First, on March 3, his novel, Breathers, is going to be released. It was the first novel workshopped in the current iteration of our writer’s group. Last year, he found an agent for it, who sold it to a division of Random House in less than 2 weeks, and today he announced that Fox Searchlight is buying the film rights!
Oh yeah, and he’s decided to quit his day job as of next Friday.
And lest I forget, Breathers kicks ass. Serious ass. But don’t take it from me, both Publisher’s Weekly and Kirkus Review gave it rave reviews.
Dreams really do come true.
