How Could I Say No to an Offer Like This?

I was cruising Craig’s List for writing jobs today and I came across this:


Craig's List Ad - Will buy rights to your novel
Who could say no to an offer like this?!



Yeah, as a matter of fact I did write a novel. It’s really awesome too. (If I do say so myself.) It’s funny and endearing and tells a good story and I actually think it would make a really cute romantic comedy starring Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper & Matt Bomer (or maybe Ryan Reynolds).


I’m working on the final(ish) edits and have been stalking following agents and editors on Twitter and reading Jeff Herman’s Guide to Book Publishers, Editors, and Literary Agents, but apparently I’ve been going about it completely wrong. I can just sell the rights to this guy on Craig’s List. For (up to) $200!


Wow! Ten (or okay, twelve) years of hard work sold for dinner and a movie. How could anyone say no to that?
