Having now read most of Rogan's ScriptBully advice books, I definitely think this one's his best. Even if you don't need help creating convincing characters, writing rockstar dialogue, or simply formatting your script, you probably still don't know what the heck you should be doing to get your script sold.

For just $2.99, this book packs in a lot of excellent tips. (Example: Sign up for the 2 week free trial of IMDb Pro and make a list of the contact info for every director, producer, actor, etc. that fits into your genre so you can stop wasting time on message boards in search of this info.) It's also got great advice for those of us who don't happen to live in Hollywood, but don't want to come off as "outsiders," as well as some best practices for social media usage. While I've been reading about Twitter etiquette for a while now, I had never really thought about applying the 80/20 principle to the number of fun vs. self-promotional tweets I put out there, but it makes complete sense.

Even if you're not planning on writing and selling a brilliant script, this book contains some great networking advice that can benefit anyone eventually looking to sell their latest novel, CD or widget. If there's one thing that's too important to screw up, it's networking. Rogan offers great advice for both the shy and the self-involved to bring more to the table than "Buy my script!", as well as a helpful dialogue to try out on industry gatekeepers.

Best money I've spent this week!

This book will change the way you look at selling your script. Writing is only half the battle. This book gives you the more important half. The sell.

This was a fun and helpful book to read! NO script writing book is perfect or flawless, but I find Michael's book to be easy to read and follow, humor is used here and there, and you and kinda hear him "talk" to you while reading. I only wish it had a lot more tips and idea beyond what was presented. I do find myself checkout out the highlights and notes that I make in my Kindle App on my android phone from this book. It saves me time in re-reading the gems and ideas! I actually purchased more of Michael's books here in Amazon (for my Kindle App in the phone) as I like his style and presentation and humor in his books. I hope he creates a bigger, more detailed, book, perhaps even in a 'workbook' format with pages from scripts and including his mark ups, corrections, and teachings! Good idea, right Mike? ;)

I've been working for a few years now, trying to get my start in the new publishing paradigm. With services like Kickstarter, Twitter and Smashwords turning the industry on it's head, it's hard sometimes to know how to get your foot in the door - or even what the hell constitutes a door anymore.

I loved this book - although it's geared towards the film industry, the points that Michael Rogan makes in the book point out how to make the best use of your time and legwork in order to get your script into the hands of people with some pull. He covers everything from business image, to the micro-pitch, to what festivals to attend, even how to go about the dreaded business of finding an agent. I'm actually surprised at the amount of insider information that he's sharing here. For the price, it's a steal.

Rogan may not cover every angle available, but what he does cover is worthy of your time - especially at that price (the price earned the 5th star)! It's a quick, fun read and if you're like me and hoping to someday break into the 'Biz,' then you have to pay attention to what he has to say (especially in regards to the changing face of networking).
