Bloomington, IN (PRWEB) April 16, 2012
Author Solutions, Inc. (ASI), the world leader in indie-book publishing, announced all book reviews completed between April and December 2012 by ASI’s review services partners will be sent to Meredith Vieira Productions (MVP) as a means to evaluate the books for Film or TV development consideration.
All book review packages available through ASI’s imprints are conducted by Kirkus Indie Reviews, ForeWord Clarion Reviews or BlueInk Reviews to maintain objectivity. Completed book reviews will be sent directly to MVP, where they will be evaluated by a company representative.
“Meredith Vieira Productions is always in search of unique and smart material for film and TV, and partnering with Author Solutions has provided us enormous opportunity to source new writers and content,” said Amy Rapp, MVP’s executive vice president. “And access to highly credible editorial reviews from ASI’s review partners makes identifying the best materials even easier.”
Last month, ASI announced a partnership with Meredith Vieira Productions that will provide authors with greater opportunities to have their books optioned for film and TV show consideration. MVP will work with ASI to identify and review concepts in line with their company’s production goals.
“At ASI, we are always looking for new and exciting ways to help our authors promote their books across all types of media,” said Keith Ogorek, senior vice president of marketing at Author Solutions. “This is just another reason why we believe now is the best time in history to be an author.”
MVP is a production company headed by Meredith Vieira, one of America’s favorite TV personalities, best known for her work on “Today,” “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” and “The View,” and her producing partner Amy Rapp.
