Learn their special requirements and pitfalls * The final scenes: how to go out with a bang that will wow the Hollywood Reader * Still didn't get positive coverage? Inside info on what to do and how to do it Written by an industry insider who has recommended scripts that have sold for as much as one million dollars, this is the only book to show you what the Hollywood Reader wants to see.
