Okay, the first time I have EVER pitched anything like this before so here goes… I really want advice to improve my writing, pitch writing and develop my ideas.
Sophie is a witty, funny and bright twenty-something who has her dreams crushed when her writing agent tells her she has ‘lost her sparkle’. To add insult to injury her landlord wants the rent money. So working under her sister AKA mini Hitler seems the only logical thing to do. But when her friend Kat tells her about a foot fetish model who made thousands, she begins to ask herself is there another way?
So with the help of ex Tom, who is determined to get back with her, she starts her journey as a foot fetish model.
After a couple of mishaps she finally earns enough to get the rent together, she writes an article which gets the attention of a top magazine editor who pays her to write exposes on the hidden world of fetishes and kinks.
Taking the chance to become a real author she begins to delve deep into the fantasy land of fetishes. But when she hits a brick wall Tom offers her an opportunity to go to an exclusive fetish club, but he warns her to be secretive and the owner has a habit of tearing down anyone who steps in his way.
Her inquisitive personality gets the attention of the male owner, who is keen to understand who she is and what she is up to. After she asks him questions and lies about who she really is, he takes it upon himself to teach her the art of his world.
During this time she starts to form a bond with the Owner, who she learns is fighting a battle with a corrupt MP who is blackmailing him and a crime lord who is sponsoring his businesses, which causes Sophie to realise the dangers of getting close to him.
However, Sophie is soon beginning to lose who she was, missing her sister’s engagement party and Kat’s birthday. But, she is also finding it hard to lie to the owner.
Finding out she is in with the owner, the magazine editor gives one last request to expose the clubs elite members and their ways if she does that there is a job in New York waiting for her. She accepts.
Sophie is unaware the Owner and the Editor has had issues since the Owner was in a car accident involving the Editors brother.
After a dinner out with the owner, he comes back to hers her what where he discovers her true identity and what she has been up to. They fight and he tells her he will sue, but she knows he has no basis as there was no contract or documents to say she was even there, so he leaves.
He returns and begs her to only expose him and not his members, however, Sophie doesn’t want to expose him as he will go to prison for his dodgy dealings.
Sophie hands in her article and accepts a flight to New York. (Unsure of ending yet.)
