Screenplays & Screenplay Adaptations

Critique, editing, and ghostwriting services for screenplay adapations, original screenplays, treatments, and more

Our staff includes two professional screenwriters, John Robert Marlow and Robert Blake Whitehill, who specialize in critiquing, editing, and ghostwriting original screenplays. John and Robert are also professionally published authors and experienced with screenplay adaptations of novels and story-driven nonfiction.

Our screenplay and adaptation services help authors of novels, memoirs, and other genres of narrative nonfiction assess and maximize the crossover potential of their manuscripts and include a wide range of support for original screenplays and adapted screenplays based on books. The process varies based on your needs, objectives, and budget and may include the following:

  • A review of your completed manuscript, published book, or work-in-progress, to assess adaptation potential and identify ideas for a screenplay version
  • Professional collaboration and/or ghostwriting of scripts for film and television
  • Conceptual development support for scripts and screenplay adaptations
  • Guidance on the film and television markets for stories adapted from your completed manuscript, published book, or work-in-progress
  • Development and editing of pitch materials for film and television markets
  • Advice and guidance from knowledgeable industry insiders on how to pitch your work to agents, managers, and producers

Pricing for screenplay and adaptation support services is billed at either $75 per hour or at a flat rate, based on the length and format of the source material and the scope and nature of the assistance needed.

Get Started

“I think there are two types of writers, the architects and the gardeners. The architects plan everything ahead of time, like an architect building a house. They know how many rooms are going to be in the house, what kind of roof they’re going to have, where the wires are going to run, what kind of plumbing there’s going to be. They have the whole thing designed and blueprinted out before they even nail the first board up. The gardeners dig a hole, drop in a seed and water it. They kind of know what seed it is, they know if planted a fantasy seed or mystery seed or whatever. But as the plant comes up and they water it, they don’t know how many branches it’s going to have, they find out as it grows. And I’m much more a gardener than an architect.”

George R.R. Martin
