Pretty Woman producer Gary W. Goldstein hopes to raise $12,000 to self-publish his bookThe Writer’s Guide to Hollywood.

The funds will be used to hire a book designer, an editor, a proofreader, and a web designer. It will also cover the first print run and the costs of shipping the books out to stores. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think? Here’s more about the project:

“As a producer and literary manager, I’ve discovered keys to success in Hollywood — valuable tools that actually launch careers — the very things that helped me jumpstart careers for so many screenwriters and filmmakers, and that allowed me to launch my own career when I was new to Los Angeles and didn’t know anyone in the business.
