Book Marketing Option Spotlight: Hollywood Screenplay

How much is it worth to you to get your book in front of the same Hollywood insiders who brought to life mega-hits like “The Hunger Games,” “Secretariat,” “The Sopranos” and “True Blood?”
Hollywood Screenplay from Outskirts Press is the ultimate plan for authors who want to see their book up on the silver screen. With this option, we write your screenplay for you and you keep all your copyrights. We do the legwork to put you in touch with our industry connections, including a production company and Hollywood producer. What’s more, your screenplay will be represented in an effort to secure optioning or purchase by a Hollywood studio. This is the ultimate solution for getting your book on the big (or small) screen. How’s that for exposure?
If you envision your novel as the next “Hunger Games” or “Harry Potter,” consider these valuable highlights of our Hollywood Screenplay option:

  • Your screenplay will be written by a professional Hollywood scriptwriter with experience adapting novels to script form.
  • Your finished screenplay will go through numerous reviews by both you and a credited Hollywood producer to deliver to you a final draft of quality that producers and directors will find appealing.
  • You’ll receive a full-length screen play specifically written to meet the needs of the medium you choose (TV, film, etc.) and the genre of your work.
  • The screenplay you approve will be submitted to a searchable Hollywood database, used by studios, executives and producers seeking materials to pitch, option or buy.

BONUS: An exclusive, 3-year effort will automatically be set into motion by a Hollywood production company to option your screenplay with Hollywood studios, producers and/or stars. Imagine: Your own screenplay making the rounds in Hollywood as a hot property!·

5 Reasons to Use a Self-Publishing Company in 2012

In my previous article, I mentioned that self-publishing requires creativity, effort and innovation in order to tell your story. Simply putting pen to paper is not enough – the final product should be personable as well as professional.

Ironic, isn’t it?

So most of us can write a memoir easily – one that can impress upon everyone that can relate to our story. But don’t forget – a self-publishing book should be as professional as a book from a publishing house.

Why does it matter? Simply put – readers have standards! No one would like to buy a book with an unprofessional cover, or a book with a poorly formatted interior. When you use a self-publishing company, you don’t have to worry about these “issues”. Why not? Here are the top reasons:

  • You don’t have to design your books yourself. We have designed and produced thousands of books, and you can benefit from this experience.
  • We provide you with necessary guidance to make sure your end product is unique and fits requirements.
  • You don’t have to worry about publishing and dealing with different agents for each task. We can do it all for you.
  • We make self-publishing affordable with different packages.
  • You can find your own voice. Instead of traditional publishing houses that want you to produce information that works for them, we suggest you to publish what works for you.

Self-publishing companies can provide a decisive edge to your final product.
