The Big HypeeBook - 2012
Paul Brock, a writer struggling with the realities of getting his first novel published, approaches his old friend Mel Steiner for assistance. Mel, a music-business mogul and a modern-day Barnum, decides to package Paul as a celebrity, since books by celebrities often become bestsellers. Paul writes an act of comic songs about the concerns of the middle class in America and is trained in "celebrity" by a troupe of media specialists; he emerges as a phenomenon. He is now a concert star and of course a bestselling author. Although Paul gets everything he wants, there are some things that fame brings that he never counted on.
