Author Solutions, LLC, the world leader in supported self-publishing services, announced proudly today that Xlibris title “Accidental Droning,” (ISBN: 978-1503537590) by Pete Liebengood, has been optioned for a possible film adaptation by a Hollywood producer after being discovered at the 2015 Author Solutions Book-to-Screen PitchFest in Los Angeles.

In “Accidental Droning,” the protagonist, Bo Granger, begins flying his private drone to occupy himself after losing his job. One day, Granger’s drone camera accidentally captures the drowning of a woman. Upon discovering the footage, Granger weighs his moral oblgation to turn the video over to authorities against possibly endangering his wife’s political career and his own well-being. Almost immediately Granger becomes the target of a hit man, false sexual assault allegations and the desires of an ambitious reporter who draws him into an extramarital affair.

Liebengood becomes the second former PitchFest participant—since July 2015—to have a title optioned as a result of the opportunities brought about by PitchFest events. Author Solutions hosts its next Book-to-Screen PitchFest in Las Vegas in June 2016—details coming soon.
