In the world of fiction, there is not always a ... moreconnection between a phenomenal story idea and the ability to write that story. While some very talented creatives are also wonderful writers, quite often the best ideas for novels and screenplays come from people who have trouble writing a simple essay. Here’s another all too common tragedy. Someone has a great idea for a book and they spend months or years perfecting every plot twist and craft a gorgeous work of art. How do they let the world know about their fantastic novel? They send it off to traditional publishers only to be told time after time, “Sorry, you’re not a celebrity or a published author so we aren’t interested in you”. Maybe they put the book on-line, send out emails to family and friends and hope for the best. Often they pay some bogus vanity publisher thousands of dollars to become a “published author” only to discover that they will do nothing to promote their book. Some pray that lightning will strike and the New York Times will review their book or Oprah will call. The net result of this nonsense is that precious time and money is wasted on futile efforts and brilliant creative works remain tragically hidden from public view. We are looking for great story ideas. More specifically, we are looking for fellow creatives who want to share their amazing talents with us. We offer the complete package - the writing skills and the marketing savvy required to take your great idea from the drawing board to the bestseller list. less
