This was the first year I actually went to The Stoke Newington Lit Fest and I so wish I had more time that I could have gone to more. Went to an author panel talk which was actually hilarious and was really refreshing to hear that we all just stress about the same author problems. Gutted I missed the Harry Potter 20th anniversary party and the Game of Thrones quiz. Had my mother of dragons tee ready!
Back in March, I got an email from a lady asking me to meet with a film/TV company called Treehouse Digital. I figured why not? They may be good for The Author School book to film class. I meet the guys who were lovely and was really surprised that they knew so much about my book. We ended up having a really good convo and they were teaching me how to pitch to film companies etc. So maybe about a month later, I was thinking of them and the pitching notes, so I emailed and said could I pitch Emily? And they said yes. It took me two weeks to get my pitch together....and they loved it. They now have the exclusive rights to the book to get it commissioned for film or TV!!!!! Excited isn't even the word!
