February 23, 2017: First, a quick update.
Screenwriting Unchained is doing well, we've had lots of positive feedback. Here is a short selection of excerpts (full reviews on the book page here):
"Without question the most useful book in the marketplace on the writing and development process."
--Dan MacRae, Head of UK Development, StudioCanal
"A fabulous one-stop, practical toolbox for writers and developers. I for one will be recommending it heartily (and using it in my writing no doubt!)"
--E. J. Clarke, Head of Film and TV at Shoebox Films and author of the Rowan Oakwing Series
"Screenwriting Unchained is the lightsabre of screenwriting books: the Story-Type Method cuts through to the essence and guides you when you are lost."
--Matthias Hoene, Writer/director (Cockneys vs Zombies, Warrior's Gate)
"A refreshing new book all writers should consider studying."
--Max Timm, Int'l Screenwriters Assoc (ISA) and author of YA fantasy novel, The WishKeeper
"Just when I thought there couldn't possibly be anything more to add on the subject of screenwriting, this book finds it."
--Simon Bovey FHEA, Screenwriting Lecturer at Worcester University
We've hit the #1 bestselling spot in screenwriting on Amazon in Canada, France, Australia, Mexico and Brazil, but the best we've achieved to date in the US and in the UK is #2. Close, but no cigar...
We'd like to change that!
So for the first time since the publication of Screenwriting Unchained, there is a 5-day promotion (up to 50% off), starting today the 23rd of February 2017, until the 27th of February.
Also, we'd like more reviews on Amazon to get the word out and we're hoping that offering a significant discount will give more readers an incentive to get the book and review it. By the way, if you've already read the book and enjoyed it, please do leave a review on Amazon, it will be most helpful and much appreciated!
Both the Kindle version - which can be read on any desktop, laptop, tablet or phone supporting the Kindle app (including PC, Mac and iOS/Android devices) - and the paperback are discounted, up to 50% and 25% respectively.
Here is how it works:
On Amazon.com there is a Kindle Countdown Deal
- Starting on the 23rd of February 2017 at 8.00am PST (Pacific Time),
the price is down from $9.99 to $4.99 (50% off) for 24 hours only Then on the 24th at 8.00am PST, the price will be $5.99 (40% off) On the 25th $6.99 (30% off) On the 26th $7.99 (20% off) On the 27th $8.99 (10% off), and
- On the 28th at 8.00am PST, the price will be back to $9.99.
On Amazon.co.uk, the promotion is exactly the same except that the prices are in GBP and the times are GMT.
So the price is reduced from £9.99 to £4.99 (50% off) for 24 hours only from the 23rd of February 2017 at 8.00am GMT, and the book will gradually return to its normal price of £9.99 on the 28th in the morning at 8.00am GMT.
Plus, as the book is for a short time enrolled in Kindle Unlimited, you can get it free if you've subscribed to that program.

Because we could only run this deal on the Amazon US and Amazon UK websites, we have decided to discount the paperback everywhere for the whole duration of this promotion so that no one feels left out, therefore...
On all Amazon stores worldwide:
From the 23rd of February until the 27th of February 2017,
the paperback is 25% off its normal list price. That means $14.95 on Amazon.com (instead of $19.95), £13.45 (instead of £17.95) on Amazon.co.uk, and Euros 14.95 (instead of Euros 19.95) in continental Europe. The same 25% off should be applied automatically in other stores worldwide. Note: VAT and other taxes might be added on top of these prices, depending on the country you are ordering from.
So if you were on the fence or have some friends on the fence, now is the time to act, as from the 28th of February the price will be back to normal for all editions. And if you're after the e-book edition, the faster you act, the larger the discount...
