Hollywood Movie? My book?
I found it quite interesting and a bit of a shock when a marketing representative contacted me and asked about developing a movie trailer for my second book, “You Can Rise Up”. He said it has the themes of a Hollywood movie; murder, suspense, mystery. It really does. The novel starts out with readers learning of the burial of the father of the main character. At that point, we aren’t sure how he died. We realize the main character (the daughter) feels guilt, but we don’t know for sure if she killed him, and if she did, by what means. In a later chapter we discover that he was murdered, but we don’t know by whom, and we don’t know the motive. All we know, is that the daughter has either a direct or indirect involvement. I can definitely visualize such a story playing out in a Hollywood film.
