Hi All, just had the feedback from the Book Pipeline Contest from 2015 on my YA. I'm really happy with it, and great to get some advice. I want to learn from it, but don't quite understand it...doh! Please can someone explain the high concept bit? I'm guessing it needs more depth? Complex plotting? Roadkill: Live Wire The “Live Wire” social network aspect of this plot feels like it gives this project a fresh angle; we’re fundamentally seeing a relatively interesting YA mystery here, but the writer’s inclusion of this detail, along with the larger serial killer/Kelly element suggest a well-plotted book. But these elements don’t feel like they elevate the project much beyond a straightforward mystery, and while the YA market is moving towards more grounded stories (i.e., away from vampires and dystopian futures), this piece doesn’t quite feel high concept enough to attract attention from producers and studios. Close, though. The author is certainly on the right track. But the project doesn’t feel like an ideal option for adaptation at this time.
