Warner Brothers has acquired the rights of an upcoming
romance novel by Nicholas Sparks, titled The Best of Me.Nicholas sparks is well
known for writing romance novels however this new novel by him is supposed to
be soft and emotional unlike other Romance Books written by him.The story of
this novel involves small town high school couples from the opposite walks of
life who fall in love with each other and then end up going separate paths.However
the twist starts when they meet yet again in the same town while attending a
funeral and are faced with confronting their past lives as well as the path
they would take in the near future.But aside from writing romance books what is
it about sparks which lands him with million dollar deals? Actually this isnt
new, many romance novels are acquired by big movie publishing houses and
adapted into movies.Sparks recently sold his book Safe Haven to Relativity
Media for an estimated $2-$5 Million.The book is now used to develop a script
which would be adapted to a new movie and now a second deal with warner bros
will result in yet another adaption of this book.However The Best of Me is yet
to be published to the general public, however many fans of romance books are
eagerly awaiting its release.One thing to note is that unlike Erotic Books,
romance novels do end up getting more adaptions and million dollar deals.In
case you are considering writing a new romantic book then take this in to
accounts and keep it soft, you might end up getting more publicity.There is
nothing wrong writing hard core erotic books except for the recent trends which
has depicted explicit romance novels as graphical pornography which makes them
unsuitable to be sold among more mainstream books but rather has them relegated
to adult book stores.Sparks has a very high ratio of books adapted to romance
movies, which has earned him lot of royalties.Other than the current deals his
other books were also adapted to movies such as A Walk to Remember and Message
in a Bottle.He also had a title transfer deal of the novel adapted book called The
Last Song which featured Miley Cyrus.This is still a shocker since many critics
rate sparks books as too mediocre and the reactions from fans are in the same
lines.However Sparks has mastered the art of sales pitching his romance
booksFree Reprint ArticlesFree Web Content, which has landed him many million dollar deals.
