CALLING ALL AUTHORS SEEKING SCREEN DEALS FOR THEIR WORK. Before signing a book deal with a publisher read carefully your contract spelling out you retaining your rights for a movie or TV series/special deal. Some publishers will want to keep screen rights, including new mobile apps, solely for themselves…so beware please. Many authors miss this and find out later when it is too late to develop their book for visual media to the Hollywood creative community. See us at http://www.hollywoodbookpublicity.com for more details on this crucial point authors need to be very aware of.
Self published authors too should take heed of this as well, even without a publisher, since navigating the entertainment biz can be daunting for those in untested waters here seeking a film or TV adaptation.
