What is The Novelist about?
Lewis was a good-selling writer once, a mid-list writer, as they call them in the industry, basically one who sells enough books to keep on-board, but not so many he becomes rich out of it. But now that he is older, his books no longer sells, and his girlfriend is tired of being with someone who is always broke. When his publisher takes his next novel without an advance and insists on publishing it as an e-book only, Lewis is forced to take on a creative teaching job at the local community college to make ends meet. He meets a young woman writer filled with talent who begins to take over his mind and his life. At the crossroad of possibilities, Lewis must decide to continue with writing or give it up forever.
