Advice for Authors on Adapting Their Book for Film or Television

The entertainment industry has a lot of competition, but also plenty of possibility, says Herbie J Pilato, a writer, producer, TV host, and president of Television, Ink. He advises writers to not just wait for someone to commission them. If you believe in your story, that’s enough reason to write it. Pilato believes that when you have an idea for a book, show, or anything else, that idea came to you for a reason — it’s a “whisper from the universe." If you don’t pursue that idea, you’re doing a disservice to yourself, the potential viewers/readers you can impact, the story, and the universe.
