Jack Eadon is launching an aggressive Hollywood campaign to sell properties to the highest bidder. The 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.
Hot Literary Properties for Sale
What could be hotter than a book/film series based on the Seven Deadly Sins—one sin for each title in Eadon’s series. A Consequence of Greed’s title says it all, while Head Trip is about one super twin seeking to murder the other, and in Lacey’s Day, lust turns into generosity and love. Far from formulaic, Eadon’s mixed genre novels are filled with drama, coming-of-age stories, romance, corporate intrigue, and the supernatural. Usually only Shakespeare can offer that kind of dramatic variety.
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. His media blitz includes a full page ad in the Hollywood Reporter during awards season, national press release distribution, a speaking tour, and his newly launched website: http://www.TheAmericanDramaSeries.com.
The website includes an image of Eadon welcoming readers to a movie theatre’s concession counter, and the web pages are a virtual multiplex of 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.
3-D Animated Surprise
A bonus of Eadon’s website is a private showing of his new 3-D animated video. One of Eadon’s most popular songs for the band Khazad Doom was “Stanley’s Visit to Kerkle-Morff” written and recorded in 1971-72. Now it is an animated 12-minute video, with outstanding illustration by Denis Proulx and video production by Chris Hatcher. Eadon will be featuring the video as a private showing at his website before aggressively marketing it to Disney Pixar, Dreamworks Animation, and other studios. A special treat awaits those who review the video for Eadon.
Before The Wolf of Wall Street, There Was A Consequence of Greed
Move over, Scorsese, and let Eadon show you true greed and corruption. A Consequence of Greed—now in its 5th edition and celebrating its 30th anniversary—is prime Hollywood fodder. In fact, its original title was Revenge of the Wolf. Coincidence? 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: James Post’s spirit ascends to the heavens in a swirl of colored sparkles, only to have his ghost return to haunt Sheila Hickman. Later, a half-naked Sheila Hickman dramatically taunts a storm of baseball-size hail and vengeful lightning that ultimately electrocutes her. Eadon’s recording studio experience—from his days with the cult rock band Khazad Doom to owning a California special effects advertising photography studio—results in a written soundtrack, from the clunking of James Post’s brother’s beheading, to the chirping of Texas crickets in the lazy orange Cersicana dusk.
“The special effects and cinema magic required for this book to be adapted to film properly wasn’t available thirty years ago when A Consequence of Greed was first conceived,” Eadon said recently. “This movie, (ahem, book!) is made for the camera. It’s bigger than life with 3-D developed characters. And now Hollywood’s technology has caught up with my vision.”
Interested producers, screenwriters, and media personnel can contact Eadon regarding the film properties for his books by visiting http://www.TheAmericanDramaSeries.com and submitting one of the book project query forms. A forty-eight-hour response is guaranteed. Remember, when it comes to obtaining these hot Hollywood properties, a little greed—by getting to Eadon first—can be a good thing.
