Three out of five people dream of writing a book. Maybe you're one of them. But what does it take to go from dream to launch? Screenwriter John August (Go, Big Fish, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory) sought to find out as he tackled something he’d only ever dreamed of: writing a novel. From Wondery, A Network Of Storytellers, this is a show about putting something out into the world. How will it turn out? You’ll know when we do.
This is the exclusive Inside Hollywood edition of printing and distributing books. Even Connie doesn’t know how it works. Paper factories make logs into pulp and presses make pages into books. The books are shipped out to be put on shelves. The most important shelves for Arlo are school libraries, and we talk to librarians about what they think of Arlo.
But what do the advance reviews say? Did Kirkus and Booklist like it? Will the New York Times write it up? Will it sell? That’s the big question now because all the preparation is over. The book goes on sale today. Like... right now. February 6.
This is it. This is launch.
