About the Book
Learn how to sell your screenplay!

Have you written a screenplay but donít know where to send it?

Do you have a great idea for a movie or television show but have no idea how to sell it?

Have you written a screenplay and submitted it to a few production companies but have not heard anything back from any of them?

Have you ever thought that being a screenwriter would be a great profession but you have absolutely no idea how to get started?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, this book is for you. I moved to Hollywood more than a decade ago and began my career as a screenwriter. When I arrived in Hollywood I didnít know anyone or have any idea about how to sell a script. Through trial and error I slowly learned how to get my scripts read by producers and directors. In the last decade I have optioned more than 20 screenplays and sold several, including Dish Dogs starring Sean Astin, Matthew Lillard, Brian Dennehy, and Shannon Elizabeth. This book will teach you everything you need to know about how to get your screenplays read, optioned, sold and eventually produced!

What you will learn in this book:

You will learn the basics of writing a sellable screenplay.

You will learn how to write a professional query letter so that production companies will request your screenplay.

You will learn how to write a concise synopsis for your completed screenplay to include with your query letter.

You will learn how to make a professional submission to production companies.

You will learn how to find production companies who will read material from new writers.

You will learn the "ins" and "outs" of an option contract once a production company wants to make your script into a movie.

You will learn how to get an agent or manager.

You will learn how to avoid scams by unscrupulous people who pray on the hopes and dreams of aspiring writers.

You will learn the truth about many Hollywood screenwriting myths.

In other words... you will learn everything you need to know to sell your screenplay!

It took me a long time to gain the knowledge that I outline in this book. I have tested it and it has worked for me and gotten many of my scripts optioned and some of them sold!

All of my produced credits and optioned scripts (more than 20) were achieved using the techniques I will teach you in this book. When I started out, I was an absolute beginner with no friends or family in the entertainment industry. Everything I have accomplished I have done using the techniques I will teach you in this book.
