If my query is not good enough, as an idea, then why should I waste my time selling my book and screenplay ideas?
The book offers quite a few revenues to selling your writing, but those places are as usual swamped; list is full; not taking on new clients; overloaded etc.
To open a door to Hollywood will have you not taking one step in before it closes.
It has a great "key" system which highlights useful websites and essential advice. It gives a good insight into the functioning of the major studios, independent production companies and television networks.
Overall, it's a very practical text which demystifies the Hollywood system and provides paths for new writers wanting to break in. "Opening the doors to Hollywood" is a useful and inspiring text.
