Product description

Product Description

In the high-powered world of the big advertising agencies, success requires three things: talent, ambition, and creativity under pressure. 

A test of anyone's character and sanity. 

Into this stressed-out world go wide-eyed art directors, copywriters and account executives dreaming of casting their creativity large--on billboards, television and the glowing screens of a billion smart phones. 

Have they got what it takes to succeed? Or will they simply become casualties of ad land's famous catchphrase, "You're only as good as your last ad?"

Here are just a few of the cast and their excruciating predicaments. 

The account director and the email that could ruin her career. 
Leona Lee is an ambitious account director with a hot temper. When she accidentally sends a major client a horribly abusive email, her world is turned upside down. Against the odds, she must somehow save her career, and the careers of thousands of her colleagues. Can you recall an email you just sent? It's the biggest question Leona will ever ask? 

The copywriter who begged karma to restore his talent
Andrew Blazevic is a copywriter devastated by the sudden loss of his creativity. With a do-or-die meeting looming and nothing in his notebook, he will do anything for a big idea. But instead of begging, stealing or borrowing, he deploys 'the karma tactic' in a bid to coax the powers of the universe into saving him. To this astonishment, they respond.

She bargained with evil for the sake of a killer design
Sherylin Faye is a designer on the verge of a breakdown. She's so obsessed with achieving perfection, she is harming her career and her sanity. When one night, a mysterious voice whispers to her from one of her posters, she finds herself in a faustian pact with a force she can't control, and far more at stake than her career. 

Time Travelling to The Mad Men Days To Get A Job in 2159
Darrin Stevens, a struggling copywriter from the year 2159 can't land a job because he doesn't have a 'killer idea.' When he meets Ariana, a researcher into deep mediative states, he travels back in time to the Mad Men days of 1959. There a new set of challenges and people await, including the danger he poses to himself, advertising and the future.

They could only happen in ADLANDIA. 

If you love advertising, or loathe it, if you work in the business, or are curious about it, or you crave gripping stories with a touch of fantasy, you'll love the characters struggling to succeed in the bizarre otherworld of ADLANDIA.
