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.

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.

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.

Okay folks, the novel and screenplay QA QC are completed. The underwriters had to assign new screenwriter - personal reasons, the handover is complete, Alpha books confirms Pre Market feedback states that this work Genre is a super hot potato currently and we have 3 x interested parties who have formally tendered an interest. Again folks this is volatile territory for me and is really a fair degree risk for Author and Publishers. Will keep you posted, as the Project Manager appeared to be well motivated..

cant help thinking how correct my assumptions have been and clearly supported by historical fact..,the UK partnership as an unequal of unions running an empire has quite literally fallen apart, the EU countries most of which we have invaded or have been at war with dont care if we stay or leave. next step .Scotland clearly has a new footing to step onto on the world stage as the southern nation implodes. A nice background for a film.
