Here is the email PA is sending out to everyone talking about sending your book to DreamWorks (Steven Spielberg and all). When I first read this email I envisioned PA sending a box of books labeled: "To: DreamWorks C/O Hollywood" for some reason.

Dear Author:

PublishAmerica will submit your book to Hollywood!

Most of you know very well that the quality of your story takes no back seat to any movie story you have seen over the past few years. How many of your readers have told you that your book should really be considered for film adaptation? And if they haven't, at least the thought must have crossed your mind.

PublishAmerica will submit your book to one of Hollywood's most successful studios. We will send your book to Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks for their consideration, five copies, so that more than one studio staffer gets a chance to read your work! DreamWorks has produced stars such as Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, and the Shrek cast. Their films have won numerous Oscars. Many of Hollywood's success movies are based on fiction or nonfiction books.

We're not waiting for Hollywood to ask for your book. We're donating it to them. And we will let your local newspaper, radio, or TV know that your book is being submitted to Hollywood. So they can put the spotlight on you as a local author.

Here's how we do it:

If you want to have books on hand, order now, and we will donate five copies
to the DreamWorks studio. And you receive a 40 pct discount!

We ship DreamWorks' copies the same day we ship your books to you.

Go to, find your book, click on it, then add to cart, indicate quantity, and use this coupon: Hollywood40. Then click Recalculate and finish the transaction. Minimum volume is 12 copies.

In the Ordering Instructions field, just write: "Media Yes". Our PR department
will automatically contact you for names and addresses of your local news media.
Again, we will ship your books to Hollywood the same day we ship your
order to you. By using the coupon you are authorizing us to donate the books
to the DreamWorks studio in Universal City, California. You may also request
that we ship the five FREE books to you instead.

Full-color and hardcovers excluded. Offer expires this weekend on Sunday night.

Thank you,
PublishAmerica Author Support Team
