If your book is fiction, how could you change it to make it a nonfiction book? If your book is nonfiction, what could you do to turn it into a story? Hollywood has done it, so how could you do the same thing?
My draft is fiction, a story that involves wedding dresses, cheating, Mexican-American family customs and way of life, and a small business. How could it be non-fiction? Here I couldn't help but have a picture of Abed from the TV show Community (fiction) and his evil twin (non-fiction)
Here are some non-fiction titles I think would work:
- Evolution of Wedding Gowns - a coffee table book with beautiful pictures of wedding gowns from medieval times until now.
- How to Make a Wedding Gown - a step-by-step guide on patterns, embroidery and dress-making techniques.
- My Best Day Ever! - true stories from real brides.
- My Worst Day Ever! - true stories from real brides.
- Why People Cheat - a psychology type book focusing on personality traits of serial cheaters.
- Tortilla Soup for the Soul - inspirational stories from the point of view of immigrants.
- Tortilla Soup and more - Mexican food recipes, specifically from Mexico's Northern region.
- How to Open a Business - Step by Step guide on opening a business.
- How to Use Social Media for your Business - Step by step guide on social media marketing.
How could Hollywood make money of my book....this would definitely be a romantic comedy, which is ironic because I avoid those movies at all costs! Because of the nature of my book two things could happen:
- The movie is adapted faithfully from the book, which would make it sorta "ethnic" and would probably be a straight-to-Univision release.
- I could sell my soul to Hollywood and let them loosely base the movie on my book, thus making it more commercial and Ka-Ching!.....besides, I don't really need a soul, do I?
