Experience the Book-to-Screen PitchFest Violetta Armour: “PitchFest was totally awesome.
There we are in New York City in Times Square at this beautiful hotel…” Chelsea Ashe: “You got to interact with so
many authors that you wouldn’t meet otherwise and hear everyone’s stories, and then you
also have first-hand experience of networking with both the Author Solutions staff and then
Hollywood producers that you really can’t get anywhere else.” Shalisha Bynoe: “This entire event was very
informative. I mean, I’ve learned a lot and I felt encouraged and inspired to actually
continue my journey as a writer.” Envision Your Book as a Film Lisa Angelo: “It’s basically where you go
and you talk to different studio personnel. You pitch the story to them to see if they
want to take it and turn it into a movie or series.” Chelsea Ashe: “And that’s actually what I
thought was the most rewarding piece, is just seeing what they thought about it and how
I can improve.” Derick M. M. Lewis: “The information that
they give you is really good and beneficial. They tell you how to take your story and mold
it into something that somebody actually wants to hear and listen to.” Prepare to Pitch Your Book Lisa Angelo: “When it comes to quickly telling
your story to somebody that you’ve never met, a lot of writers are not very good at that.
This helps you get past the jitters, this helps you get past the fear.” Violetta Armour: “I would recommend PitchFest
to any author because it requires you to really think about your book. ‘What’s the essence
of my story? What’s the theme? How can I, in two minutes, capture somebody’s attention?'” Pete Liebengood: “Now once people ask me,
if I’m out in public or I’m selling my book, ‘What’s it about?’ I got it down now. I mean,
I can do it in a minute and a half. Boom! And I’ll be right on. And that, I think, gives
them confidence that, ‘Hey, this guy knows what he wrote!’ Imagine Your Opportunities Lisa Angelo: “I did have three people ask
for the story to make it into a movie. And I think that there are so many different options
and opportunities that before I started this process, I never even imagined. And at this
point, all I can say is that anything’s possible.” Chelsea Ashe: “You know, it’s something that
started as an idea, well actually it started as a bad date and turned into idea, turned
blog, turned book. Now, because of PitchFest, turned option. So, I’m really just excited
to really see what the next step is and where this option can go, and what the future holds.” Spaces are Limited!
