Jennifer says both the making of the movie and the release of the novel had aspects of a “broken road” as both had obstacles that seemed insurmountable at times. One of the things that helped her with her (first published) novel was the book Novelizations by Rene Gutteridge and Cheryl McKay, which she highly recommends.
As of the publish date of this episode, September 20, 2018, the movie is still in theaters, and the Kindle version of the book happens to be on sale for 99c. There is also a large print hardcover edition, a paperback edition, an audiobook, and a movie soundtrack.
