Two things I found most attractive are that 1) Scott Free has agreed to option at least one manuscript for potential adaptation to film or television, and 2) Energy Entertainment has promised to represent at least one writer and his/her entry. That’s Brooklyn Weaver who it seems deserves all the hype he gets as one of the most successful agents on the market.
The writer is charged an additional fee for each of the add-ons but signing up for both the “guaranteed option prize” and the “guaranteed signing prize” does give your entry two more reads (plus the two reads guaranteed for the naked submission). So sometime over the next four months four different people are going to read, “The ruddy glow of the engine housing gradually fades to black. . .” – the opening line of ARC.
