chance is now available on Amazon! You can still buy a hard copy of the DVD directly from Benson Entertainment, but it is now digitally available, too.

On another note, I will be doing a few more Cat's Claw signings this month:

MARCH 6th at 2pm
DARK DELICACIES
4213 W. Burbank
Burbank, CA 91505

1-818-556-6660

MARCH 27th at 2pm
with Chris Marie Green
BORDERS
6521 Las Vegas Blvd. South
Las Vegas, NV 89119
702-383-6734

During my mini-Cat's Claw Tour last week many of you asked me if I was going to do another Review Challenge for Cat's Claw. I have been hard put to come up with something that would best the Death's Daughter Macarena Challenge...and I finally think I have come up with a cool idea!

Whenever I twitter that I will be doing a 'signing', I get at least thirty replies from people saying how bummed they were because they'd thought they'd read 'singing'!

So, my new challenge is this:

If I get 200 reviews for Cat's Claw on Amazon (I know, I'm upping the numbers this time) then I will post a video of me spoofing/singing 'Under Your Spell' on Youtube.

And I promise to make it as silly and as fun as possible!

  2. Like I said on my facebook page - We are so going to make you sing!

    I actually got a signed copy from you at
    Mysterious Galaxy last week. < I have to say this about you : I heard you on Dr. Blogstein sometime in the past answering a question about what you most wanted to be remembered for - directing, writing, etc. You responded that you wanted to be remembered for being nice. Or something to that nature. It never ceases to amaze me at how true that is about you - you are so incredibly nice. You always have a smile to share with your fans, and are willing to chat - even when you look tired. So, above everything else that I know that you do, I remember you for the compassion for humanity that you consistantly show. >

    So, back to the book. I've already finished reading it. It is Awesome! I will be lining up to post my review on Amazon asap. So, just need 199 others...and we get you singing!

  3. Ooh! I'll be in Vegas for a taekwondo tournament on March 27th! Getting there may be an issue though...especially if Diana is competing when you are doing your signing. How long do the signings usually last?

  4. YUSSS! Must...read...faster!

    My friends and I like to mess around with Under Your Spell. "I'm under your BED." Not that I don't absolutely love your singing!

    Meeting you on Saturday was so amazing. Please come back to NY soon.

  5. Wow, I thought the "Macarena Challenge" was gutsy, oh and very well done I might add' ;-) I believe however the "new" challenge has definitely topped the first one. A brilliant idea you brave soul, you :-)
    No doubt the challenge will be met and I for one can't wait to see the video on YouTube!

  6. Warm up those vocal chords!! Started the Cat's Claw fan page on Facebook today and I'm guaranteeing well over 200 reviews!!!!

  7. Only 200? ;)

    Keeping in the spirit of OMWF, can I request that for your video, you again don some sort of inexplicable ren faire madrigal gown? Oh, and by some chance, could you slip in a part where you dance into a pole? Neat. :D

  8. Excellent news about Chance being available on Amazon (although sadly at the moment not outside the US).

    Will be interesting to see your take on "Under Your Spell". As soon as I am able to get a copy and read it you will have my review as I did last time on Amazon's UK site.

    And I agree with the comment about your compassion and humanity being amongst your greatest strengths. As impressive as your talent is (and it is an impressive talent) it is you the person that has engendered such loyal and loving support and that you earn it, rather than presume it, is a credit to you.

  9. I'm trying really hard to find Cat's Claw over here in Holland. It took a while for us to get Death's Daughter so...

  11. Will there be a guy getting you up and then you'd go down once he gets off? :p

    I can't wait. And you know you're gonna get those 200 reviews, right?

  12. Okay Amber, here's what you will be doing:

    You will dress as a lobster and sing the following:

    "I long for a life aquatic / ever the tide on my fins /
    Life on the land is static / I figure I should 'dive in' /
    Planktonaric fish - represent my only wish: /
    I'm under your krill - swimming with the bass, is that just too much to ask?/
    I wish I had gills - I don't feel it selfish, just to emulate the shellfish... "

    Let me know if you need more lyrics, okay?

  16. I have my Saturday planned to be at the Burbank signing to get my copy of Cat's Claw. A nice 4 1/4 hour round trip drive will make a day of it. I was impressed with Death's Daughter and heard Cat's Claw is better, I'm hooked.

  17. I plan to be at the Burbank signing, and have made it my goal to finish the book before then xD But I was wondering if you think you'll ever have any book signings in Long Beach?

    Given that I am a mere Canadian, I've pretty much given up (choke) on your coming up for a signing on the westernmost part of my country (not Vancouver...Vancouver Island), and the fact that computers and computer skills are not exactly my strengths, being able to contribute to the "Cat's Claw" review drive is pretty much out of the question:( As for your idea of making a Youtube video of "Under Your Spell"--and it's going to be difficult to forget the original version featuring the cute honey-blonde with the Lynn Kellogg-y voice and the green, bosom-heaving ren faire dress--I don't think you're thinking big enough. Get Joss Whedon's permission to base a web series or even a movie on it. Whether it came out in theatres or straight to DVD, you know you'd have an audience for it (didn't do too shabby for that ABBA-based movie...still can't believe they turned down one BILLION dollars for a reunion--oh, well). Enjoy the weekend.

  19. You're just as awesome as I thought you would be :D I was psyched to meet you today and my friend, Cari, was excited about the fact that she had a message from you on her phone. Thank you for doing that :) I really do hope you have a signing in Long Beach sometime though hehe. And I'm almost ready to write a review on Amazon for Cat's Claw, can't wait for the video!!!
