I would agree with worry about it later otherwise you may up with some kind on unintended hybrid of a writing style. You want the definitive novel and screenplay, so do one at a time and don't "prepare" your novels for such, imo.

Exactly!

You said it already, "If no one does, at least I'm a published author, and I've told the stories I want to tell."

I know you would love to be a producer but you also have
a real passion for this story. One before the other.

Book to screenplay

I have adapted several novels to screenplays, which you can see here, in my filmography

You can ask me any questions about book to screenplay adaptation.

Thanks, Pinakighosh, but I think I already have my answer, which is to write my books first, then worry about the adaptations later.

Game of Thrones was adapted by the writer himself.
Eventually the TV show caught up with the books and now the last seasons are written without a novel to draw from.

Watch 'Adaptation'
