This year started off with a bang, but every time I think things are slowing down, something else happens. I won’t go into details, because I don’t know too many, but A Bitter Veil has been selected as a semi-finalist in The Book Pipeline Competition. What’s that, you ask? Here’s what they say on their website:
“The 2nd Annual Book Pipeline Competition is searching for playwrights and authors with material well-suited for film or television adaptation. The winning writer will have meetings with Energy Entertainment (Extant), Benderspink (We’re the Millers, A History of Violence), Paradigm, and Lakeshore Entertainment (Million Dollar Baby, American Pastoral) to discuss further development and the potential for production.
Building upon the success of the Script Pipeline writing competitions, the 2nd Annual Book Pipeline Contest aims to continue discovering new talent and delivering unique, compelling stories to the industry–with the specific intent of getting projects on the fast-track to production.”
VEIL is one of twelve semi-finalists, and there were over 500 entries. So that’s pretty cool. Keep your fingers crossed — the winner is announced March 1, which is just around the corner.
