Description

Booked to Death is a novel for everyone who has ever thought to write, become published and for booklovers. Two very different writers are driven to the brink of desperation in their quest to land a lucrative publishing contract. MT Evans, early 50s respected publishing executive meets up with Sherry Cherelle a shallow, pampered, buxom aspiring author for a glass of wine at the Algonquin Hotel Restaurant in New York to commiserate about their publishing woes. Resentful of the success achieved by the 'nobodies' who commit crimes and then land BIG book deals, the frustrated authors unite to devise the perfect crime to guarantee their inclusion in the exclusive society of 'published authors.' Their criminal plans, similar to their endeavors to get traditionally published, fail in a comedy of errors, despite their well-thought-out strategy, but all is not lost as the tables turn. A bizarre twist of fate set in motion by their bugled crime spree brings about an unforeseen deal. But at what cost? Author's disclaimer statement to those still seeking the elusive book publishing contract... Don't even think about copying any of the ideas contained herein, it may result in your imprisonment.show more
