Cover Attraction

Title: The Accidental Bestseller
Author: Wendy Wax

Once upon a time four aspiring authors met at their very first writers’ conference. Ten years later they’re still friends, survivors of the ultra-competitive New York publishing world. Mallory St. James is a workaholic whose bestsellers support a lavish lifestyle. Tanya Mason is a single mother juggling two jobs, two kids, and too many deadlines. Faye Truett is the wife of a famous televangelist and the author of inspirational romances: no one would ever guess her explosive secret. Kendall Aims’s once-promising career is on the skids—and so is her marriage. Her sales are dismal, her new editor detests her work—and her husband is cheating. Barely able to think, let alone meet her final deadline, Kendall holes up in a mountain cabin to confront a blank page and a blanker future. But her friends won’t let her face this trial alone. Together they collaborate on a novel using their own lives as fodder, assuming no one will ever discover the truth behind their words.

No one is more surprised than they are when the book becomes a runaway bestseller. But with success comes scrutiny and scandal…as these four best friends suddenly realize how little they’ve truly known each other. (From Amazon)

When I first saw this cover, childhood memories immediately came to mind. During my summer breaks, I spent most days reading outside, sitting on my front porch. I just want to grab a book, a nice cool drink and sit outside on my deck.


  1. I saw this cover a while ago and was really intrigued by it. It does bring back a lot of memories. :)

  2. This sounds like so much fun, especially since I love books about books.
