I just landed my dream job as an editor at the esteemed publisher, Astra Books, and my client is the infamous sci-fi writer Derek Hamilton. The greatest writer of our generation–in my opinion.
But it’s not as wonderful as I thought it would be. I can’t get this guy to respond to my emails, texts, or phone calls.
Whenever I get him on the phone, he’s a jerk that hangs up on me. He’s a pain in the you-know-where. Yes, he’s gorgeous…but he makes my life a living hell.
When I corner him at his penthouse, I discover that he hasn’t submitted his manuscript because he’s too busy with his day job…as an aeronautical engineer.
The guy owns his own company building rockets and other innovations. He’s also a professor of engineering at NYU.
Of course he doesn’t have time to write his next book…with a schedule like that.
But I have to get him to write this book otherwise I’m going to lose my job.
Now I just have to figure out how to do that…
