When her screenplay gets accepted to a local LA film festival, 23-year-old Rylie Cates heads to Tinseltown, where she is thrust into the spotlight as her career takes off.
As she struggles to live up to her newfound success, Rylie meets the people who will become her friends, her guides to the city and the movie business, and ultimately, her “LA family.”
Despite her best intentions, deciphering the politics surrounding her new career proves difficult, and she unwittingly makes a few enemies on her path to success.
Confronted by scheming studio executives, philandering movie stars, and the perpetual lure of the bottle, Rylie relies on her new friendships to help her navigate life, love, and business in Hollywood.
Writer. Movie buff. Nerd. Pottymouth. Amateur philosopher. Walking contradiction.
"I live in my own little world. But it's ok, they know me here." -Lauren Myracle
Books, especially the ones you write yourself, are your own little worlds. They can create a family and new friends; they make you feel happy, sad, frightened, warm and fuzzy, and perhaps most of all, grateful. Grateful for imagination, grateful for an escape, grateful for the ability to create something that you can have all to yourself or share with the world. Books transport us, they make us fall in love, they break our hearts, and take us on new adventures. #longlivelit
