I'm trying to promote my script.

Logline:
A politically connected businessman falsely accused of murdering a Washington lobbyist - struggles to clear his name and in doing so uncovers the true identity of Jack the Ripper.

Go to Amazon Studios and search "Into The Night", by C. V. Hubbard (me) and download a copy. Read it. Enjoy it. Review it. Thx!
