So a friend of mine took a degree in film, and has made some short films. The other day he said, “Hey, I’d love to do a short film based on Resurrection Radio. How much would you want for film rights?”
I said, “Let me think on it.”
Today I gave him a figure, and he agreed.
And yes, he’s got a deal with Stephen King, and yes, I’m making more than King — by a considerable margin — but no, it’s not going to pay off the mortgage.
(Hint: The deal he’s got with King is on a dollar baby story.)
