Brian Wright thought he had it all figured out. That is until his literary agent dropped a bombshell on him. Now he must contend with the deadline of a lifetime in order to tackle his third novel. In the writing session of his life, Brian will find a flurry of accidents and antics that are sure to slow him down.

I received a copy of this book in audio format from the author in exchange for a honest review.

This is a short story, the audiobook is just under thirty minutes. Brian Wright had promised his editor to have his third novel completed soon, but several events, not his own fault, will get in the way.

This is a hilarious tale about how difficult things can get for a writer even when he has the best intentions to have his book ready. I especially enjoyed the part where all their clothes turn pink and they just have some moving boxes to wear.

I was not fully convinced with the narration though. It was correctly done but I noticed some mouth noises and it was not as clear as I am used by other narrators.

I really enjoyed this short story, and I think it is a must listen, especially if you have ever tried to write something with a deadline.

My name is Elena. Since I was a little child I loved science fiction and fantasy, and I can’t resist to a good novel. In 2015, while wait I started to listen to audiobooks and I discovered the pleasure in being able to read while doing my daily tasks, so there’s always an audiobook playing on my phone. If you see me with my Bluetooth headphones on, please be gentle, I get easily startled. I live with my boyfriend, which I met during my six year stay in Belgium, two cockatiels, five lovebirds, and two Gouldian finches in Madrid, Spain; and I like to spend my free time knitting and sewing while listening to audiobooks.
