Blog Tour: Best Seller by Timothy B. Sagges

Author: Timothy B. Sagges
Publisher: CreateSpace
Date of publication: February 2011

Thirty-five year old fiction writer, Richard Rossi would do just about anything to get his manuscript published. However, months of rejection and unanswered prayers have strained his capacity to hope. Alone in New York City, he teeters on the brink of alcoholism, as his hope erodes into desperation.

His prayers are finally answered when a simple misdirected piece of mail spawns a chance encounter with an extraordinary man, Seth Volos, Publisher. And while their unholy alliance thrusts Richard to the top of every Best Seller list in America, the horrifying outcome for the book's legions of fans is anything but a happy ending. 

I was looking forward to reading this book.  I liked the idea of a book about a book and how it seems to enthrall the nation.  After read Best Seller, I have one word in mind... Creepy!  This book definitely gave me the chills. While the paranormal aspect of the book isn't ever going to happen in reality, I could see the potential, with the right the right circumstances, for something like a book to be come an obsession with thousands of fans.  In fact, it has already happened several times.

Rich isn't a likable guy in the beginning.  All he wants to do is get his book published.  Once he meets Seth Volos, he dreams seem to come true.  But as he embarks on his book tour, it seems that fame comes with a price.  He thinks he has it all figured out, but the reality is more horrifying than he thought.  The mystery of what is happening was pretty straight forward.  There are no big twists in the story, but it was still enjoyable.  The only thing that I thought was a bit much was the part about Dennis and his secret.  For me, it just didn't fit with the rest of the story.  Best Seller was a pretty quick read and worth checking out.
About the author:

Fifty-year-old actor, director and playwright, Tim Sagges has been tormented by a series of recurring night terrors since 1967, long before there was a name for such a curse. It is only recently that he has found the courage to formulate some of these visions into works of literature. In an effort to purge himself of the unrelenting horror of his dreams, he has created Best Seller, the first in a series of nightmares exorcised from his mind and onto the page.

He is currently the owner of Eye Candy Vision in Philadelphia.
