I'm not exactly superstitious, but I'd tell any athlete: Don't let them put you on the cover of Sports Illustrated until you've won your event.

The same goes for movie options: Don't tell anyone your book is being made into a movie until they've begun shooting--and you've cashed the check.

So I'm not telling anyone Higher Than Eagles will soon be a feature film. All I can say for sure is that two movie producers asked me for ten copies--and an invoice. The good news is that somewhere, somehow, investors with money will be asked to read my book.

Beyond that, all is speculation. Right now, the bottom line is ten sold copies. And a future that's wide open.

Am I cheering? Well . . . not yet.
