Here is the first look at the next book on the publishing list: Unscripted. This is a story I wrote a couple of years ago. It’s a new adult contemporary romance, with a strong, smart, talented female lead.
Rylie Cates is an aspiring screenwriter living in Maine. The story begins with a phone call telling her that the screenplay she submitted to a film festival in Los Angeles was accepted, meaning that she gets a free trip out to LA to produce a fifteen minute short based on the script, as well as a ticket to attend the festival six months from now.
From there, everything becomes a sort of whirlwind with the small-town gal moving to Tinseltown to pursue a career in screenwriting. She gets a front-row seat to the business that we call show. She learns a little about how things work, how to get a good price on a script, how to pick an agent and a manager, and a few inside details about the business thrives, and how to thrive within it.
Looking back through it now, it seems a little dated, even though it was only written two years ago. I wrote this story at a time when I had just graduated college, and was unemployed in a poorer economic situation than we have today. I was looking for a story about somebody–a nobody, point in fact–who had done something right. This small-town girl from Maine had written an amazing script. She was going places. I wanted to write a story of success at a time when I felt I was having trouble finding that success for myself.
Despite some chronology issues compared to the time it was written to the time I’ll be publishing it, I think I will leave it as it is within the timeframe it was written, and add in some dates to point to the setting in time. If I can evolve an economic theme, it might be worth letting it live in the time it was written. If it doesn’t seem to make a difference going back through it, maybe I’ll just update it. Cross that bridge when we get to it, right?
Back to the plot, in spite of her writing brilliance, Rylie has always been a bit clueless about love. This story follows her evolution and transformation as a kid out of Maine into a major name among Hollywood screenwriters, as well as her experiences with love and relationships out in the City of Angels.
Once I get into the editing process more and I pin down some finer details, dates and deadlines–and especially after I’ve gotten more intimately acquainted with this story again after two years of sitting on my computer–I will post some updates on how it’s coming along. Also, if I change the title (which I probably will) and when I determine a release date, I will post that info here. I’m shooting for an early 2013 release at this point, accounting for NaNoWriMo and time enough to finish my current project/work in progress, but a lot could happen between now and then that could set that back.
The reason I picked this one to work on next is because I have really fond memories of writing it. It was one of the stories I really enjoyed working on the first time around, and it was one of the few that came pretty easily from start to finish, and I look forward to getting back into it and turning it into a book I hope you’ll enjoy reading when it comes out.
