Hello folks, helluva sh*tty volatile and toxic time we are enduring, but stay quarantined dont take risks, use the old dettol and disinfect your hands regularly, and you will overcome this nasty bug...stay positive and call someone even if its just to bullsh*t. I am quite literally on page 80 of writing novel number 14 and its a stotter, DM Code, Captain William Kidd, Admiral Adam Duncan and Captain George Anson, the irony being Kidd was defo
murdered by the State, and his other legacy of Holy Relics reaching Oak Island but not where you all think....fun to be a scribbler..Andy

Then now its decide on what
level of press release, will hang off for now, this can get expensive and complex, audiences across the globe require different approaches mainly for the book rather than the screenplay.....time to chill and think..

Today is a milestone day, the Agent has delivered the Screenplay and the primary legal stuff is done...waiting on the film gurus to engage in the contract stuff after their guidance and support over past few days, not sure how I feel, but suffice to say this project is just beginning after nearly four years since sitting down and writing the bloody thing. Great fun and sense of achievement.

Having to change ISBN for legal screenplay copyright reasons due to request from Film Production Company who have sent letter of intent...prior to moving forward, QA tomorrow, book cover will change slightly, no longer a self published author. Literary screenplay company have to be acknowledged in legal terms as another requirement.

07/12/2019

intense interest so far....albeit have been told that an International Press release will still go out to: 500 Film executives as we have to present options to the wider industry. Now that will be good to experience. Early Birds catch the worm as they say..one year ago this company started the ball rolling....its a complex game.

06/12/2019

The those who are interested in the way that this novel is being accepted and the screenplays impact in the world of media, Interest has already happened just after a few days of official release. Have received positive interest from film production people. Will keep you posted Andrew

Folks as the screenplay is in the ether somewhere and hopefully lands where it is intended to land, I was asked by some folks about the storyline, if you have the novel then the screenplay is going to be 60% of that version, the final edit is in fair order and I am excited by the end result. A film might be a different animal entirely. Have posted a simple 3 min vid for practice..LOL

Lengthy call from USA yesterday, we have approved sign off on screenplay for release, Agent will compile extensive Press Release, then I have to think about Radio Interview USA style directed at Genre experts, theres a cost to that, then a round of pitching Novel Screenplay and model to in house interested Producers then they will pitch an attack to the wider external industry..so in reality the agent does his thing and I await .......as I understand this is hit and miss and determined by the mood of the film industry.

In case you wondered what a screenplay contract looks like,  I can now publish as part one of the project is completed.

Thanks from me to the FM of Scotland for taking time out from her hectic schedule and signing a copy of my novel, this is pivotal for me at least in the knowledge that so much research and effort has been worthwhile. An admirable benchmark. Once the Guardians hit the media film company as planned things should get exciting.
