Teaser Tuesdays: How I Became a Famous Novelist by Steve Hely

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading
Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

How I Became a Famous Novelist by Steve Hely p. 45
"People like love that crosses the years, funny workplaces, goofy dads who save Christmas, laser battles, whiny hags who marry charming Italians, and stylish detectives. But try telling someone a single true thing about human experience and they'll turn on the TV or adjust their Netflix queue while you starve to death in the rain."

This farce of the publishing world is so far hilarious and frighteningly true. No matter how much he swears that truth is the last thing that we want.
