Feverishly


December 6, 2007
Okay, there's a lot more to this story than I'm going to tell you right now, but...

I've been working on a new novel with a new character.

A movie producer had been shopping the Derek Stillwater novels around--still is, for that matter. My agent sent her a partial manuscript of the new novel.

She loved it. 

Several of the producers she showed the Derek Stillwater novels to liked my writing a lot, but have had some reservations about yet another film being made about terrorism. So she showed at least one of them the partial.

Then she came back to my agent and I and asked if there was more. And if I could write a synopsis of the entire thing, because at least one of the producers really, really liked it.

So I did.

Then the producer sent them to the other producer and he read it and they had a meeting and then she got out of the meeting and called my agent who called me...

They want me to finish the manuscript by the 17th (about 100 pages to go) so he and his partners can read it over the holidays and make a decision.

So if I'm a bit scarce for a while, that's why.

Cheers,
Mark Terry

Good luck! Just make sure to get your money up front! It's my dream to eventually sell out to Hollywood and be able to tell everyone how I *hated* the movie they made of my project while sipping Pinot from my rooftop deck overlooking the ocean.
