"We all know that for every Joe Esterhaus who made $3 million for writing "Basic Instinct,"
there are thousands of people who never sell their scripts at all. But this author has walked the walk, and in this guide she really talks the
talk. Two of her screenplays, written on spec, are now under development at
major studios; Twentieth Century Fox bought one of them for $360,000.
"Become a Screenwriter," she's shared her knowledge in a compact,
easy-to-read format that should become the Bible of every fledgling
screenwriter. Her section on submitting scripts to big
studios versus independent production companies is great; her section on how to pitch a script is even better. And when all else fails, she provides
alternative ways to "break in."
So here's the answer to the question all budding screenwriters want to know:
is this guide worth it? You bet your life it is. It's so jam-packed with
information that it's a steal at twice the price. In fact, armed with this
book, you actually may be hobnobbing with movie stars before you know it!"
"This guide helped open my eyes to the true realities of the industry. I am so grateful I ran across this I can't think of how much time it saved me. If anyone wants to get started in the screenwriting world buy this - it's a great guide! "
