A book that publishers turned down has now been optioned for film

Longshots sometimes do pay off. Libby Sternberg’s book Fire Me had been turned down by a number of publishers. Then she posted a summary on Publisher’s Marketplace – and got a six-figure film option. Read more here

And here’s the deal posting: “Libby Sternberg writing as Libby Malin's FIRE ME, about a young woman who spends a day at the office trying to convince her boss that she should be the employee chosen to be laid off, to Bob Cooper (My Best Friend's Wedding, American Beauty) of Landscape Entertainment, in a significant deal, by Ken Sherman Associates, in association with Caitlin Blasdell of Liza Dawson Associates and Bruce L. Bortz.” [Signficant = $251,000-499,000]
