S.B. Divya’s Runtime in-development with Escape Artists and John Sacchi

Run-Time-SB-Divya-cover-188x300.jpg‘S.B. Divya’s sci-fi thriller “Runtime” is being developed as a movie with Escape Artists and John Sacchi attached to produce.

“Runtime,” published in 2016, is the story of the Minerva Challenge, a cybernetic race across the Sierra Nevadas, and how one underprivileged young woman cobbles together enough technology to compete against rivals with corporate sponsors. The key character — Marmeg Guinto — uses parts she found in rich people’s garbage and spent the money her mother wanted her to use for nursing school to enter the race. But the Minerva Challenge is the only chance she has at a better life for herself and her younger brothers, and she’s ready to risk it all.

“Runtime” was a 2016 Nebula Award finalist for best novella. “Runtime” is Divya’s science-fiction debut.

The deal was made by Brendan Deneen at Macmillan Entertainment on behalf of Cameron McClure at Donald Maass.’
