non-Hollywood

A novel of actors, indie filmmakers and musicians... and of the life not quite in The Business.

Living in Los Angeles, a few million strangers have one thing in common: they want to make it in the entertainment business. From actors to indie film types, from rock & rollers to models -- they can all be found in L.A. pursuing their dreams, working their day jobs and rallying behind the cry of "I deserve to be famous, dammit!"

With equal parts humor and empathy, Neal A. Yeager tells the story of four of these souls: Sarah is a fantastic actress who, after 37 Hollywood auditions, hasn't landed even a small role due to the fact that she doesn't look like a model. Icon is a brilliant but shy independent filmmaker with a vision. She does the film school thing during the day, works on her own independent film projects in her free time and habitually pops antacids while wrestling the doubts and insecurities of a highly creative intelligent person. Terrance has, for all of his life, been told that he looks like a movie star. He always thought he knew how to become an actor and by all accounts he has what it takes to be the Next Big Thing. And Sean? Well, Sean is a musician who knows that it's all in who you know...

A novel for the fans of the underdog, non-Hollywood takes the reader through the life of those struggling on the outside and on the fringes of show business.
