Los Angeles, CA – February 01, 2021 – Award Winning Artist Jimmy Philémond-Montout has sold two of his books’ film rights to an English film company before the books even hit shelves. The novels, RIDE OF THE VALKYRIES and TO BUILD A HOME, will be published on the 10 of February 2021 in ebook edition and soon after in digital audio editions. The details are kept under wraps.
One of the producers who bought the rights says “Jimmy Philemond-Montout constantly takes his readers by surprise and endows his characters with life on the page so vividly, it’s as if we’re watching a movie. The novels are moving, heartbreaking, with a fresh approach to prose. We are witnessing the birth of a new voice.”
“It’s a dream come true!” writes the Author. “I’ve been taking chances, trying a minimalist approach to writing. I love dramas and comedies, which are usually the toughest genre to sell in the film industry. I’ve been told not to write those books. I’m glad I followed my heart.”
TO BUILD A HOME is set during the economic crisis, when an unflinching Ozark woman convinces a taciturn homeless man and his sons to stay at her place in hope to rekindle an old flame. Things turn sour when the Father falls in love with a woman from the city.
RIDE OF THE VALKYRIES is about a depressed father and his dysfunctional family reluctantly who embark on a life-altering road trip to Sweden so he could meet with the sick Father he never knew.
