Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) February 16, 2006
Fearless Literary, a highly respected provider of manuscript critiques and consultations for authors, agents, and publishers, announces the addition of a screenwriting critique service provided by Los Angeles producer Alexandra Leh.
After ten years of providing critiques and consultations on books and manuscripts to authors, agents, and publishers, Fearless Literary is pleased to announce the launch of a screenwriting assessment service provided by Alexandra Leh. Currently an independent producer in Los Angeles, Leh spent ten years at CBS, during which time she served as a movies & miniseries program executive. She has evaluated hundreds of screenplays, treatments, and manuscripts as an industry insider, and will now bring that expertise to clients of Fearless Literary. Her ongoing relationships with literary agents, network and cable executives, as well as film studios and production companies, will enable her to pitch worthy screenplays that come to her attention.
The critique & consultation service provided by Fearless Literary has a record of discovering noteworthy projects and writers. In 2003, a critique of Gary Renard's THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE UNIVERSE led to the publication of that property by Fearless Books, which sold 25,000 copies before placing the book with southern California publisher Hay House in a six-figure deal. The book now has over 100,000 copies in print and regularly ranks in the low hundreds on Amazon.com. Fearless critiques have helped several other writers find agents or publishers, including Linda Alice Dewey, who self-published her "true ghost story" AARON'S CROSSING at the advice of Fearless founder D. Patrick Miller, and recently placed it with Hampton Roads of Charlottesville, Virginia, at Miller's recommendation. Scores of other authors have been assisted in refining their manuscripts and sharpening their writing skills. As an editor or consultant, Miller has helped prepare projects published by such houses as Viking, Doubleday, Warner, Crown, Simon & Schuster, Jeremy P. Tarcher, Hay House, Hampton Roads, and John Wiley & Sons.
"Alexandra Leh brings both a new kind of expertise and a new synergy to the literary services of Fearless Books," Miller comments. "Over the years I've occasionally had to turn away requests for screenplay critiques because I don't know the field, and other times I've wondered where I could send accomplished manuscripts that might have screen potential. Now both of those opportunities will be handled in-house by an experienced professional who, like myself, is currently working in her industry."
Reservations for Alexandra Leh's screenwriting critiques, as well as the book manuscript critiques normally handled by Fearless, are currently being taken via e-mail. An overview of Fearless Literary services is available at http://www.fearlessbooks.com/Literary.html.
