Conquering Hollywood

There are over 1,094 books on Amazon that show you “how to write a screenplay”… but next-to-nothing on how to break into Hollywood, sell your script and build a successful writing career. Until now.

As a producer, Gary W. Goldstein’s movies have generated well over $1B in global box office receipts. His portfolio includes “Pretty Woman”, “Under Siege” and “The Mothman Prophecies”.

But more importantly — over the last two decades — Gary has nurtured, mentored and launched some of Hollywood’s most successful screenwriters. In his book, “Conquering Hollywood”, he reveals proven career-making strategies, planning and advice for aspiring (and established) screenplay writers.

The strategies in this book will help you whether you’re looking to sell a spec script, option your screenplay, land a writing assignment and get hired, attract an agent or manager of your dreams… or get a producer to take a meeting with you.

From the book: 

“My mission is simple: I want writers to learn how to get ahead in this business of show, how to be smarter than their competitors, how to get noticed, how to develop relationships and, as rapidly as possible, begin to work with quality people and projects.

“I want you to make it on your own terms, not wait to be ‘discovered’ or rely on winning some form of cosmic lottery.”

- Gary W. Goldstein, author of “Conquering Hollywood”

 What screenwriters say about Gary:

“Here is a book of practical advice for those seeking a career in Hollywood, written by someone who really knows what the hell he’s talking about.” ~ J.F. Lawton, Screenwriter (Pretty Woman, Under Siege)

“I am living proof that the author knows his stuff.  When I met Gary, I had nothing but talent and a drive to succeed.  Nine months and seventy-five meetings later, I had my first script option, my first studio writing assignment, and a Writers Guild card.” ~ Allison Burnett, Screenwriter (Autumn in New York, Feast of Love, Underworld: Awakening, and Undiscovered Gyrl)

“In an online pitchfest this week, seven producers instantly asked to read my script and two others asked for my e-mail address. I have never experienced anything close to those results in the past. All thanks to Gary W. Goldstein!” ~ Jan Stanton, Screenwriter
