Story Maps TV Drama hit #1 on Amazon and knocked out Robert McKee’s Dialogue book

Story Maps #1 on Amazon screenwriting book charts

I was so excited to see my book, Story Maps: TV Drama: The Structure of the One-Hour Television Pilot grab the #1 and #2 spots (for the Kindle and Paperback versions) on the Amazon Hot New Releases in Screenwriting chart! It was especially satisfying to see my book above the new entry from Robert McKee,  the venerable old statesman of the screenwriting instruction world.

It also cracked the Top 10 in the regular Screenwriting chart (almost always topped by Blake Snyder’s Save the Cat. That is one ironclad kitty!), hitting #6 amongst the best-selling Amazon screenwriting books, and I intend to climb even higher…

Amazon’s ranking system gives more weight to books that have been out longer, so if I’m going to remain high on the charts, I will need to consistently sell lots of copies over time. It’s only been out for a few weeks, so we have a long road ahead of us, and I hope you can join me for the ride. I really think this book is a game changer when it comes to providing a detailed structural template for a one hour tv pilot script that uses direct examples from some of the biggest, most influential TV series of our time.

If you’ve purchased the book, please post a review on Amazon or below in the comments of this post! Thank you very much. If you’ve written a pilot and you’re interested in getting my professional evaluation, see the TV Pilot Consultation.

Good luck and happy writing,

Dan Calvisi
