Today was a momentous day. Today is the day Matt Zien's script LOVE AND CANDY scored the single best review in Coverage, Ink history. We've had a few "recommends" before (no more than 4 or 5 out of the thousands of scripts we've received,) but never have we had a recommend/recommend (That's a recommend for both writer and script) and box scores either excellent or very good in every single category.

LOVE AND CANDY is a dramedy about an anxious neurologist who unknowingly tries ecstasy and has a life-changing experience, which then motivates him to use psychoactive therapy on his parents to try to save their troubled marriage. Reader DS (a former literary manager) in particular praised the writing and the dialogue, laden with subtext and humor. Zien has the goods.
"What brings it all together is the very strong writing that bespeaks skill and experience," said DS in the analysis. "The subject matter is treated with the deftness and maturity it deserves, yet the story manages to maintain a light and humorous tone throughout with just the right balance of comedy and drama.  We laugh, we cry, we are kept turning the pages with twists, turns and surprises that we don’t expect... Simply put, great job."
We e-mailed Zien to tell him the news. "I'm absolutely floored with DS's reaction, and honored he enjoyed the read," he said. "That said, I will definitely follow your advice and get some more opinions on it. Rest assured I'll have a few more scripts that will need opinions over the next year or so and I'll be sure to come to you! Thank you again for the coverage and especially the exposure on your blog. It means a lot and has truly made my year."

Yeah, make it look easy, Matt. Sheesh! Any industry types out there interested in a look, contact CI at and we'll hook you up. Congrats, Matt!

Once you find a site with no bad reviews, run a check on that site through the hublot replica. Any site that clears those hurdles is OK to do business with. As far as the tag heuer replica is concerned, there are deals galore. A popular Bulova men's diamond watch you can find online for a lower price than you pay at retail is the replica watches sale. This watch has a round face that is surrounded by beautiful diamonds as well as having diamonds on the actual face of the watch itself. The rolex replica watch has 32 diamonds with a stainless-steel bezel and a stainless steel band. This watch is also water resistant up to 99 feet and comes with a 2-year manufacturer warranty.
