As promised, another great giveaway here on Booking with Manic! But first, did you win the books in the last huge giveaway? Some of you haven't contacted me yet. Check here to see if you've won.
I've been a fan of Jennifer Weiner since way before the term Chick Lit was born, when Good in Bed came out -- when I lived just about 30 minutes away from her near Philly! And here she now has 10 books out and a couple of e-shorts, and one of her books was made into a movie (In Her Shoes) and she even had a sitcom!
And today I'm excited to share with you that The Next Best Thing is out in paperback and you can win it here AUTOGRAPHED by Jen!
Here is what the book is about, loosely based on some of her experiences in L.A… or is it? Maybe some of it's true, maybe some of it's not? Hmmm… you can decide when you read it for yourself!
Actors aren’t the only ones trying to make it in Hollywood.…At twenty-three, Ruth Saunders left her childhood home in Massachusetts and headed west with her seventy-year-old grandma in tow, hoping to make it as a screenwriter. Six years later, she hits the jackpot when she gets The Call: the sitcom she wrote, The Next Best Thing, has gotten the green light, and Ruthie’s going to be the showrunner. But her dreams of Hollywood happiness are threatened by demanding actors, number-crunching executives, an unrequited crush on her boss, and her grandmother’s impending nuptials.
Set against the fascinating backdrop of Los Angeles show business culture, with an insider’s ear for writer’s room showdowns and an eye for bad backstage behavior and set politics, Jennifer Weiner’s new novel is a rollicking ride on the Hollywood roller coaster, a heartfelt story about what it’s like for a young woman to love, and lose, in the land where dreams come true.
