Development Pitch

I love this book and I loved writing this book. It can be used as a learning tool on how not to treat people and play with their emotions. It teaches you that no matter how long it takes whatever you do to someone can and will come back unto you. There is love, lies, betrayal and romance. Dre' is that man that people will love to hate as well as a dream man to many. He can be sweet and romantic treat you like a king or a queen. He holds a mystery within himself as he is filled with emotional hurt, anger, and rage. Angela is sweet a hard working woman with a secret of her own. When the two find each other no one would ever imagine how things would end. I know everyone that reads this book or watch it on their screens would love it just as much if not more than I do and have.

About The Author

My story is based solely on fiction nothing in this book is intended to harm or offend anyone. I enjoyed writing this book because it touches on the day to day stresses people have dealing with life, bullies, lies, drama and struggles with sensuality, sexuality and reality. Before writing this story I had different age groups in mind from 20-100 male and females. I know that whomever decides to buy and read this book it will tell a story about themselves, or someone they know can relate. It is entertaining, and interesting, however you choose to look at it i know Noone will be disappointed. I would love eny new reader, longtime reader, or just a reader that wants something to read to buy my book. My kids loved it and i have a few friends that read it that encouraged me to go through with it.

Accuracy of Book Profile

No, the book profile does not reflect the book. This is a romantic drama. It is full of lies, sex and deceit. Angela is looking for love but gets entangled in multiple relationships. Andre is possessive with devious motives.

Draw of Story

The story is hard to read but the characters are African American in a modern setting. They are young professionals which is always refreshing to see.

Possible Drawbacks

The dialogue, writing style and format are not professional. There are few punctuation marks and no parentheses to mark that a character is speaking. It is written as a run on sentence with no formatting to speak of. The dialogue sounds like an internal rant and rambles on through the entire story. The dialogue is very basic and the author uses expletive language to portray all emotions.

Use of Special Effects

THE STORY DOES NOT RELY ON SPECIAL EFFECTS

Primary Hook of Story

The hook is that Angela is looking for love but lots of drama finds her instead. This story shows African Americans as normal people without adding racism as a conflict. They are business people in a sophisticated setting which would translate well on screen.

Fanbase Potential

This would not have a large fanbase. It is targeted toward a very specific genre of people who like the level of drama that this story reflects.

Awards Potential

This does not have award potential because the story line is barely developed. There is no depth or character development. This is about drama and sensationalism, not about developing a well rounded story.

Envisioned Budget

LOW BUDGET

What’s New About the Story

There is nothing unique about this story. The stories purpose is to be sensational. There would need to be more development of the characters. The characters could be the same person because there is little distinctions in there speech and thoughts. This story would need a complete overhaul.

Lead Characters

The lead character does not stand out. Angela is a normal woman dating and trying to make her relationships work. The plot twists and revelations that she is not actually Angela but Janae is the only thing that would make her stand out. It seems more of a interesting story element then a reflection of the character.

Uniqueness of Story

This is not a rare gem. It could be improved by an overhaul of the dialogue. There is a lot of profanity which does not enhance the understanding of the characters. The grammar is incorrect and takes away for the story.

Analyst Recommendation

WORK IN PROGRESS

Justification

While the story has many positive points, it has room for improvement (see possible paths below). If you can't change the story at this point, my suggestion is using your notes as a guide to highlight the best aspects of it when taking the next steps, either putting a pitch page together, a treatment, or a presentation.

Tips for Improvement

For this to become a recommend the story needs structure. There are interesting elements; single life of a young woman, her dating experiences, experimenting, putting herself first. It has all of the right elements but them but then it seeks to shock you at the end with rape, bullying, hidden identities, murder and kidnapping. It does not need to take that type of turn. If it could choose one or the other.
