All authors can benefit from TaleFlick. Our curation is focused solely on the content, not the publisher. We accept fiction & nonfiction books, that are published or self-published.

If there's interest in your book, the optioning party will get in touch with both you and your publisher to discuss the terms and rights of the deal. This is standard practice for book optioning.

Please refer to our article on Copyrighting in the US, available here.

If your book is not in English or Brazilian Portuguese, you may contact us below to register your interest and we will let you know when your language is supported.

At this time, we focus solely on books and do not accept short stories.

The $88 fee helps cover the cost of the curation and evaluation process. It ensures your book is available for one year in TaleFlick's content library.

Please upload your book as a PDF file. The file size maximum is 10MB. If your file is larger, you can look into pdf compressors (available for free online) or contact us for an alternative upload solution.

Maintaining the security and privacy of our users' data is our utmost concern at TaleFlick -- our success and credibility depend on it. All data, including any stories, you enter into TaleFlick remains yours, and we are committed to ensuring that your data is not seen by anyone who should not see it. TaleFlick's data is encrypted both when it is sent to and from our servers, submitted stories get watermarked, and any human readers sign NDAs to ensure you and TaleFlick are protected. To protect your content in transit, TaleFlick uses 256-bit SSL/TLS encryption and uses 256-bit AES encryption when sitting in our servers.

You can upload as many books as you like, but note that the $88 fee covers ONE book upload - and you need to upload one book at a time so that the data can be entered properly into our system.

Once you upload your book, it will enter our system and go through our curation process . We use a combination of machine algorithms and real human readers to find the best stories. Your book will then be catalogued and available in our database.

Our evaluation process is set up in two parts. The first is our algorithm system, which collects data about the book. It allows us to select content according to the parameters we wish to curate at that time. The second part is our human reader team, because we believe strongly in the value of human experience. When a book is selected for curation, it is reviewed by the reader team, who identify the best stories and recommend them for further consideration.

Upon submission, our algorithms go to work in tandem to analyze each story across multiple categories, and to rank stories according to their strengths, weaknesses, and potential for on-screen success. After the algorithms work their magic, our expert readers can review stories that have the most potential for being made into a movie or tv show.

We are looking for good original stories. Therefore, our selection is not based on sales, but on content and current market - meaning what studios and producers are looking for. Our curation is above all focused on great story finding, which is the core of every great movie and tv series.

The content that producers and studios look for is constantly changing, therefore we cannot predict when and if your book will be chosen - but it will be available in our library for the duration of your subscription. It may appear on lists at anytime, depending on the criteria we search for.

ROFR means you still retain all rights to your book, but give us the first option to buy the dramatic rights. For instance, if you receive an offer from another company, you must give us the chance to match it. If we don't, then you can license the Film & TV rights to the other company per their offer.

If you get an outside offer you can contact us (see below) and we will provide you with the next steps. Either we will decide to match the offer, or we will decline and you can option your book to that other party.

TaleFlick charges studios, producers and production companies for our recommended titles, as well as a back-end fee when movies and shows are made. We believe in our process and the ability to identify quality content, so that we can feed the ever increasing demand for original content.
