The movie deal (now with picture!)

Contract

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.)
