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 this minisode, you will learn:
* Writers should re-consider chasing trends when considering writing a book that they hope will become a movie due to long writing and production timelines.
*Books with book buzz and press are at times favored by producers.
* A movie adapted from a book does not guarantee any automatic great benefits to the author in the form of finances, platform, or future book sales but is rather another part of your author business card that can be leveraged should you assertively choose to do so.
