To make a long story short, when 'they' decide they want to make your book into a movie, they offer to buy the 'book rights.' Since mine is based on a true story and my family are the main characters they also buy the 'life rights.'
I am just like everyone else. When it comes to reading I want to picture my characters as being above average in looks/wealth/etc. And that's exactly the same when it comes to movies.
I hope that answered your questions and thank you so much for your interest.
Have a great weekend!
Until next time,
