For Author Eadon, Overnight Success Is ‘Consequence of Persistence’

Share Article

Jack Eadon has been a cult rock star, an internationally known author, and now, he seeks to bring his seven-book series, in which Americana meets the Seven Deadly Sins, to the big or small screen by selling his film rights to the highest bidder.

ack Eadon is launching an aggressive Hollywood campaign to sell properties to the highest bidder. The California author of the seven-book American Drama Series feels it’s time to bring the series to a new generation of readers in a big cinematic way.

A Life of Which Movies Are Made
Eadon has lived the kind of life from which movies are made. From being born a super-twin—a 1 in 40,000,000 chance—to being a cult rock star, an author, and the survivor of a brain tumor and five brain surgeries, Jack Eadon has lived a life like few others—a life that would make a perfect biopic.

For the last thirty years, Eadon has been transforming his diverse experiences into his seven-book American Drama Series, and now he is ready to woo the silver screen with his magnum opus.

Americana for the 21st Century
Nothing could be hotter for Hollywood than a series based on the Seven Deadly Sins. Eadon’s American Drama Series takes the virtual life of Marcus Ramsay from womb to tomb in search of the love of his life. As a whole, the series explores how each of the Seven Deadly Sins can shape a person’s life as he grows and matures, through good times and bad, including health challenges, romance, and tragedy.

Ultimately, The American Drama Series is Americana for the twenty-first century, complete with the grimness of Poe and Hawthorne, the complexity of Faulkner, and the clarity of Hemingway, and like Steinbeck’s Okie dialect in Grapes of Wrath, Eadon maintains the authentic central Texas dialect throughout. Whether it’s HEAD TRIP, in which one super twin seeks to murder the other, or LACEY’S DAY, where lust turns into love, Eadon’s pages are filled with drama, coming-of-age stories, romance, corporate intrigue, and the supernatural.

Knocking on Hollywood’s Door
Eadon is now launching an extensive advertising campaign for the sale of his book-to-film rights to lure directors/producers and other media moguls, including a full page ad in the Hollywood Reporter during awards season, national press release distribution, a speaking tour, and his newly launched website,, which includes an image of Eadon welcoming readers at a movie theatre concession counter. The website is a virtual multiplex for future screen content, complete with character sketches, synopses, elevator pitches, and book trailers. Two titles also have television treatments and there’s a mini-series treatment of A CONSEQUENCE OF GREED. Tickets for sale to the highest bidder.

30th Anniversary Special Edition
A CONSEQUENCE OF GREED—now celebrating its 30th anniversary with a special fifth edition to be released on April 25, 2014—is the perfect example of prime Hollywood fodder. The plot: Murdered man returns as another; exacts revenge. The characters: dark and tragic, light and comedic, sultry and homespun. The venue: big or small screen, film, or miniseries.

Eadon’s cinematic writing marks A CONSEQUENCE OF GREED’s every scene from the moment James Post is transported into the afterlife to the rowboat suicide scene where half-naked Sheila Hickman dramatically taunts a storm of baseball-size hail and vengeful lightning. Eadon’s recording studio experience—from his days with the cult rock band Khazad Doom and owning a California special effects advertising photography studio—results in a written soundtrack that includes the clunking of James Post’s brother’s beheading and the chirping of Texas crickets in the lazy orange Cersicana dusk. This movie, (ahem, book!) is made for the camera.

‘A Consequence of Persistence’
When Eadon was recently asked, “Why are you knocking on Hollywood’s door now?” he replied, “It’s a consequence of persistence.” Eadon believes his persistence will pay off. “Maybe it isn’t so weird that I’d be knocking on Hollywood’s door,” he said. “After all, from being born a super twin to surviving five brain surgeries, to having created a rock album worth $2,000/copy to collectors—I guess I’ve been blessed with a little uniqueness in my life! That’s quite a combination.”

While waiting for Hollywood’s call, Eadon enjoys life in nearby La Quinta, California, where he continues to write, communicate with his fans, and live a peace-centered life. His companions in this retreat are his wife Karen and their “fur-children,” Pookie the dog and Caspurr the cat.
