    Author has command of his craft and communicates well

    I attended 2 of Michael's seminars at Screenwriting Expo '06 and this book contains the same 'special' quality of Michael's in-person class: He wants you to succeed. The book is an Instruction Manual for understanding, crafting and marketing your story. The material is digestible for beginners, valuable for all levels of writing, simple and thorough. There is a nice balance of 'Do' and 'Don't' advice. The 'Executives on Pitching' Section provides confirmation and flavor to the meaty material that precedes it. This book is not simply a compilation of quotes and buzzwords. Michael has command of his craft and endeavors with the heart of a mentor to infuse it in his readers. 2 thumbs up :)

    I LOVED this book, a MUST have for any serious Writer.

    I just bought Selling your story in 60 seconds and I could not stop reading until I was finished. (I finished it in under two hours) This book has helped me tremendously since I have read it and I have gained so much confidence in myself as a writer and in my work. I won't even begin a Synopsis anymore without this book by my side. This book is a MUST HAVE for any Serious writer. I just wanted to say thank you for putting it out there.

    The New Screenwriters 'Bible'

    As an aspiring screenwriter, Mr. Hauge's title offered me a 'guaranteed way' to get my screenplay read. Needless to say, this title sold me immediately. I finished reading it in one evening, and highlighter in hand, I went back and reread it again. It now closely resembles one of my college textbooks. I can't wait to implement Mr. Hauge's tips and suggestions as I enter the world of pitch fests, contests, and (hopefully) pitch meetings. When that time comes, I know I'll be well prepared and ready-to-go.

    Not Only for Pitching

    I must admit that I am a huge fan of Mr. Hauge's lectures, website, and CD's, so I was expecting great things when I purchased this book. I was not disappointed. After scanning Chapter 1 -- The Ten Key Components of a Commercial Story -- I immediately saw deficiencies in my script.(The one I thought was ready to send out!) By the time I'm finished applying this book, I am confident that my screenplay will be much improved and my query letter will have the focus it needs. I also plan on applying the information in the book to my novel.
