All About Black Friday eBook Sale

Until February 2012, the eBook versions of the internationally popular and critically acclaimed screenplay books All About Nikki-The Fabulous First Season and All About Marilyn will be 99 cents on Nook, and Kindle, itunes, and Smashwords. I’m cutting prices so younger readers can have a chance to pick up Nikki and Marilyn’s stories at a price they can afford for reading over the holidays.

I really want teens and tweens to learn more about the craft of screenwriting and I hope they’re inspired to take what they learn from these books towards writing their own scripts and making their own videos.

All About Nikki- The Fabulous First Season
ISBN: 978-0615507019
She thinks it’s her world.
Unfortunately, we have to live with her.

Sixteen-year-old Nikki Desmond is the product of too many, too much, and too little. Too many boarding schools, too much money, and too little discipline. After being expelled from a fourth prestigious New York boarding school, her mother sends her to Los Angeles to live with her father.
In the screenplays for the Fabulous First Season of this teen sitcom, Nikki adjusts to life on the west coast while her father works towards correcting her surly, racist, and rude behavior with a combination of tough love, humor, and life lessons.

A series with a concept that’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Meets Clueless, this version of All About Nikki is the complete first season with all thirteen episodes and bonus material.

All About Marilyn
ISBN: 978-0-615-34258-0
Fame Ends at 34.
Life Begins at 35.
Marilyn Marie is desperate to break away from Nikki Desmond, the rich spoiled rotten character she played on the hit 1990's teen sitcom All About Nikki. Scraping by for years on work in two-bit made-for-video productions and handouts from friends, the 34-year-old actress anxiously
waits for the big break that will jump start her stalled career. Tragically it comes on the set of the movie SELL OUT when she's attacked by Hollywood's current it girl Tabatha Strong.

While recovering in the hospital, Marilyn prepares for the greatest role of her life: Being herself. However, the ghost of Nikki Desmond continues to haunt her as she travels to New York City with a new face and a new lease on life. Eager to move on, Marilyn realizes she must reconcile with her troubled television past if she wants to have a future in the real world.

All About Marilyn is the critically acclaimed internationally popular screenplay that depicts the struggles African-American actresses face looking for work in the film industry. In addition to being an entertaining story which details what goes on behind the scenes in the entertainment industry, it’s a great way for younger readers to learn screenwriting terminology and how screenplays are written and structured.

Both All About Marilyn and All About Nikki- The Fabulous First Season are also available in paperback and make great gifts for the aspiring filmmaker or screenwriter in your family!
