Books Optioned for Film

The benefit of knowing authors is that a filmmaker  can ask them to option their books for adaptation to film. And, some of the best movies are based on stories by authors from smaller publishers. The value in that is clear. At the big book expos worldwide production companies send their literary people to find a diamond in the rough story for adapatation to film. Nightengale Press experienced that happenstance firsthand.  When a book is selected, few moviegoers will read the book first, but to the author's benefit, many may choose to read the book once they've seen the movie. Most of all, the filmmaker  is free to build on the tension, enhance the mystery, and heighten the comedy or romantic moments all for cinematic effect.
