The book became so popular and so widely known that someone bought the movie rights from creator David Boswell. Everyone thought that it was going to be a movie, and I recall the rumors that it had the green light and was moving forward. All of the Reid Fleming fans who came to my store to buy their copies were hyped (myself included). And we waited for news of its production and imminent release.
And we waited.
We're still waiting, all these decades later.
The story is a familiar one, especially for me, as I partially lived it when I optioned the film rights to my first novel, THE FLOCK. In my case, though, it was an option and not an outright sale of all rights. Good for me...alas for the talented David Boswell.
