Re: On pacing of queries and response times

Are you sure you're looking at literary agents that actually rep screenplays? This is true of novels and non-fiction books but I've never seen this in regards to screen works.

Re: James Franco sued

That's not a "witty" retort; it's a threat. A genuine, malignant threat.

Re: Book coverage

Have you tried skimming the reviews of the books you're interested in at Amazon? Or at Goodreads? This might give you...

Re: What about pen names?

Publishers? You don't mean screenplays then but novels?

Re: Pet Semetary

All "ranting" aside, I'd say the same (until I read Pet Semetary), along with the profound impact of the short stories Ray Bradbury and the great novels of William Faulkner.

Inspirational stuff,...

Re: Pet Semetary

Favorite?????

I read that book as a kid and was so disturbed by it that I NEVER read another Stephen King book until well into adulthood (or even went near his section in the book store). I even...

Re: Adapting scripts into a novel series

Sounds like an ambitious and fun endeavor! But I do have a question for you: did your agent or your publisher request a book series proposal? In my experience, they are very different things.

Nah, just carrot sticks.

Re: Mysterious email. What would you do?

Aren't they a management company? Were they trying to poach you as a client or did they not know you already had a manager? I thought they represented scripts; I didn't know they paid to option them....

Re: I own the most valuable literary I.p.

Delusional?...
Or troll?
Or very young?
Or taking too many classes at community college? -- after all, having to juggle 11 syllabi is, perhaps, 8 semester classes too many.

Re: Story Developer seeking representation

The answer to this is quite simple: let the agents or producers know you have $$$$$$ (unlimited funds from billionaires) on the table and the doors will fly open.

Re: Amazon Studios 45 days - Still evaluating?

Yikes! Those are good results. I submitted a pilot -- it was downloaded once, and was in Evaluating for over a year and then went straight to a pass.

You must have stuff that piques their interest...

Re: Any way for an amateur writer to do this not in LA?

Ah, sorry about that -- but you're right, of course. And I agree: Publishers Weekly is the best deal tracker, which is somewhat comparable to DDP in that regard. So, yeah, Will, good suggestion.

I agree that DD is amazing and unlike any other site in its orbit...

But THERE IS an equal site for novels (and other kinds of fiction/non-fiction writing): Absolute Write Forums here:...

Re: Inktip

Hey... are ya'll talking about the wanted listings on the Preferred Newsletter or about posting the logline of a script you've written in their magazine?

Just curious.
