PubliSHAMErica goes HollEwood

by the way, before you pay them to enter you in anything like this, check your contacts! You have already given them a percentage of whatever you may earn from movie rights.

Dear author:

For you, our spectacular HollEwood package!

A. Remember that Amazon Studios/Warner Bros. Pictures announcement we made a while ago? PublishAmerica authors' scripts are now beginning to show up at the Amazon Studios site for that "best script" contest!

As Amazon Studios said two months ago:
            "It is the goal of Amazon Studios to produce new, full-budget theatrical films based
            on the best projects and it will give Warner Bros. Pictures first access to the projects
            Amazon Studios wishes to produce in cooperation with an outside studio."
The Amazon Studios deals include rights payments of $200,000 for winning submissions, and a $400,000 bonus "if the movie makes over $60 million at the U.S. box office". It also awards prizes of $20,000 for the two best scripts in a month even if they don't become a movie. See for all details

Do as many other PublishAmerica authors already did, and get into this film contest now! Activate your HollEwood package. After we have received your activation you will be contacted about adding your book's list of characters and a film synopsis. Then we submit it to Amazon Studios for their contest. They award prizes monthly!

B. Join the e-book revolution. You have read the reports from Amazon, Google, and Barnes and Noble, and the massive e-sales that are now taking place.

As part of our HollEwood package we will also convert your book:
                  1. to an e-book for Amazon's Kindle,
               2. to an e-book for Google's brand-new Google eBookstore,
                  3. to an e-book for PublishAmerica's bookstore,
                    4. to an e-book for Barnes and Noble's Nook e-reader.

Activate your $99 HollEwood package today: go to, click Add to cart, choose a shipping option to start the activation. In the Ordering Instructions box be sure to mention the title of your book. If your book has not yet been released, add "Pre-release!"
By activating this HollEwood package that includes your book's submission to Amazon Studios you authorize PublishAmerica to act on your behalf and you agree that this constitutes your consent in writing.

You probably have enough here to do a blogdump, where you copy everything into one document and submit it for publication. Why not do that - and submit it to Publishamerica?

Because we aren't petty and vindictive. We don't stoop to their level of playing games.
