An award-winning independent film maker has approached Dorothy and me about making a film of IN DARKNESS, DEATH, our YA mystery that won an Edgar award. This would be exciting, to say the least, but experience has told us that interest in making movies is not the same thing as making movies. However, Larry (the film maker) has been sending us links to sites that tell us about the movie business. The latest one was a post by a man who has produced several movies, notably PRETTY WOMAN, the Julia Roberts movie where she plays a prostitute (highly glamorized prostitute, as you may recall.) Anyway this post is rather inspirational, not only for film-makers but for writers, so I thought I would post the link here, in case anybody feels the need for encouragement:

The company that published my two new YA novels, Booktrope, has gone out of business. Seeking to make lemonade out of lemons, I have republished the two books on CreateSpace, and they are available in paper and e-book (Kindle) form on amazon.com. Best of all, I'm offering both books in both formats at a much lower price. If you want a good summer reading book for boys (COME SIT BY ME) or girls (BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WITCH FOR), pick up one or both at a bargain price.
