Today I signed a movie option for my zombie book The Last!
It is not big money at this stage, but the potential is there. I’m excited. Its a contract we’ve been negotiating for a few months now.
I’ve learned a thing or two about movie option contracts in the process. I had legal advice from the Society of Authors after becoming an associate member which was very enlightening.
Now it is done, and The Last is in the producers’ hands.
They say the vast majority of optioned novels/screenplays never make it to the screen. Fingers crossed The Last will be one of the few that do ;).
