5.0 out of 5 stars A serious must-have for any screenwriter, novice or pro 28 May 2008
By Travis Heermann - Published on
If you're an aspiring screenwriter, there is no more comprehensive list of markets than in this book. Nowhere else are they gathered in one place. Producers, agents, managers, and contests. If you have a screenplay and want to sell it, you need this book.
