The Various Paths to Getting a Novel Adapted for Film or Television

The road to getting your novel adapted for film or television can be a bumpy one, as writer and producer Craig Miller explains. If you have worked with a traditional publisher or have an agent, they may have relationships with agencies or studios in Hollywood. If you do not have that connection, the process becomes harder, says Miller. He suggests authors work on securing reviews, which are read by studios and agents hoping to find the next big story. If a positive review of your work makes it into a major publication like the New York Times or USA Today, that’s all the better. In the end, Miller reminds authors that there are a lot of different routes, but none of them are going to be easy.
