  • Why Hollywood is like a conveyor belt and ways that you can get your story to the front of the line…
  • How drawing 1 simple line can massively impact the success of your script.
  • Why having a screenplay is actually bad for most writers to have and how it can permanently ruin your chances
  • The story elements that every producer and director look for that increase your chances of successfully selling your story to Hollywood

    Sell to Hollywood:

How To Tell If Your Story Idea Will

Sell To Hollywood For Big Bucks

Why should you be there?

Because contrary to what you might believe it’s never been easier to sell your story or novel to Hollywood and see your story come to life on the big screen.

Not only that but my business partner and webinar presenter Ken Atchity is a world renown and bonafide movie producer as well as a literary agent with many New York Times bestselling authors among his bevy of clients.

In fact, when you register you’ll also discover:

  • Why TODAY it’s easier than ever to sell your story to Hollywood… but it must contain certain elements that most authors are oblivious to… you’ll get in the inside track during this training
  • The counter-intuitive path from taking an idea to a book to a New York Times bestseller to sold a story in Hollywood production.
  • Why so many novelists fail to ever sell one of their books to Hollywood… and how you can avoid their mistakes
  • Master producing the key document that actually sells a story to Hollywood (hint: it’s not a book)
  • The “tune-up” most stories need before they will sell to Hollywood
  • Plus, much more…
