Personally, for me the answer would be no. But seriously. If you know any aspiring film students..or maybe YOU ARE an aspiring film maker…or maybe you know somebody who wants to shoot a web series? Seriously. Do you? Then you may want to send them here to read this post. I have a book that has been sold and/or downloaded almost a hundred thousand times. This book did over 10,000 units in two days the first time I ever gave it away free using Amazon’s KDP program. I actually think this book lends itself well to becoming a movie.
Zomblog is really what started it all for me. Granted, I never intended it to be published. It was simply a warm up exercise as I got my writing chops in shape to pen the DEAD series. That is not to take anything away from the Zomblog saga. Overall, it is pretty good, and I did learn a lot in the process. Even better, some very constructive reviews came along that helped shape me into a more proficient writer.
This series was my first entry into the KDP program which, as I mentioned before, led to a single weekend download extravaganza of over 10,000 copies of book 1. That opened the door for me as an author and the rest is history.
So, now, I would like to make an offer to a YouTuber, aspiring indie film producer, or group of college kids looking to put something together for class or just to get the practice. Zomblog is perhaps the easiest of my titles to convert to film. So I am offering it up. No advance fees, no licencing deals or hurdles to jump through. I figure the exposure this book gets through you will sell a few copies for me. That is good enough. If you see a profit of $10,000 then we can discuss money, but I wouldn’t want a single dime until you reached that point. And I mean pure profit. All the expenses would need to be covered from what you spent making the movie. But we can work those details out if you decide to do this.
I am living my dreams because of this little book. If I can give somebody a nudge by allowing them to use it, I consider it a win-win.
Interested? Then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “filming Zomblog” in the subject line.
I may not hear from a single soul (and as of yet…I haven’t gotten a sniff)…but if you don’t put it out there, nobody will know. Right? So, if you know somebody, or you know somebody who knows somebody…or, if you are that somebody…drop me a line.
