Step 1: Write a damn good book.
Step 2: Pour your heart and soul into making a fantastic serialized audiobook version.
Step 3: Relentlessly connect with your fans
Step 4: Get paid big bucks in movie options by Warner Bros.
That’s what happened for J.C. Hutchins. I’ll let him tell you the rest:
I’ve been sitting on this news for months, but just now received the green light to share: the 7th Son trilogy has been optioned by Warner Bros. for motion picture development.
This is gobsmackingly awesome news, as I — and likely you — always dreamed of the possibility of seeing the likes of John, Father Thomas, Kilroy2.0 and John Alpha on the big screen. We’re one step closer to that.
To be clear: Warner Bros.’ option of the 7th Son trilogy does not guarantee that a film series will be made, but the deal entitles the studio to exercise the right to do so sometime in the next three years. The possibility alone is terrific.
Damned terrific, Hutch. For the rest of you: Go listen to the 7th Son trilogy now, so you can say “I knew him when…”.
