At the last Black Writers Reunion & Conference, Director C. Mikki completed 50-60 hours of interviews with attendees for the Black and Write documentary, which offers an inside look at contemporary self-published authors and the business of publishing and acknowledges the impact of BWRC. This feature length film will run 70 to 90 minutes and includes appearances by ReShonda Tate Billingsley, Eriq La Salle, Bentley Kyle Evans, Dr. Venice Berry, Bryan-Keyth Wilson, Dr. Linda Beed, and many familiar faces from the BWRC family.
Indiewire.com reports, “Southern Gurl Productions is creating a documentary that offers a behind-the-scenes view of an American-based writers’ conference that has helped shape several best-selling authors and added their voices to the Black literary giants who made an indelible impression on us all.”
My name is James West, and I co-founded www.titledoctors.com, a naming firm and subsidiary of www.semantixcreative.com, that has worked for Hollywood studios since 2007 to the present. I now rep sold and unsold screenwriters whose works deserve your attention.
While there are great screenplays, few and far between find their way to the big screen. Many of those screenplays would make good books, if the screenwriters knew how to write books, which they usually don’t. Therefore, I am seeking authors who would be willing to partner with screenwriters to adapt their screenplays into novella eBooks.
Under my new banner, Scriplit, I’d like to hire talented authors that (change that to who) will turn screenplays into eBooks for Kindle, Kobo, iPad and Nook. You’ll receive an advance fee to begin, co-author credit, plus 30% of all royalties (digital and print). The screenwriter receives 50% while Scriplit receives 20% for consultation, marketing and editing the eBooks.
