Minisode: The Book-to-Movie Journey, Mistakes Made, and Your Questions Answered, Pt 1
Show Notes

Welcome to this three-part miniseries  about the book-to-movie process. Contrary to what I mentioned in the recording, the next two will be published this week! :)

I'll be sharing some of what I learned when my memoir, Pieces of Me: Rescuing My Kidnapped Daughters, became Stolen By Their Father on Lifetime Television, and mistakes I made (and nearly made) throughout the process. I'll answer questions some of you have asked, relying on my experience and my research that included speaking with a screenwriter, a producer, an author-turned screenwriter, and an author who signed too many rights away when optioning her memoir.

In today's minisode, you will learn:

*My journey from memoir to movie.
* That film rights are intellectual property that you may decide not to include in your contract with a publisher.
* That authors benefit by having a film or literary agent in their corner when considering optioning their books.
