About the Book:

As graphic novels grow in popularity and grab more shelf space in bookstores, Hollywood is discovering a gold mine of ideas ready to be made into movies. From The Watchmen to The Walking Dead, many successful movies either started out as a graphic novel, or have been adapted into the graphic novel form in order to expand the audience and increase revenue — and writers, illustrators, and artists are finding a powerful new medium through which to express and market their ideas.

Creating Graphic Novels: Adapting and Marketing Stories for a Multi Million Dollar Industry is a step-by-step guide to creating a graphic novel from your story idea. Author Sarah Beach will teach you the essential artistic, technical, and business practices necessary for getting your own story into graphic novel form and in front of readers. Many topics are covered, such as finding the right art team, social networking to promote the material, and signing a contract with a publisher.
