Title: One-Star Review
Author: R.E. Sargent
Narrator: Stephanie Pilavin
Would they do anything to be successful?
Lana Brooks is a prolific and best-selling author who seemingly has it all: money, fame, and a dream apartment overlooking the Manhattan skyline. What could possibly be wrong in her life?
Confident in her writing abilities, Lana is shocked when a reader shreds her reputation while reviewing her latest release. Distracted by the review to the point where it affects her writing, Lana takes matters into her own hands, not realizing she is going to get way more than she bargained for.
Check out the bonus story, “Becoming Karen Carter”, included!
Jessica Nichols wanted the one thing that eluded her – the distinction of becoming a best-selling author. The only thing standing in her way was a stack of rejection letters. Unable to get her foot in the door, she finds herself destined to spend her life working dead-end jobs.
Desperate to make it, and rapidly running out of options, Jessica crosses a line she can never come back from.
The author of this story beautifully made the struggles of an unknown and known writer very real. Both stories ask the question What would you do to make your dreams come true? For both women, they find they have no limits to be the best authors they can be. As an author myself, the struggle can be real. Especially when it comes to one-star reviews.
Relatable, intriguing, and funny, this short listen is a must read.
