SimplyScripts Radio: The Profanity Edition – Interview with Babz Bitela - post author Don

SimplyScripts Radio – The Profanity Edition: Babz Bitela, Literary Agent with Silver Bitela Agency.

Rated G for conspicuous lack of profanity language

Host Mike Shelton, along with panelists Pia, Michael Cornetto, Phil Clarke and Don talk to Literary Agent, Babz Bitela.

She has three novels in print, Severe Tire Damage: Story of a Rock Singer, Full Moon Morning: A Shanghai Survivor’s Story, and The Art of Regifting which is touted as the stocking stuffer for ‘gifters’ and ‘regifters’ alike.

Show Notes (makes more better sense if you’ve listened to the podcast)

  • Toto’s agent – the band, not the dog
  • Zombie Strippers
  • Save the Cat
  • A Logline – Verbs plus Nouns plus Irony
  • The value of the Table Read
  • The pitch: One piece of paper with a logline, genre, page count, have you gotten coverage, beginning, middle and end of the movie. Having Coverage is important.
  • *note: WGA is NOT the reason we don’t discuss deal points, they are NOT money cops. We don’t do it as it’s TACKY…

SimplyScripts Radio is produced by Michael Cornetto.

I love Barbara!!! She’s great – and is an absolutely fabulous speaker. We’ve had her speak at our workshops and Expo, and she’s entertaining, enthusiastic, and KNOWS WHAT SHE’S TALKING ABOUT.

Great interview.
