Story Ideas: Using the Public Domain for Silver Screen Novelettes

Silver Screen Books high encourages contributing writers to reference the many B-MOVIES found within the PUBLIC DOMAIN for brainstorming and feeding the muse.

The public domain is a great source for finding story ideas for B-Movie themed plots.  In fact, Silver Screen would be very interested in seeing rewrites of B-Movies found in the public domain.  There are many reasons for this, as these movies highlight the types of stories we are looking for.  A bit on the zany side, with crazy titles and scenes.  Adding a bit of humor to the tales, subtle, dark, and tongue in cheek is a plus.

If your a writer with an idea for a rewrite of a public domain B-Movie, please email a synopsis of your pitch to: author.rogarcher@gmail.com.  We would love to read it, consider it, and possibly contract your work if it meets the requirements.

A great website for Silver Screen brainstorming:


Silver Screen Books now has it's own domain name, please BOOK MARK & SHARE:

The Thing from the Other Dimension currently at #50 in top 100 Science Fiction/Fantasy

The THING FROM THE OTHER DIMENSION is currently picking up some steam and has bumped up to #50 on the Science Fiction/Fantasy Best Seller List.  Help us by sharing this post.

The 1st Day Launch of THE THING FROM THE OTHER DIMENSION, went off not to bad, considering there was no prior real marketing done before the launch. As for the stats of THE THING FROM THE OTHER DIMENSION, actually did better before its official release. Dropped from #65 to #70 for its Kindle Launch Debut.

Silver Screen is proud to have made the Science Fiction/Fantasy Best Seller list.  Listed within the top 100, considering there is over 600,000 books to compete with.  Of course our goal is to get within the top 10, or as close to #1 for the genre.


·  Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #87,076 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)

The Thing from the Other Dimension officially a Science Fiction/Fantasy Best Seller before its scheduled launch/release

We here at Silver Screen are surprised, pleased, and a bit shocked that our premier Silver Screen Imprint: THE THING FROM THE OTHER DIMENSION is already a "Official" Amazon Best Seller (within the top paid 100).   It would seem that fans and interested readers have already found the URL for the kindle copy before being announced and starting purchasing copies.

In some ways we are tickled silver to have a Best Seller already climbing the Science Fiction/Fantasy charts even before the Official Launch of the Novelette!

Please note: Amazon has reported the wrong number of pages, the print version is 42 pages printed.  Thus the Kindle is the same.

Silver Screen is further honored to appear with Terry Brooks, and H.P Lovecraft on the Amazon Best Seller List even before its "Official" launch.
