OCTOBER 17, 2019


Beginning today I am starting a QUOTE CONTEST. At the beginning of each chapter of RAGNATHORPE, my book that will publish the end of October or beginning of November 2019, there is a quote. I have decided to have a QUOTE CONTEST because I would like to involve my amazing fans in the process. 

What you will need to do:

1-Submit an original quote ON THE CONTEST TAB with your name as you would like it to appear in the book. By adding your quote to the Contest Tab you ensure that it is original and a quote of your own making.

2-The quote must be about one of the two following subjects a) Prophecy or b)expectations of the future.

What I will do:

1-I will select the quote that best suits the final chapter of Ragnathorpe.

2-The quote that I select will be published at the beginning of the final chapter and will credit you based on the name that you gave below, giving you credit for the quote. Also, your name will be listed on the back page that gives credit to each individual of the quotes that I used in my book.

3-The contest will end on October 28, 2019

*There is no financial compensation for the quote selected and Sarann will only select from quotes that are original and cannot be found through a web based search.

Received some production feedback today and my heart is racing! I couldn't be more thankful and humbled by their words:

“What is so intriguing about the project is not only the title, but the concept and idea behind Paris’s true identity as Princess of Daego. It's a very well thought out story, one that intrigues producers.”

For those that are following my journey from novel to big screen I want to thank you for your support and encouragement . As hard as it may be to believe, the hardest part of this so far has been creating a logline. The logline is ONE sentence describing my novel. If the logline doesn't capture the attention of the producer then they will never ask to see the screenplay. Once I had the logline completed I then had to complete a one page synopsis of the entirety of the primary characters and plot. Again that was a challenge since author's are wordy creatures. I am so excited to announce that these requirements have been met. Now we just hurry up and wait for them to be reviewed by the agency and for the pitching to Hollywood to begin!  

It is still surreal that I am even making this announcement. Believing that this is possible is only because of the support and encouragement from my family, friends and fans, THANK YOU!


Daego's Destiny: Dawn of Secrets is now a screenplay, not just a novel! I have signed on with an agency that will be pitching this screenplay to Netflix, Amazon and HBO as an original movie!
