Red carpet premieres. Stadium book signing tours. Emmys. Oscars. People’s Choice Awards. Binge-watching your story on Netflix, Disney, Prime. Fulfilling a life-long dream. Can you imagine it? I can.
That’s why we’re here. We give authors the tools to connect with movie and television producers and show them the right way to pitch their books to Hollywood and make their dreams happen.
Would your book make a great movie or TV series?
What We Do:
You've written a book. Or maybe several. And everyone agrees your book would make an awesome movie or binge-worthy TV. But you're self-published and un-agented. Without the powerhouse of a big NY publisher behind you, how can you hope to get your work noticed by film producers or studio execs?
Well, as an indie author, I can tell you, having representation isn’t the only way to make that dream happen. Intrigued? Keep reading.
You have three choices:
#1 Do all the work yourself
Dive into a course or book about how to write a screenplay, perfect your skills then write the book adaptation yourself. Struggle your way through it, trying to sell your script to studios yourself, though you have no idea how to do it effectively.
3 Try an effective and easier method
Discover a way to easily and authentically create powerful connections with key people in the television and film industries, who can help you create real results in the pursuit of your book-to-screen dreams.
Isn’t the third choice most appealing? If so, then this course is for you.
What will you learn in this course?
What to pitch (having a great story is just the beginning)
How to pitch (there's a right way and a wrong way)
Who to pitch (do you have a dream list of people you'd love to work with?)
How to connect with them (hint: it's about relationship building)
Who should take this course?
The dreamers and believers. It's for anyone who like me, has envisioned their books as a movie, or TV series, and has ever dreamed of watching actors bring their characters and story to life. This course will help you learn the easiest way to connect with key film and television industry people looking for new content. How do I know these methods work? Because I've successfully used several of them to sell the film rights to my first book series. And I continue to repeat the process for new series.
Authors and Writers who are willing to put in the time and effort needed to pursue their dream of optioning their books. In my experience, the film industry isn't a fast-moving wheel. It takes patience, perseverance, and a willingness to keep trying despite the perceived odds. I can't guarantee you'll see your book on the big or small screen, but I can tell you my method has worked for me, and similar methods have worked for other creatives also such as writers, artists, actors, musicians the list goes on.
Who shouldn't take this course:
Anyone who doesn't believe seeing their book on screen is possible. Anyone looking for a quick fix. Anyone not willing to put in the time, effort, and energy to pursue their dream. Anyone who is not willing to be unconventional and think outside the box (or color outside the lines, or insert chosen platitude here). Anyone who doesn't see themselves and their writing as a professional business, and act accordingly.
By the end:
You will have discovered a series of options that will help you connect with entertainment industry professionals actively looking for great stories to adapt.
It Doesn't Matter:
Discover why It's easier than ever to sell your story to Hollywood.
And why networks are starving for new content.
Frequently Asked Questions

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. And you'll also have access to any new content that gets added to this course. (like interviews with film producers perhaps)
How long is the course?
This course content will be delivered over eight weeks, with a new lesson being added weekly. And you are completely free to go through it at your own pace.
Couldn't I find this info myself online?
The short answer probably. I mean, there's nothing mystical or magical about what I did, or how I did it. But this course will save you countless hours and a lot of frustration too. And if the information was readily available, I don't think I'd receive so many messages from authors asking how I did it. All of that combined makes this course a valuable investment in moving toward your goals.
Why is this course so expensive?
I supposed that question is relative, really. It's sort of like asking, what are your dreams worth to you? I would have jumped at the $2400 course, to get me closer to my dreams. And I personally have paid thousands on courses with less content and material, because what they delivered was worth far more than the cost of admission. I feel that's true for this course also. Beta students agree that $500 is more than reasonable, considering what you stand to gain. The information in this course is worth well over $5000, but I’m offering it for just $500 because I want it to be in reach of anyone who wants it. Not to mention, the potential income from a film or TV deal would pay for this course multiple times over. My intention was to deliver a ton of value and information you can read, understand, digest, and use to get the results you're after.
How do I know this course will work for me?
Great question, and it's one I would definitely be asking before signing up for any course. The short answer is, you don't. I can tell you that before I took action, I wasn't sure I'd ever get to my dream of optioning my book. I believed it was possible, but I had no idea how I could make it happen. But since having figured it out on my own, I feel pretty confident in saying that it is possible for you. Because I've done it. You can keep doing what you're doing, and with some luck and you could reach your goal. But this is just another method, one that puts a little more of the magic into your hands. Patience has never been my strong suit, so sitting around hoping and waiting for something to happen well, I just couldn't do it. I need to get my hands in the dough and help shape and mold my dreams. So if that resonates with you, then this course will work for you, as it worked for me. Because to shamelessly quote Oprah Winfrey, what I know for sure is that Intention + Action = magic
