Advice on turning your book into a movie.

February 20, 2017 | By | Reply More

The journey from receiving a phone call from a Hollywood team who are keen to turn your novel into a blockbusting movie, to marching up the red carpet at the world premiere of the movie-of-your-book can be a painful one – and there’s no guarantee of a happy ending involving a private jet and your own private J.K. Rowling-sized castle!

In this podcast from crime author Mark Dawson, he interviews novelist Cal Moriarty.

Cal’s years working in the film business in LA means she’s well placed to advise on what to do – and what not to do – when you pick up that call from Hollywood.

Cal discusses good deals, bad deals and percentages for budding authors.
