Overview

Screenwriters are true writers, having proved their story, skills, and determination on the tight canvas of screenplays. Now, determined to find their audience and another way to the silver screen, some screenwriters are turning to novelization.

One of the #1 ways to interest any agent or manager is by having a large library of completed work that demonstrates your range as a writer. That means not both a diverse selection of genres and a variety of mediums, too. Not to mention, countless screenwriters have gotten their start as novelists – just ask William Goldman or Nick Hornby. Bringing your creative work to the film industry is a challenge, so why not give yourself the advantage by becoming a master of all trades?

The key transitions for screenwriter-to-novelist are:

How to showcase your story-telling strengths
How to translate screenwriting skills to novelist craft
How to jump-start your novel-writing career

Editorial Reviews

Laurie Ashbourne Sacks
Just a hair over a year ago, I had the pleasure of reading (and writing about) a unique approach to getting your material noticed. ADAPTING SIDEWAYS is a book that easily takes you through the process of adapting a screenplay into a book...I was particularly taken by this...because I was in the middle of that exact process when the book came out. It really is worthwhile to learn another way to give your material more selling power, so check it out!
