Default First real option!

Just excited to share that I've optioned my first script (for real this time). I kind of optioned one before, but that was one of those $1 options - this one isn't

More to come!

What made this different? I used Ashley Scott Meyers' (from the Selling Your Screenplay podcast) service, and it was an adaptation of a book - CRASH, by Sean Platt and David W Wright (of the Self Publishing Podcast). Also, fairly low budget - psychological thriller/horror.

Congratulations.

And rock on to Ashley, as well. He has a great podcast. I'm excited to see his new indie.
