I sent my unbound galleys back to my publisher with my teeny tiny trims and revisions. I think Crafty TV Writing
reads well. I was surprised how much more information it seemed to have than my first book, without feeling overwhelming. It won't be any fatter than Crafty Screenwriting
, but the writing's denser.
Holt, my publisher, should be getting the bound galleys in a few days. These are prototypes of the book, with a plain cover and lots of typoes. We'll send these off to TV writers and network execs who might be willing to give us a blurb or two. (Writers, that is, who I haven't already hit for an interview!) One kind reader is getting a copy to David Mamet, who's writing TV these days. I'm hoping to convince Amy Sherman-Palladino to give me a quotation. And thank you to Stephen Gallagher, Bridget Carpenter and Ken Levine, who have graciously offered to read the book.
Your further suggestions in this department are welcome. Also, if you know any journalists, whether mainstream or in the biz, who'd like a review copy, please let me know. The book's coming out in June.
We're getting there!
