*Materials may be uploaded during registration, OR sent as an attachment to entry@bookpipeline.com after registration. Registrants will receive a confirmation email with further info and instructions. 

Criteria & Review: All entries are judged on the basis of concept originality, writing ability, and primarily the property’s viability as a film or television series. Judges will consist of Script Pipeline executives and the supporting management/production companies in the latter rounds of review.

Every entrant will receive brief, general feedback on their submission, specifically on the material’s adaptation potential, once results have been announced. Comments are sent direct via email after final judging is completed in April 2017.


– Material may be published or unpublished; if published, the film AND television rights must be available

– Writers selected for the final rounds of judging may submit their full novel for review, if available. However, the final decisions will not hinge on a writer having the completed manuscript. Our primary concerns are the overall pitch and story synopsis in addition to the sample chapters to determine writing ability.

– Supplemental materials (illustrations, character bios, etc.) are optional but acceptable.

Coming soon at Editions Dedicaces: “Lilith the Verminous Beauty”, by George Zamalea

Lilith_FrontISBN : 978-1-00000-000-0
Format : — pages, 6 x 9 inches
Interior Ink : Black & white
Binding : Perfect-bound Paperback

“Lilith the Verminous Beauty” is the strange ecstasies that some human beings find in the infliction of pain. One must notice she is not a human being as well as to arouse the senses she may die. She is in this world who loves to mess up minds, which she breaks apart the heart and neck and feasts upon men and women in recently fornication as if they are nipples of a rosy snow.  Lilith is those who burn the human body with pleasure and desire, and she consumes them with sweet bites for her natural enjoyment.

“Lilith the Verminous Beauty” tells the story of Lilith, son/daughter of Aphrodite served the goddess and the spectrum of Hermaphroditus; her ego sudden reveals a hidden life, a parallel existence that she has acted out alone. But Lilith also has her secrets, and she has not forgotten the strange rituals that she learned at Italy twenty years before, when the flawed and tragic Jacque Deauville was her masterpiece and her lover. The knowledge that he taught her is what she must now bring to wealth as she attempts to make sense of her many sexual relationships and sexual satisfactions are not only goals in and of themselves, but are also expressions of a total personality structure of Lilith herself.
