Young, bestselling author Eryn Bellow concludes her bookstore tour with her agent selling film rights and closing a six figure advance for her follow-up. Publicity sells Eryn as a living literary legend. Critics get offended at the claim. Bad reviews begin to pile up. One critic goes so far as to write a fake memoir to ruin her career.
Eryn attempts to write her way out of the public fray, through the noise and writers block, to reclaim her voice in the minds of her readers. Along the quest through her subconscious, she hopes to prove a happy ending is not always a bad thing.
