Canvas Media Studios, in conjunction with literary agency New Leaf Literary & Media, bought the film rights to four novels.The four novels the studio bought, according to Variety, are Cora Carmack’s contemporary adult romance novel Losing It and three young adult novels: Mindee Arnett’s The Nightmare Affair, Kelly Fiore’s Thicker than Water, and April Genevieve Tucholke’s Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.
In Mindee Arnett’s The Nightmare Affair, Dusty Everhart is a Nightmare, the only kind at Arkwell Academy. But when she sneaks into the room of Eli Booker and his dream of murder comes true, Dusty must follow the clues to stop the killer before others turn up dead.
In Kelly Fiore’s Thicker than Water, Cecelia Price killed her brother. At least, that’s what the police are saying. And although Cecelia is now locked up and forced into treatment, she knows the real story is much more complicated.
April Genevieve Tucholke’s Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea follows Violet, whose seaside town is turned upside down when River West arrives. Grim things are unfolding, and River might be behind them.
Canvas Media Studios, which launched recently under David Tochterman, will work with a team to develop the books for both “digital and traditional platforms.”
