From Book To Script And Back Again?

Had some setbacks that have put me way behind.


That coupled with a growing desire to get back into a format that I have had some minor success with, has compelled me to finish SOCKPOCALYPSE as a screenplay rather than a book. I will still publish it as an eBook upon completion, but in screenplay format. At a future date I will also expand the finished screenplay into Novella format and release that as well. I plan on entering this and other screenplays into the Austin Film Festival in the coming year. This does not constitute an abandonment of book format, but an enlargement of my writing process. Look for future titles in both formats (as well as paperback) from Me, Billy (still me) and from me and my screenwriting partner, Chris. Don’t cry, it’s me not you. It’s for the best, and yes, we can still be friends.


Profile Picture for Philip A. McClimon
Philip A. McClimon is an author who likes to write about the end of the world (post apocalyptic, Sci/Fi), mostly because he thinks the shopping would be awesome (No crowds, everything free). He likes heroes that are the strong, silent type and not necessarily male. By silent he means up until the time there is something snarky to say, usually before, during, and after doing something cool. He writes Urban Fantasy under the name Billy Baltimore for no other reason than that he likes the name. Many of the same rules for his other stories apply to Billy’s, strong silent types, smart mouth, does cool stuff, but these stories take place in a made up town called Hemisphere and involve stuff you only ever hear about on late night conspiracy talk show podcasts, which are, if you think about it, pretty awesome too. So, that’s Phil. He’s not strong, rarely silent, and isn’t known for doing a lot of cool things. But his characters are.
