Okay, folks. Here's the new Crafty TV Writing
cover. What do you think?
I looked at the other cover on your flickr account also. I like graphics of the one you posted here better, but prefer the text of the other. It's succinct. I'd rec' shortening the text on this a bit to something like the other, like:
"A pro writer's guide to making it in television"
"Making it" implies both respect and money. So does "getting paid to write great...", but I think it's too wordy for a cover.
I'm someone who buys these books -- I have your first one.
Yeah, this one definitely works for me.
Looks cool to me. "Cousre I haven't seen the other ones...
Nice! It's punchy but less aggressive than the other cover.
I also think that it's not as "detailed" an image as your other book, Alex. I think that they can bring it closer to that and make it look more like the companion volume it is...
Quit teasing us Alex....when can we buy it?
I've got the copyedited ms sitting on my desk...
OHHHH...what do I have to do to get an advance copy?
It's good. Be happy!
I like it Alex and am looking forward to the release (I love the first one).
I do have a question for you. What is the average page count of a one hour drama? I am working on a spec for Supernatural and I've timed out the show at 40 minutes. I tought that a drama should fall between 47 and 50 pages, but the WB material seems shorter.
Sorry late on this, been writing. :)
"...to getting paid to" still makes my teeth hurt. But I guess I lost that battle. :)
Looks like a clip art'ish computer monitor not a TV. Needs a background picture of sorts. And that Arial'ish font is quite dull. I'd have a TV in a curvy-fish eyed style with 'tv static' as background. Something with spice, this is quite sleepy.
