Here's your honesty: it's all about luck and knowing the right person. I went to the American Film Institute and through there gave this particular script to a friend who gave it to a friend who gave it to a friend who got it to the director, who decided to mortgage his house to do it because he misunderstood all my themes. So if you have any film contacts, USE them, and if you live to network then your chances go up too.
I might just take you up on your offer about the screenplay. Not my world. It's great to see the book in screenplay form, though. Very cool.
So honestly, what are the chances of a sale that actually makes it to the screen?
Be honest. I can take it.
Thank you, Adam! Great you liked the book!
The best way to get an agent is to bombard the fook out of them with queries. It's all a numbers game. Targeting appropriate agents helps too, but I'd hit as many as possible...ten a day.
Thank you again
Thanks for the invite, Adam. (I'm trying to do the friend thang with people who aren't racking up hundreds of them just for the purpose of spam-promoting themselves). Plus, you've got a great edge on your voice for your writing. Checked out the description online of "The Pleasure Drivers" -- interesting casting of Lauren Holley, Meatloaf, Billy Zane. I'll have to check it out.
