guess the book, if there is one, and more

A narcissistic, self-pitying drug fiend gets a shot at redemption when movie star Jayne Dennis, an old flame, offers to marry him. The deal is that he must now connect with Robby, the son he has shunned for 11 years.

After a young woman loses her job as a radio disc jockey, she meets a stranger who promises her a steady income working for a high-society "escort" service. With thoughts of dodging the repo-man, past due bills, and an impending eviction, the woman decides she has no choice but to plunge into a world where the line that separates sex and money is blurred beyond recognition. But complications arise when she meets the man of her dreams.

A veteran covert operative, who seeks redemption for his dark deeds, quits a CIA-like agency and starts to look out for the little guy. He ads in the paper that read simply: "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer." He takes on the cases for little or no money.

Actually, it's often much worse. These stories have all been sold to Hollywood, for this or that. One of these three is a novel, one an old TV series, and the other is just....

All from Scriptsales, the sort of site that makes writers wise up, and dumb down
