Arvada, CO, April 10, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The move from Maine to Hollywood is a big change for Rylie Cates, the main character in Quiet on the Set. Not only does she have to adjust to a new career, but she has to work to build new relationships in a new town and a new industry. You can’t make an omelet without cracking a few eggs, and you can’t establish yourself in business without making a few enemies.
Quiet on the Set follows Rylie’s progression from the new kid on the block to an up-and-coming screenwriter, and how she manages to overcome the people and obstacles that stand in her way. A vindictive studio executive and movie star ex-boyfriend are just the start of her problems. Rylie also has to confront her tendency toward addiction and get a grip on her emotional and romantic investments before she ends up just another tabloid story with a sad ending.
The book is part of a new genre and literary movement called “new adult,” in which the typically twenty-something characters experience and transition from their teenage years into adulthood in a plot focused around such themes as maturity and self-discovery. While the book ventures into chick lit, contemporary romance, women’s fiction, and contemporary fiction areas as well, the new adult themes are what anchors Rylie’s story. Though new adult may not be as prominent as other genres in today’s literary repertoire, the realities confronting the younger generation coincide with the themes and topics contained in this new genre.
While Rylie experiences professional success in Quiet on the Set, her struggles in her personal life are what push this story out of the familiar genres and into the realm of “new adult.”
