Self-Publishing Authors Can Now Capture Hollywood’s Attention

Outskirts Press offers all authors (self-published and otherwise) two unique opportunities to garner the attention they deserve from Hollywood producers with a brand new suite of services named Book Your Trip to Hollywood.  The first two services within the suite include:

  • Book-to-Hollywood TreatmentA Hollywood standard 7-10 page treatment is often a prerequisite to optioning a book or even having a screenplay written. Most producers or studios base their opinions of a work on the treatment.
  • Hollywood Screenplay: Ultimately, in order for a book to become a movie or television series, a screenplay must be written.  These scripts conform to Hollywood formatting standards based upon type/genre and the copyright remains with the author (not the screenplay ghostwriter).

“Many authors dream of seeing their books on the big screen or as the basis for a long-running television series,” states Outskirts Press Manager of Author Support Elise Connors. “The ‘Book Your Trip to Hollywood’ options can help make that dream a reality. You don’t even need to have published your book with Outskirts Press, although we’ll give you a discount if you did.”

These services solve a real problem for many authors who dream of making it big in Hollywood. In fact, just getting Hollywood’s attention is nearly impossible, but with the Book Your Trip to Hollywood suite of services from Outskirts Press, authors receive turn-key, full-service assistance with the push of a button. And with each option, authors receive the feedback and/or participation of a real Hollywood producer and production company; the final results are added to a Hollywood database that is perused by industry professionals for new projects; and exclusive efforts to option the author’s book are immediately set into motion. The author doesn’t have to lift a finger!
