From Book To Film

How would you like to have your book turned into a movie?

I sure would and want to share with you this competition.

The adaptation contest seeks published books (fiction and nonfiction), graphic novels/comics, and short stories for film & TV development. Both traditional and self-published material accepted. Judging criteria is based on concept originality, feasibility for adaptation in the current marketplace, and overall writing talent.

Launched in 2014 Book Pipeline connects writers with publishers, agents and the film industry.

Through two competitions – Unpublished and Adaptation – the company seeks both new and established writers.

I entered my two crime novels into Book Pipeline’s book adaptation competition.

Warning Signs

A psychological crime novel about obsession. Eugene’s research into his criminal mind is not about the why, but how to prevent his horrific crimes. Angie, a young woman starving for passion sees Eugene as her savior from a lonely life of caring for her heroin addicted mother. How far is she willing to go in order to save her relationship with Eugene and his promise for a future together?

Detective Van Ray is on a vindictive mission as he attempts to solve the murders of young girls in Youth Protection.

Their lives collide in a mixture of mistrust, obsession and ignoring the warning signs. A psychological crime novel about human frailty and loneliness.

Just Before Sunrise

Homeless Maya is drifting on the streets, grieving the recent loss of her mother.

When she is offered the opportunity to prepare a lake-side house to be used as a half-way home for delinquent girls, she doesn’t think twice.

She soon falls for Charlie, the attractive boy next door, who has a seriously dark side. She is drawn into his murderous schemes, doing anything he asks her to, risking her own safety for the promise of a future with him. When she finds herself party to murder, and she realizes he is more concerned with his older female accomplice than with her, she must learn to trust her instincts and use all of her courage to get out of their trap alive.

Just Before Sunrise is a story about loss, survival. About loneliness, betrayals and desires. It is also about the relationship between an older woman and a younger man.

Thank you for stopping by.
