TK Kenyon has written a guest post over at Read/Write Web for indie novelists, but movie makers can benefit from it also. Kenyon states: "To sell your book, (1) inform people that you and the novel exist, (2) interest readers enough to buy your book, and (3) build a relationship to keep them coming back for more." There is no reason we can't replace the word "book" with "film", and run with it. So read, and start running!

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." You've got to find what you love -- Steve Jobs "You've got to find what you love.

First-time Novelists Look to the Net for Success *Writers Write ...
The novel Jerry Lee Davis slaved over for seven years finally saw the light of day on April 2 when it went live on the virtual bookshelves of the Internet.

Art of staying hungry
His first novel was a publishing phenomenon but John Birmingham has spread his wings to embrace a broad range of genres, writes Nick Galvin. John Birmingham's housemates from the He Died with a Felafel in His Hand era would scarcely recognise him these days. The patron saint of a thousand foetid share houses and a man who once completed a coast-to-coast dope-smoking odyssey (for his book Dopeland ) is now looking eerily corporate. This impression is only enhanced by the fact we are talking in the boardroom of his publisher. Well, perhaps corporate is a little strong but he certainly looks every bit like a successful, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
