SCREENPLAYS: We are Associate Managers of AEI – Atchity Entertainment International, a literary management company in Beverly Hills, California. AEI is looking for projects with high commercial potential.
Your query should include the following (whether by e-mail or snail mail):
The title of the book
For fiction, tell the genre (e.g., mystery, thriller, mainstream, etc.)

For novels, give the word count
Give a brief description of the project – this means tell us what it’s about. For screenplays, include a logline, followed by a brief description of the story. A logline is a one- or two-sentence statement of the concept. For example a logline for Air Force One would be “Terrorists hijack the President’s plane.”
Tell us a little about yourself, including whether you’ve been published before and/or awards you have won for your writing. For non-fiction, tell why you’re qualified to write about the subject.
