Erna emailed me to pass on this little tidbit from Publishing News. Usually an author of a best-selling novel waits until Hollywood comes knocking. Not Nix, who has assembled :
.. an A-list dream team in order to bring Sabriel, the first book in his Old Kingdom trilogy, to the screen.and plans to pitch the project directly to the studios himself. Talk about taking control! Perhaps other authors with some bestselling clout will take a leaf from his book?
