The book is titled "STORY MAPS: How to Write a GREAT Screenplay" and cover should also include "by Daniel P. Calvisi." This book shows you how to write something that is not just okay, or clever, but GREAT so that it will stand out in the very competitive market in Hollywood. This is about EXCELLENCE, HARD WORK, learning from the MASTERS, and getting the INSIDE SECRETS of the industry.
I like the concept of a MAP -- the book will guide you on your journey from A to Z. It may help for you to think of the idea of either a topographical map, i.e., an overhead view of a city or country, a la Google Maps, or a linear path, like a chart or graph, from left to right. (Just a suggestion, be creative!)
This is the PATH TO SUCCESS and also the path of your HERO.
I also use the analogy of BUILDING A HOUSE in the book. These tools are the BUILDING BLOCKS of your story.
-Typewriters. Huge cliche in writing books.
-The "Hollywood" sign. If you have to signify Hollywood/ the movie biz on the map, please use another image other than the famous sign in the hills.
-Any images from any films or tv shows! Do NOT use any representation, no matter how derivative, of a specific image, character or logo from a movie. E.g., not even a cartoon image of Harry Potter is legal usage.
