Think your novel would make a great movie? Want to try your hand at writing the screenplay? Award-winning author Pauline Baird Jones now shares her years of expertise in a series of writer's handbooks, including Adapting Your Novel for Film, a helpful guide for turning your book into a film. A book and a movie are two entirely different mediums. Successful adaptation requires trimming down a story--it's not always easy! Strict formatting guidelines also must be followed or your script won't even be considered. Pauline tells you about the "secret handshake" and gives many examples from her own books' adaptations. She also includes valuable information on protecting your work, and pitching your ideas to Hollywood. Dozens of helpful website links will help both new and experienced writers. Let Pauline save you time--add this handbook to your library today.
