Film Industry Changes
Like the publishing industry, the landscape of the film and television is changing rapidly too.
Just recently this dropped into my inbox from FilmTake:
And also this
With streaming being at an all-time high, the need for new and compelling content has never been greater.
HBO, Disney, Amazon, Apple, Hulu, Netflix, NBC, Sky, Sony, Fox, Starz...the list goes on from there...they are all eager for fresh stories that will hook in viewers.
Who is this course for?
The dreamers and believers. It's for anyone who like me, has envisioned their books as a movie, or TV series, and has ever dreamed of watching actors bring their characters and story to life.
In this course you'll learn:
- What to pitch (having a great story is just the beginning)
- How to pitch (there's a right was and a wrong way)
- Who to pitch (do you have a dream list of industry people you'd love to work with?)
- How to connect with them (hint: it's about relationship building)
Why This Course?
Because like you, I dreamed of seeing my books on the big screen.
When I wrote Fire & Ice, the first book in the Faerie Song Saga, I could see every scene playing out just like a movie. It was visceral and vivid and I was determined that it was destined for Hollywood. I was also at that point in time, unpublished in fiction, without an agent or publisher. Sure, I had a good book completed, but that was all. As you can imagine, my dreams were met with bitter laughter by many who insisted that my odds were basically nil.
They said it was impossible.
But those who know me know I'm a bit stubborn in my refusal to buy into the beliefs of others. So I just kept asking, what if it was possible?
That one solitary question is what fueled me...and now, that first book is in development for a feature film, a series or possibly both.
Since then, I've met and connected with key industry people from across the film and television, by implementing the same strategies I used to sell the option to my very first book.
Here are a few (but not all) of the companies I've connected with....
Since the number one question I'm asked by other authors is HOW I did it, I've created this course to answer that question in as much detail as I can. Something I simply couldn't do when responding to one question at a time. And now, I want to share that with YOU!
Because if I can do it, so can you!

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE?
Authors and Writers who are willing to put in the time, effort needed to pursue thier dream of optioning their books. In my experience the film industry isn't a fast moving wheel. It takes patience, perseverance, and a willingness to keep trying despite the perceived odds. I can't guarantee you'll see your book on the big or small screen, but I can tell you my method has worked for me, and similar methods have worked for other creatives also .. writers, artists, actors, musicians...the list goes on.
WHO SHOULD NOT TAKE THIS COURSE?
Anyone who doesn't believe seeing their book on screen is possible. Anyone looking for a quick fix. Anyone not willing to put in the time and effort and energy to pursuit their dream. Anyone not willing to be unconventional and think outside the box (or color outside the lines, or...insert chosen platitude here). Anyone who doesn't see themselves and their writing as a professional business, and act accordingly.
- Whether or not you have an agent.
- Whether or not you have a publisher.
- Whether or not you're a #1 New York Times Bestselling author.
- Whether or not you've sold millions of copies of your book.
This course will show you how I did it... and give you actionable ideas for how you can do it too!
Here's to your success! I'll have the popcorn waiting!
