JDA in the press this week!

12 April, 2012

Two great stories in the press this week in which we are featured! 

Deadline announced that Ti West has been tapped to write the screenplay for Tango Pictures of Ben Winters’ tale of urban paranoia, BED BUGS, published by Quirk Books.  The deal was brokered by agent Shari Smiley who recently left CAA to found her own agency on behalf of Quirk, working with Joelle Delbourgo Associates. The story was widely picked up in the Hollywood press. Congrats to the brilliant Ben Winters, one of our all-time favorite clients:

Huffington Post just ran a story by Terri Guiliano on why self-published books are so poorly represented in indie bookstores, which makes for fascinating reading.  Terri interviewed me for the story.  Thank you, Terri!

And now, I’m off to Madison, Wisconsin for the Writers Institute conference that begins tomorrow. You can read more about what I’ll be doing there in my previous post.
