And I’m not just talking Christmas, Xmas, Kwanza, Boxing Day, Festivus, Hanukkah…
For screenwriters, the screenplay competitions for 2014 have come to an end and the ones for 2015 are starting to advertise for entries. In addition, this is a slow time for the buying and selling of screenplays (or anything movie wise) because of all the holidays.
So for we writers, we happy few, we band of brothers, ‘tis the time to finish our new screenplays, pilots, web series, short films, etc., or revise our already existing ones, and get them ready for the new year.
SO, GIVE YOU AND YOUR SCREENPLAY, et al., A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY GIFT:
RANTINGS AND RAVINGS OF A SCREENPLAY READER by moi, now available on Amazon http://ow.ly/F4RcN
NOT ONLY THAT: Rantings and Ravings of a Screenplay Reader will make a great stocking stuffer for a friend. And you don’t even have to purchase the stocking to put it in.
Yes, it’s true. You can buy this for a friend, brother, sister, father, mother, estranged relative, hateful ex, future brides of Charles Manson. It’s the perfect gift for those you love and those you hate and those you love to hate.
Rantings and Ravings… is my series of essays that arose out of my ten years plus experience reading for contests and a production company, as well as various observations on the state of the art of screenwriting and moviedom.

” Your book would be $3.00 well spent for 80 or 85% of the writers here…” Eli Donaldson
“Not just a nice perspective of a contest reader but some helpful … hmm, tips is the wrong word … insights (that’s better) into the writing process–again, the wrong word — reading of the writing process.” Tim Lane
“Information that needs to be heard.” L.A. Sidsworth
“Don’t be fooled by the amusing title of this fascinating book. Howard never actually rants or raves, but instead provides a plethora of valuable insights into the art and business of screenwriting…Quite a lot of bang for just a few bucks. And best of all, Howard’s encyclopedic knowledge of cinema, combined with a keen sense of humor, makes for a very enlightening and entertaining read.” Jeremy Carr
“I think this book should provide useful and practical advice to any aspiring screenwriter. While this is not a how-to manual on the art of writing, it should nonetheless be a good addition to most screenwriter’s libraries. Highly recommended.” Kays Al-atrakchi
