Development Pitch

The Day Trip is a one of a kind film series. The characters are young, and the aliens are not the average science fiction aliens you see in films that are already out in the current science fiction market. They can communicate with the main characters, they are also funny. Their reason for being on earth is different compared to other science fiction films. A majority of this will be explained in book four in the series when it is released with my publisher. With most alien invasion films, the hero of the story is for example a scientist or former / current serving soldier. With The Day Trip it is Bradley Harrison a school boy. I have the synopsis for The Day Trip Two & Three ready to be sent to a producer / manager if requested. To date I have had many compliments on The Day Trip. My publisher reported to me in my quarterly sales report last year that The Day Trip is selling extremely well, in the hundreds, and with the second in the series due to be released very soon they are set to increase. People who have worked in the film industry before have said The Day Trip is extremely film worthy, including all of the people who have read the first book have said in reviews that it must be a film.
