THE NEW SCREENWRITER'S SURVIVAL GUIDE: No one had ever won the world's two hottest amateur screenwriting awards - The Nicholl Fellowship from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences and the Austin Film Festival screenwriting award - in a single week. No one else had ever sold three pitches back to back over the Christmas weekend. And almost no one else had ever made her first sale as a complete unknown from outside California - and gone on to get it produced starring the then hottest young actress in Hollywood. People just don't do that. But Max Adams did. From guerrilla meeting tactics to finding (and firing) you agent, from maintaining "voice" to pitching and getting paid, the screenwriter crowned "red hot" by Variety who has been there, done that, and lived to talk about it tells you how to sell and get your screenplay made. And, more importantly, stay alive and successful for a long time afterward. "This is an accessible, smart, funny, insightful book that I would and will recommend to all scribes who come my way." Richard Walter, UCLA Screenwriting Chairman "Before you even think of marketing your script, read this book and change your screenwriting life." David Trottier, Author, The Screenwriter's Bible "If you want to understand how Hollywood works when you're the new kid on the block, this is the book to read." Greg Beal, Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting "Every writer should have Max Adams' advice in their arsenal."

Mark Del Savio is deployed to Vietnam ten days after marrying the beautiful but capricious Serena. The forced separation immediately after the nuptials puts an immediate strain on their relationship. Serena miscarries their child early on in Mark’s tour, which begins a downward spiral in their marriage. Mark gets run over by a US Army truck during the Tet Offensive of 1968 while working in the Long Binh Ammunition Depot, has a near-death experience, and begins to cope with life in a hedonistic fashion. This point of demarcation has him living life on the edge as if each day were his last and as one endless adventure. The war itself is simply a backdrop to this story that sometimes interrupts with rocket attacks, massive explosions, and the death of fellow soldiers. When he faces the reality of returning home, it turns out to be his biggest challenge of all.

What They Didn’t Teach You in Your Screenwriting Course Screenwriters, listen up! Breakfast with Sharks is not a book about the craft of screenwriting. This is a book about the business of managing your screenwriting career, from advice on choosing an agent to tips on juggling three deal-making breakfasts a day. Prescriptive and useful, Breakfast with Sharks is a real guide to navigating the murky waters of the Hollywood system. Unlike most of the screenwriting books available, here’s one that tells you what to do after you’ve finished your surefire-hit screenplay. Written from the perspective of Michael Lent, an in-the-trenches working screenwriter in Hollywood, this is a real-world look into the script-to-screen business as it is practiced today. Breakfast with Sharks is filled with useful advice on everything from the ins and outs of moving to Los Angeles to understanding terms like “spec,” “option,” and “assignment.” Here you’ll learn what to expect from agents and managers and who does what in the studio hierarchy. And most important, Breakfast with Sharks will help you nail your pitch so the studio exec can’t say no. Rounded out with a Q&A section and resource lists of script competitions, film festivals, trade associations, industry publications, and more, Breakfast with Sharks is chock-full of “take this and use it right now” information for screenwriters at any stage of their careers.
