Hello families!!! I have some amazing news for all of you! I got a text message earlier today from Stephen Harding, saying "Call me ASAP". So I did, knowing it was something important. I now have the pleasure of announcing that the book, "The Castaway's War" has been signed by Gold Circle Entertainment for a major motion picture deal!!! The papers are signed, the ink is dry and production will begin soon. I don't know who the director might be, no idea of a cast or where they may film, but soon as I have these details I will so happily pass them along. This is the notice Steve posted on Facebook:
Stephen Harding and Da Capo Press are immensely happy to announce that the motion picture rights to THE CASTAWAY'S WAR have been optioned by Paul Brooks' and Scott Niemeyer's Hollywood-based Gold Circle Entertainment, producers of the "Pitch Perfect" and "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" franchises. News of the deal first broke in Publisher's Marketplace, and additional details will be announced in the coming weeks.
I have been straddling Cloud 9 all day and am amazed I haven't pitched off! So for now, take some time to digest this information. There will be more to come and I can't wait to see how all this plays out!
