"This is an impressive and useful publication. Andrea has accomplished something many other writers might emulate: she doesn’t talk about anything she doesn’t know about. What she does know about is the aggressive and tenacious pursuit of a screenplay sale to an independent production company. Andrea’s introductory essays on ‘The Independent Producer’,’‘Breakthrough Tactics,’ and ‘Rules of the Game’ are brief, to the point, and accurate. It’s impossible to compile such a book without duplicating some information available, but there is not another book that includes all the features Andrea offers. This is a wonderful, useful, and practical guide for any beginning screenwriter, and of use to the not-so beginning writer as well. Andrea has accomplished what she set out to do, and that was to put together the book she wished she had when she began. Congratulations, Andrea, you’ve put together another important and sorely needed tool for writers. When this guide catches on, it should become an industry standard." — Digby Diehl, nonfiction writer and critic for several publications.
