What happens when an author writes a book about his suicide but doesn’t follow through? A bestseller is born.
Gordon Nolan is the best author you’ve never heard of. At least that’s what puts him to sleep at night. That and a quart of Wild Turkey. To prove his wife still loves him, he writes a book detailing the last year of his life, ending in his suicide. Instead of mourning her loss, she celebrates her gain – a book with bestseller potential.
Victor Vaughn is the agent who was on top of the literary world but has fallen on hard times. He needs a bestselling book to keep his career alive. When unknown Gordon’s book falls in his lap, he sees a meteoric rise back to the top. Only one thing’s missing: a dead author.
With the book making waves and millions to be had, Gordon desperately tries to claim his accolades, but quickly learns he’s worth more dead than alive. His wife and agent desperately seek Gordon, or a body to pass as him, to push through the sale. When a mysterious corpse tumbles over Niagara Falls, it could mean the solution for all involved.
Bestseller is a rollercoaster thrill-ride that’ll have you laughing while on the edge of your seat, itching to know how it ends.
Background on Bestseller
This book was the first script I completed, back when I had aspirations of being a screenwriter. I always liked the idea and the story, so I decided revisit it and turn it into a novel.
