Amazon: Movie Mogul?

This will make your indie heart go pitter-pat! Amazon is optioning books for the movies.

Last year, I'd heard that they planned to do this, but nothing else was said. Then today, an article about their first acquisition was online Amazon Studios Options Rights to a Novel for the First Time.

Judging by the blurb about this novel, it seems they're starting with Horror, but one can only hope they'll branch into other genres -- like Romantic Comedy.

Hey, Amazon, have I got some movie-option material for you!

Takeaway Truth

One can hope.
