From book to screen in 8 years: Still Alice movie released this weekend

For those of you follow this blog, you will know I have periodically mentioned the book Still Alice written by Lisa Genova. It was originally self published with iUniverse and then went on to be a best seller in multiple countries for Simon and Schuster. This weekend, it is being released as a major motion picture.  It is a compelling story and I hear there is Oscar buzz for Julianne Moore’s performance. In fact, this past weekend, she won the Golden Globe for best actress.

I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to seeing the movie. Also, I wanted to bring this to your attention because I think it is a great example of  how long it can take for a book to be made into a movie. Still Alice was first released in 2007. Eight years later the movie comes out. Still worth the wait.  Enjoy.

    Keith.. good story.. the message is.. keep working.. keep promoting your book.. it might happen.. I have sold about 1,500 in my first two years.. most of that was with only one book.. The Bronze Horsemen.. last March I-Universe published my second book, Adventures of the Bronze Horsemen.. by I-U will have my third on the market.

    Mr Chavez says he has a quote for me for a web press run.. waiting for approval before he sends it to me.. I suggest he just ask you. Dave Mallegol
