Deadly Sexy – The Movie

About Deadly Sexy

Though her Lexus may be broken down on the California freeway, Jessi Teresa Blake is no damsel in distress. Rich, smart, and beautiful, JT, or “Lady Blake,” as she is called, is one of the toughest sports agents around. She’s negotiated megabucks contracts for every superstar in the business, and only the most confident of men can match wits with her. Men like Reese Anthony, the impossibly sexy trucker who gives her a lift back to Oakland.

Why invest in Deadly Sexy The Movie?

Entertainment comes in many forms. Film, music, books, theater and art, are creative collectives designed to enhance our lives with enjoyment. As authors, we are the beginning force in many of the areas listed. We write the stories that appear on film, or the plays, which we see, live on stage. Getting our work recognized as worthy of moving from the pages between the cover of books to the screen or stage is often unheard of for some authors. The making of Deadly Sexy, which consists of two authors collaborating on a project, shows how it can be done for all.  Authors supporting authors is a way we can all achieve the goal of turning books into film.

The number one goal of this project is to see the intriguing work of Beverly Jenkins’ contemporary NIA series come to life, because we love the series and her. The second goal is to shows how authors can green light themselves in film projects. By pooling our resources and talents together we can turn what seems to be impossible to reality.

The success of the Deadly Sexy project can lead to another authors book2film project, then another and another and another. The avenue of possibilities are limitless, when we come together in a collaborative effort to see good stories, told our way, come to life on film.

Investing in Deadly Sexy is investing in your future film projects’ future.
