Inspiration and Permission
Hello. I’ve been an Alice fan since I was in the 5th grade (11 years old & I’m now 21) I was first introduced to the series when my old friend Aaliyah had read the book, and we were in the school library checking out books, and she had advised that I read ‘Alice in April,’ I did, and I fell in love with it. From then on i it into the entire series within a whole year. I think my love for teenage films and teenage culture began with the Alice series. Anyways, I want to say you are an incredible writer and your work has had an immsene impact in my life. I wanted to ask if it’s ok that if I ever come to the idea of one creating an ‘Alice’ tv show or another film about the series. I saw the 2008 film a couple of years ago, but I wasn’t so sure that it’s fit how the first couple of books should have been. I have in mind that a short lived tv show based on the entire ‘Alice’ series should be, but I wanted to ask for your permission if it would be alright? This is just a thought that I’ve had in mind for a while now, and would someday want to see it on the screen. Please reply as soon as possible. Thank you.
I’m delighted that you love the series so much and would like to make the books into a series. All queries about TV and movie rights are handled by my agent, however. You should contact Bill Reiss at the John Hawkins & Associates agency, 80 Maiden Lane, Suite 1503, New York, NY. 10038.
