The Beast Within Movie


The Beast Within is Optioned for Film

     Two weeks ago I wasn't even thinking about making my book into a movie. I mean sure I would have jumped at the chance but my main focus was on writing my next book. Then the ball started rolling in a totally different direction.

     I was contacted by producers who where interested in my work. A copy of The Beast Within was sent over and last week a conference call was set up between myself and the producers. They loved the book and wanted to offer me a contract optioning The Beast Within for film/TV.

     Being so new to the game I didn't even know what an "option" was or meant... okay I'll be totally honest I didn't even really know what a producer did. I mean I'm sitting at my computer writing about dragons, zombies, elite humans, and forbidden love every day. So after doing as much research on google and bing as I could I asked around and was referred to a lawyer.

     After a very educational conversation with the lawyer I decided to move forward. Yesterday I signed a contract giving the producers an exclusive option for film/TV rights for The Beast Within.

     I'll keep you all informed on the step by step process as the project moves forward. And I want to thank everyone for the support that has and is being shown for The Elite Series. Without such a solid fan base I don't think any of this would have been possible.
