There are so many great movies coming out this fall!

One I am looking forward to seeing is The Martian.  There are many lessons authors can learn from the movies and how a movie comes to the silver screen.

1. Self-publishing can lead one to the movies.  Author Andy Weir self-published The Martian and posted it on Amazon for .99 cents.  To gained a following and by word of mouth it was sold to Hollywood.

2. Peanutize-The Peanuts movie is coming out in November and I was not interested.  I do now know why Hollywood has to keep remaking movies.  However, last week the studio came out with an app to Peanutize yourself.  This was a genius marketing tool.  I did it.  Everyone in my office did it.

What can we learn.  Try something different and brand it.  You never know who will be watching.

3. Bond-The next James Bond movie hits the market in November.  They constantly have news stories about their stunts, who would make a good Bond and any controversy is good for the movie.

At the end of the day, remember that as an author you have a product to sell.  You need to educated the audience about that product and think of creative tactics to get anyone interested.

Have a great weekend.
