When I first started writing, I wrote screenplays exclusively. I actually completed 12 before I attempted my first novel. The first book I published was the fifth book I wrote. So, I’ve always considered rewriting some of those early books and publishing them through Kindle and my friends at CreateSpace, but my wife just prompted another idea. She asked me about my screenplay titled Never Living. It got mild, mild buzz many moons ago, even making it as far as the semi-finals round of The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ Don and Gee Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting. I almost got to thank the Academy! I had never considered publishing one of my screenplays before, but Kindle and CreateSpace make it so incredibly easy, I’m thinking of doing it. It’s fiction, but it is not formatted like a novel. I would leave it in it’s original screenplay format. And it is nothing like my Young Adult novesl or my adult titles. It is a contemporary story that is probably influenced by Woody Allen and Charlie Kaufman.
What do you think? Should I publish Never Living?
