{Heat Meter} “The Astronaut Instruction Manual” Burns Up The Market, Lighting A Signal Fire That The eBook Has Arrived

scott energy 1111

After hitting the market last week, author ’s eBook sensation has quickly found its way into the hands of top producers and is already generating stellar offers. Energy‘s is repping the rights to the book, which is being framed as “a Wimpy Kid’s Guide to becoming a Martian.” And now that Energy has teamed with ’s  to produce, every major studio is swarming.

Endorsed by authors, teachers, scientists and Congressmen, The Astronaut Instruction Manual for Pre-Teens excites a new generation of space explorers. The book, designed for children between the ages of 8 and 13, is a functioning, first-step instruction manual. With excitement and honesty, readers are encouraged to articulate and personalize their own vision of next-generation space travel. Driven in part by new space celebrities (Commander Chris Hadfield, Elon Musk, Alyssa Carson), and in part by a shift in popular interest in space (SpaceX rockets, Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Kerbal Space Program videogaming), The Astronaut Instruction Manual for Pre-Teens captures a new era of enthusiasm for space exploration.

There’s been a ton of buzz surrounding Mongo’s debut eBook, and The Tracking Board has confirmed that after going into every film studio last week with several circling, it’s a major TV studio that has come in with a preemptive offer on this hot property. We’ll have more details as they come in, but overall, this dual platform sales & packaging strategy employed by Energy’s Weaver should come as no surprise, as it has resulted in several film projects being sold in TV bidding wars (Eden) and vice versa (Extant).

If and when this deal closes, it will mark Energy’s third eBook sale in a row by previously unknown authors, efficiently leveraging the company’s established track record of packaging unknown screenwriters into deals with A-list players. Previously, when Energy took out Timeless by Armand Balthazar and Fall of the Gods by Sweden’s Mood Visuals, both were snapped up in preemptive deals by Fox. Clearly the spec script isn’t going away anytime soon, but we can no longer deny the power of the eBook.

The Astronaut Instruction Manual for Pre-Teens is a property brimming with potential, as the concept of living on Mars or working on an asteroid are no longer considered ‘science fiction’ for the new generation. Mongo, who works as a full-time astronaut teacher based in Key West, now has an opportunity to share his enthusiasm for space travel to an even larger audience.

We can now confirm that the hot eBook is into every major studio!

  1. You pick a scheme for him to try (Release the Legacy Virus).
    NEIGHBORS 2 – well the plot for this one is still unknown yet, but I’m sure it’s going to be another comic adventure between Zac Efron and Seth Rogen.
    Reynolds himself unveiled the news earlier on his official Twitter account.
