Hey - I Wrote a Book
So first off, clearly I need to post more. Apologies. It's been a long two years, for many reasons.
Touching Blue is still in development at Amazon. I did a couple of passes, and then they brought in another writer. But last I heard, they are still throwing money at it, which is good. If it's ever made, I get a big chunk of cash, which would be nice.
In the meantime, I wrote a couple of other scripts that are currently out getting eyeballs on them (hopefully).
And just for fun, I also wrote a book. The link is here.
I was contacted by a publisher in New Hampshire, who had the idea of doing lightly novelized versions of unproduced screenplays. So I novelized one of mine, which is literally just taking a screenplay and retyping it into prose form.
The only thing I added was a few "he says" and "she replies". It's all in present-tense, and very lean. It's meant to be read in about the time it takes to watch a movie - perfect to read on a plane flight.
It was an interesting experience, and I'm happy with the result. And the result is sort of eye-opening - it's definitely miles more readable to the kind of non-industry people (like my parents) whose brain hurts when they try to read a screenplay.
And hey, I wrote a book. It's on Amazon. And it didn't cost me anything.
So now that's crossed off my bucket list. And if you happen to pick up a copy, and say a few nice words about it on Amazon... Thanks :-)
