Reviews - What do customers think about Selling Your Story in 60 Seconds: The Guaranteed Way to Get Your Screenplay or Novel Read?
Solves a big problem, surprisingly good Sep 15, 2008
I've always been a big fan of "How To" books, especially ones like "Shaking the Money Tree" and "Writing Down the Bones," where a highly accomplished professional shares insider tricks and tips that I am able to use to solve a pressing problem.
Well, I recently had to pitch an idea for a new book. The subject (Citizen Journalism) was new for me, and I didn't know how to communicate my passion for the book and the importance of the subject. Then a friend told me about "Selling Your Story In 60 Seconds." I read the book in one afternoon, and using what I'd learned was able to pitch the idea successfully, four days later.
"Selling Your Story in 60 Seconds" is surprisingly well written and easy to read. Whether you are pitching a book, a script, or pitching an idea during fund raising--this book is essential.
good book, informative Aug 31, 2008
This book on how to sell your story has an interesting perspective and will make you think of important facets of marketing your story you probably would not have thought about. Worthwhile.
Author has command of his craft and communicates well Mar 14, 2007
I attended 2 of Michael's seminars at Screenwriting Expo '06 and this book contains the same "special" quality of Michael's in-person class: He wants you to succeed. The book is an Instruction Manual for understanding, crafting and marketing your story. The material is digestible for beginners, valuable for all levels of writing, simple and thorough. There is a nice balance of "Do" and "Don't" advice. The "Executives on Pitching" Section provides confirmation and flavor to the meaty material that precedes it. This book is not simply a compilation of quotes and buzzwords. Michael has command of his craft and endeavors with the heart of a mentor to infuse it in his readers. 2 thumbs up :)
Irena Tully Feb 7, 2007
Writers are lucky to have this book available - it provides them with much specific & essential guidance on their quest for perfection and success. And it makes things easier for us - film company executives - as well, because dealing with writers who have been enlightened by this book saves us time, compared to dealing with those who choose the shaky road of "trial & error". Thus this book is invaluable to both Writers and Executives. [...]
A Must Have For Any New Screenwriter Feb 4, 2007
As an aspiring screenwriter, Mr. Hauge's title offered me a "guaranteed way" to get my screenplay read. Needless to say, this title sold me immediately. I finished reading it in one evening, and highlighter in hand, I went back and reread it again. It now closely resembles one of my college textbooks. I can't wait to implement Mr. Hauge's tips and suggestions as I enter the world of pitch fests, contests, and (hopefully) pitch meetings. When that time comes, I know I'll be well prepared and ready-to-go.
