Potential Movie Rights Contract

Potential Movie Rights Contract

 

Potential Movie Rights Contract

Several years ago I had a dream, a crazy dream, but with encouragement from friends and family, I decided to go for it. I wanted to write a children’s book series. With the convenience of the internet, I began making lists of all that I needed to learn.  The list seemed insurmountable, but as with any list, if one takes a step at a time, it is possible. I wrote the book, found an editor and published on Amazon.com.

The Mystic Princesses were more than a dream!

 

Reviews help sell books, so I sought feedback from trusted organizations. I entered my books into the Writers’ Digest Self-Published Book Awards contest. And I submitted them to IndieBRAG, LLC for review. The reviews came back and I was ecstatic with the messages. They listed a few things that could be improved, which I incorporated.

And then the email of my dreams came. I woke up one morning a few months ago and found a message that a studio was interested in a potential movie rights contract.  I’m honored to have been considered. With a little fanfare and a lot of grateful feelings, here is the message:

Dear PJ,

I am trying to track down the film/TV rights to your Mystic Princesses books. Do you have an agent or manager who handles the film/TV rights on your behalf? If so, would you be so kind as to forward me their contact information? We have a database for film/TV rights to books, and one of our clients was interested in your series. I can be reached at e****er@r*********er.com. Thank you and best wishes.

Next, I corresponded with the firm that contacted me, as well as found an agent and an attorney willing to assist with negotiations. However, it didn’t work out, but I thought I’d share the message anyway.

So my message for you is: follow your dream! You never know where it might lead if you don’t try. And if you do try, with a lot of hard work, surrounding yourself with professionals in the field, research and some luck sprinkled in, you could hit the jackpot.

My Writing Process

The Mystic Princesses arrived in Hawaii last week, after finishing their trip to Alaska. They are staying at Breanna’s house in Volcano’s National Park on the Big Island. Today, they’ve gone to the see the black sand beach and are talking about PJ LaRue as they wade along the shoreline enjoying the blue-green waters.

“I think she’s crazy,” Catie blurted as she scooped up a handful of black sand and let the grains slip between her fingers.
