About The Book
Over the last five decades dozens of books on screenwriting have been written, and tens of millions of copies sold. Yet, you can count on one hand the number of people who’ve achieved successful screenwriting careers because of those books. Why is that?
KILL THE DOG does what no other screenwriting book has ever done – it tells the truth. Not only does it expose the lies of all the previous books, but it reveals the truths of the working professional screenwriter’s life, and what it takes to have that life.
Part instruction, part Hollywood memoir, part life lessons, and all authentic, KILL THE DOG is written with a raw honesty unlike any book on screenwriting you’ve ever read.
