A NEW WAY FOR WRITERS TO TAKE THEIR STORIES FROM BOOK TO SCREEN
Some of the biggest screen hits of all time have come from the pages of a book – but aside from the top bestsellers, how can the film and TV industry find your story if it’s hidden out there amongst the millions of published titles? And how do they know that they’re the stories the audience wants to see?
BOOKSOFFICE IS OPEN TO ALL AUTHORS, NEW AND ESTABLISHED
BooksOffice has been created to find the best stories out there in a new way that shines a light on hidden and new talent with a mix of industry curation and audience participation – our system helps you present your story in a unique way for our entertainment professionals – and also opens up the chance for readers and viewers to help uncover future screen gems and decide what they want to see. It’s a level playing field for traditionally, Indie and self-published authors and a new platform for unheard voices. On BooksOffice, it’s not about how many books you’ve sold, it’s about how good your story is and whether it appeals to our audience of professional, readers and viewers. It’s been described as ‘an social entertainment world crossed with X Factor for Books‘ and it opens up a whole exciting new world of possibilities.
