A rare day indeed

I thought about not even posting about this, since nothing at all concrete has actually happened, but, then again, a day like this is so rare in a writer's career, I decided I'd like to at least mark it.

I spent a good hunk of today dealing with not one, not two, but three different inquiries about the availability of film rights. Miraculously, all three inquiries were for different books, and all three happened to be books that are not currently under option.

Of course, nothing might come of any of these -- most such inquiries ultimately don't end up going anywhere. But it's fun to daydream about the possibilities (and at least one of the producers is actually drafting an option agreement right now, according to my film agent in Hollywood) ...

Wow, things happen in three's, right?

Hope one of them pan out for you. Wonder which books they were.

Here's hoping we'll see some Neanderthals on the big screen. My wife is always asking from "more Ponter."

Thanks VERY much, J0hnnyb! HOMINIDS is indeed under option, and a screenplay has been written ... I have my fingers crossed!

I can hear the director now... "Needs more Neanderthal"

I'm actually infinitely amused right now going through a casting director's database while trying to imagine various actors and Ponter.
