Short, sweet, and full of twists!
Best Seller is about three women who are striving to become bestselling authors. They are all part of the online writer’s group, the North Norfolk Novelists.
Jan is factory worker with serious money issues thanks to her ex who ran up massive credit card debts and left her high and dry. She needs her novels to be successful but doesn’t have the money to spend on editing, proof-reading, or cover design and this hurts her book sales.
Becky is happy with the moderate success of her novels, although of course she would love to write a bestseller one day.
Eden is already a huge success with a lucrative publishing deal at 23 thanks to her shady father’s money and connections.
I don’t want to give too much of the plot away because it is packed with plot twists, but I absolutely loved Best Seller. It provides an interesting glimpse inside the realities of being an author and just how difficult it can be to gain success and recognition. Thank you, Terry, for another brilliant read!
Three women, one dream: to become a successful author.
Eden Taylor has made it—big time. A twenty-three year old with model girl looks and a book deal with a major publisher, she’s outselling the established names in her field and is fast becoming the darling of the media.
Becky Hunter has money problems. Can she earn enough from her light-hearted romance novels to counteract boyfriend Alex’s extravagant spending habits, before their rocky world collapses?
Hard up factory worker Jan Chilver sees writing as an escape from her troubled, lonely life. She is offered a lifeline—but fails to read the small print…
In the competitive world of publishing, success can be merely a matter of who you know—and how ruthless you are prepared to be to get to the top.
BEST SELLER is a novella of 40k words (roughly half as long as an average length novel), a slightly dark, slightly edgy drama with a twist or three in the tale.
