I was more than a little interested to do a little research after hearing of the author of a fantasy series called 'Imago' by L.T. Suzuki. My subject references are to Book 1 information on the Amazon Kindle site. The movie will be called Imago: the Warrior Chronicles. The film company is best known for Eastern Promises.
The three pieces of information in the title seem contradictory. Can anyone offer an explanation? I should mention I haven't read the book but heard the author speak recently. On the surface it should bring hope to anyone who feels short on stars, reviews or sales.
All it takes to get a movie made is for someone who makes movies to find the book and like it.
A writer friend of mine who sells about as well as I do (she's had a bit of a spike this month though, and will outsell me by buckets) has a movie deal in the works. The producers were scouring the best selling YA paranormal books and like hers.
I thought at first I'd looked at the print version but they are both similar. Here are the details:

I wonder how the production company ever came across the novel if it was in the 700,000 ranking and obviously had very few sales? I know for a fact that there are books out there with very favourable reviews from places like Kirkus Reviews and these books are [i]not[/i] doing well.
I've come to the conclusion that getting your book noticed is all about publicity and creating a buzz. Case in point --- Fifty Shades of Grey. After an article on Yahoo news sales for the book went through the roof.
Not to say whether this particular book is any good or not, but lots of books are optioned every year. Few of those make it to the big screen and probably fewer bear any resemblance to the original when and if they do.
I see what happened - the one you indicate was published by Trafford Publishing in 2006. She must have ended her contract with them and published on her own in 2010. If you click on the link I gave you above you will see that it's doing much better as an indie book.
