07 Aug Who Is Beatrice?
I wanted to share some good news – today I signed a three-book deal with Hay House Publications to write a trilogy I’ve been working on, currently titled The Sphere of Attention. The first book in the series, entitled Beatrice, will be released in 2013. And yes, for those of you that know, the novel Beatrice will be based on my screenplay with the same title. Usually, people write a book first and then get asked to do the movie version… I, of course, do everything backwards.
Beatrice is a story that I have been living with for over 15 years. With that much time for her to swim around inside my skull, she has grown up quite a bit and has sprouted two sibling stories. Needless to say, I have a lot of work ahead of me and I am more than excited to start digging in. This is the project I’ve always wanted to do, both as an artist and as someone who cares about larger philosophical questions.
So to end, I’ll just say that I’m very grateful to Hay House for believing in me and I hope to make the most of this opportunity. I will try to regularly post information about how it’s going with the book and film. Hopefully, you all can help me introduce Beatrice to the world.
