Editorial Reviews

Review

“No one is better than Michael Hauge at finding what is most authentic in every moment of a story.” (Will Smith (Men in Black; Ali; The Pursuit of Happyness; Hitch; I Am Legend; Hancock))

“Michael Hauge is a story master, and this book is an absolute must have for anyone serious about telling great stories for the screen.” (DeVon Franklin, Vice-President of Production, Columbia Pictures)

“There are five essential books that every person who wants to write screenplays should read. One of them is Writing Screenplays That Sell, and the other four don’t matter.” (Terry Rossio, Co-writer: Pirates of the Caribbean 1, 2, 3 & 4; Shrek; Aladdin; The Mask of Zorro; Déjà Vu)

“The most practical and best single book on the subject.” (Hollywood Scriptwriter)

“The craftsman’s blueprint for anyone who is serious about writing or developing good screenplays.” (Roger Birnbaum, Chairman, Spyglass Entertainment; former President of Production, Twentieth Century Fox)

“If you’re serious about becoming a screenwriter, start by reading this book.” (Robert Mark Kamen, screenwriter, The Karate Kid and The Power of One)

““…When I pick up the phone for help, Michael Hauge is the call I make.” (Shane Black, Screenwriter: Lethal Weapon 1 & 2; The Last Boy Scout; The Long Kiss Goodnight; Writer/Director: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang)

“What Michael Hauge does seems quite simple but is in fact quite rare. He takes your ideas and makes them better.” (Christopher Murphey, screenwriter: The Karate Kid (2010); The Unsaid; Body of Proof)

From the Back Cover

For more than twenty years, Writing Screenplays That Sell has been hailed as the most complete guide available on the art, craft, and business of writing for movies and television. Now fully revised and updated to reflect the latest trends and scripts, Hollywood story expert and script consultant Michael Hauge walks readers through every step of writing and selling successful screenplays. If you read only one book on the screenwriter's craft, this must be the one.
