I had the amazing opportunity recently to join my friend, Bryan Cohen, as a co-host on the Sell More Books Show. We discussed industry news, including the question of the week.

If you had the opportunity to sell your film rights tomorrow for a small sum, would you sell them or would you hold on to them in hopes of actually getting your film made?

No. Nope. Wrong!
