To my Readers:
My apologies for the lateness of this newsletter but we’ve been hard at work on a special project:
In the last 25 years, I have written and published 18 thrillers and a rom-com under the pen name L.A. Knight. Four were NY Times best-sellers, three others were International best-sellers, two series (MEG & The LOCH) have been optioned as major motion pictures, and our first release; The MEG (starring Jason Statham) was the #1 movie in the U.S. and world in August of 2018, grossing $562 million at the box office. As you read this, The LOCH and MEG-2: The TRENCH are moving closer to production while two more Alten thrillers having been optioned for television/movies.
This website has nothing to do with those novels. Among other unique perks the website offers members private access to Steve Alten projects that have NEVER been read or optioned to publishers or producers. Not because they weren’t good enough; in fact I entered several scripts & projects in contests just for shits and giggles and they either won or placed in the top four. Many of these tales are among my personal favorites; they have simply been waiting on the back-burner for the MEG movie to hit theaters (little did I know it would take 22 years - God bless you Belle Avery). They include novellas, feature length adventures and comedies written as scripts, award-winning reality series entries, and several unfinished novels which I had to put aside temporarily in order to expedite other contracted books.
HOW THE SITE WORKS:
Each month I will post a new Steve Alten project for you to read and share your comments on in a private forum. What did you like about the story? What needs improvement? If you are a graphic artist, there will be a place to post a concept cover or movie poster. I will start my day by reading the prior day’s comments and responding where appropriate. Then, at the end of each month I will host a live
Q & A
and discuss potential edits. And this is what makes this website so
– because the script or novel has
been brought to market yet
can end up in the final manuscript or draft (anyone who contributes will be credited… and who knows from there?).
Each project will remain on the site for 60 days. Example:
