It’s a Mystery! Which of these novels deserves to be a Hollywood movie?

Last month, we launched our Book Your Trip to Hollywood Treatment option, providing the fastest, most effective way for self publishing authors to get their book(s) into the hands of a credited producer, launch an exclusive Hollywood optioning shopping window, and receive a professional Hollywood Treatment.

In celebration, we have hand-picked 10 mystery novels from among our Outskirts Press published titles. Which one of these books deserves to be made into a Hollywood movie or television series?  Click on the book covers to learn more about each book, and then cast your vote in the public poll below.  Your vote could help an author get his or her book made into a movie or TV show! The winning author will receive a 10% discount on our Hollywood Treatment option.

A Hollywood Treatment is a thorough outline or creative roadmap for a literary property’s adaptation to screenplay and is a crucial component if you want your book to be taken seriously by Hollywood.  A Treatment enables an author to demonstrate to entertainment decision-makers how his/her story might unfold on screen and helps Hollywood truly envision the material as they consider a purchase/option of the property (book).

If you have a book that Hollywood should consider, the Hollywood Treatment option just may be your (movie) ticket, but in the meantime, here are the 10 MYSTERY contenders, in alphabetical order:

How to submit your book to Hollywood


“Your book would make a great movie!”

How often have you heard that, or thought it yourself? We might be able to make it happen!

Outskirts Press has launched its new Hollywood
Book-to-Movie Treatment
option, available on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you have a published book (with Outskirts Press or elsewhere), this is the fastest, most direct method to get your book in front of a Hollywood producer AND get a Hollywood caliber Treatment that will begin making the rounds in Hollywood at the same time.And if you don’t yet have a published book, Outskirts Press can help you get published, and then help you with a Hollywood caliber Treatment or even a full movie screenplay. You must have a published book to order either of these Hollywood services.

Hollywood Treatments are the creative framework used by busy Hollywood decision makers to transform your book into another medium. In short, treatments are a fast, efficient way for Hollywood executives to picture your book as a movie or television show in a “language” they understand.

With the Hollywood Treatment, you will receive…

  • A 7-10 page creative adaptation (treatment) by a screenwriter that focuses
    on story and characters
  • Up to 3 different industry loglines: short catchy phrases that describe
    your story and quickly capture the attention of potential buyers
  • Hollywood producer assessment
  • Rationale (why choices/decisions were made so they can be addressed by the author)

Warning! This option is an investment, only meant for authors serious about pursuing their goal of turning their book into a movie or television series. For instance, if the producers like your treatment and book, an exclusive 3-year effort will automatically be set into motion by a Hollywood production company to option your book with Hollywood studios, producers, and/or movie stars.

Just imagine: Your own Hollywood Book Treatment making the rounds in Hollywood as a hot property. You don’t have to lift a finger.

Your treatment will also be submitted to a searchable Hollywood database, used by other studios, executives, and producers seeking materials to pitch, option, or buy.

How much is it worth to you to get your book in front of the same Hollywood insiders who, combined, have worked on some of Hollywood’s hottest properties, including:

  • The Hunger Games
  • The Blind Side
  • True Blood
  • The Sopranos
  • … and many others


If you are serious about turning your book into a film or television series for broadcast or cable, this is the option to consider. We also offer full screenplay ghostwriting, but that is available only after you have a Hollywood treatment.

. Remember, your book must be published first, so that is the first step.

AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT & SUCCESS STORY
“My experience with Outskirts was great from start to finish! I was treated with respect. The staff were professional at all times, and responded to my questions very quickly. I was impressed also wit their art department. They nailed the concept I was looking for on the first try. I haven’t sold a lot of books on line, but I have sold copy after copy on my own.

I have received many compliments and positive reviews that have been posted on line. I have another completed manuscript, as I work on #3,
and I plan to use Outskirts again. I would eagerly send anyone with publishing hopes to Outskirts.”

Joscylan Adams was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Reading and writing have been her passion for more than thirty years. Due to a heart condition, she was forced to prematurely leave a job she had held for more than twenty years. During this already difficult period, she suffered the loss of her beloved niece, Syria, and then her father, nine months later. These tragedies gave her a greater sense of the fragility of life, and she decided to begin a journey of living her life’s calling. Her motto is: “Do things while you can, before you want to, and can’t.” Joscylan now lives in Fresno, Texas. This is her first book – and she plans many more to come!

Run our company Poll – Which new service option should we offer?

Last September we ran a poll asking you, our social community friends (who also happen to be our current, past, and future authors at Outskirts Press) what option you would like to see us offer to help you reach your writing, publishing, and marketing goals.  There were three choices:

  • Amazon Featured Book of the Week, which received 40% of the votes
  • Social Media Market Research, which received 50% of the votes
  • Author Apps, which received 10% of the votes

As a result of your votes, we launched both the Social Media Market Research option and the Amazon Featured Book-of-the-Week option.

So once again we are asking you to help us help you. With The Avengers already breaking records and movies like Men in Black 3The Dark Knight Rises, and the Amazing Spider-Man just around the corner, we are about to experience one of the biggest blockbuster movie seasons ever.

We want to give authors an opportunity to experience that phenomenon from the inside, by helping you on the path to turning your book into a movie. To help in that quest, we are considering three new service options that focus on one particular step of getting your book from page to screen:

  • Hollywood Action Plan – We will submit your book to a Hollywood production company where a credited Hollywood producer will provide feedback for a 3-5 page “coverage” analysis — the industry term for determining if a book has potential for movie or television adaptation and if so, in what format.
  • Hollywood Treatment – We will submit your book to a Hollywood production company where a treatment writer and credited Hollywood producer collaborate on a 7-10 page Treatment for your book. Treatments are the documents Hollywood insiders use to make purchasing/optioning decisions because they touch upon the major factors (genre, audience, characters, plot) while being quicker to read than a screenplay.
  • Hollywood Screenplay – Using your book as adaptable material, a credited Hollywood producer and Hollywood screenwriter will ghost-write a Hollywood caliber screenplay for you in industry standard format and presentation. Screenplays vary in length depending upon format (movie/tv), genre, and content, but are typically 100-130 pages in length.

In all cases, exclusive efforts to option your material to Hollywood is immediately set into motion for your convenience.  Sound good?  Which option would you like to see first?
