I broke in by selling a pitch to TBS way back in 2001. I still remember that day. How nervous I was. In hindsight, I was lucky to sell my pitch at all, as I'm pretty sure I just rambled along with no thought to how my story was being presented to Tana Nuegent Jamison, the then head of the network. If only I'd had this book back then, I think I would have probably wet my pants a lot less and had far more confidence in what I was doing.
This book has everything a writer looking to break into the business can ask for. It's concise, well-written and clearly explains the reasoning behind the unwritten "rules" of Hollywood. After more than 15 years of having an agent and being "in the business", reading "The Hollywood Pitching Bible" still felt like a lightbulb going off over my head. This is an essential part of any writer's library.
Ask yourself a question: "Is the price of this book worth the career I want?"
Then listen to your answer.
