Surgeons who teach trainees how to perform various procedures have a favorite anecdote: ¿See one, do one, and then teach one.¿ Author-Manager Peter Miller has 'seen' query letters too numerous to count, 'done' more than a thousand book and screen deals, and has decidedly 'taught one' in his book, Author! Screenwriter! Several sections of Author! Screenwriter! are fresh after several re-reads. Why? Miller deals with contemporary insights and experiences, writes tight, and the contents have utility, especially for those in need of literary representation. Learn and live what he says, and you will succeed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

For any writer out there, Author! Screenwriter! is a 'must add' to your collection of informational books on the subject of getting published or produced. This book should be studied from cover to cover, entire chapters should be committed to memory and, we can only hope, that in the future the man known as the 'Literary Lion' will offer classes or workshops concerning his behind-the-scenes knowledge of the industry and how to get published. After reading this book I realized everything I was doing was wrong - ranging from writing proposals to finding the correct representative in such a large and diverse industry. Just four final words: Thank you, Mr. Miller.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
