Upcoming Book:

17 ways to sell your screenplays

You finished your screenplay.

Now what?

My second, upcoming book in “Be That One In A Hundred” series answers that question.  It shows how to use 16 marketing strategies writers have used to launch screenwriting careers.  (“Get an agent” isn’t one of them.)

This book also reveals and shows how to use one marketing approach which, as far as I can tell, no one has ever tried in screenwriting. However, this method has been proven to be effective in every other selling situation in commerce.

I’ve used it to sell about $10 million in intellectual property over the years.

Good news: it costs very little money. It’s mostly just labor on your part.

The critical factor – “how to tell whether there is a market for your screenplay” – is also discussed in depth.

So if you want to be the first to the gold rush, buy the book as soon as it comes out. Sign up for my announcements if you want to be sure to receive the notice when I publish this marketing secrets sequel to “Be That One In A Hundred.” –Author Bill Donovan
