Product description

Product Description

YOU'RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR LAST AD. 
In the big advertising agencies, the men and women are talented, ambitious and self-obsessed. They work exhausting hours under pressure, striving for fame and recognition. But the more they try, the harder they crash into ad land's harsh realities. 

One risks destroying her career and the careers of all her colleagues. Another finds herself dealing with the devil for a promotion. Others are bowed down with the pressure to be creative while battling office politics, deadlines, impossible clients and personal insecurities. 

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

Download ADLANDIA to find out what happens in this unputdownable collection of tales with dark and often fantastical twists. As one reviewer put it, this is "An absolute blast of a read. Funny, fast-paced and exceptionally hard to put down." 

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

Never say in an email what you wouldn't say to someone's face. 
Leona Lee is an ambitious executive with a hot temper. Her biggest client has a temper even hotter. When Leona accidentally sends her client a horribly abusive email, her world is turned upside down. With the clock ticking, she must save the situation before the ruination of her career and the careers of thousands of her colleagues.

Courting Instant Karma To Save His Career
Andrew Blazevic is a copywriter devastated by the sudden loss of his creativity. With a do-or-die meeting threatening his job, he resorts to a special 'karma tactic' in a bid to coax the powers of the universe into saving him. When the powers respond, his career takes a bizarre and unpredictable turn.

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 the details of her designs that she can't move forward in her career. When one night, a mysterious voice whispers to her from the details of one of her posters, she finds herself in a faustian pact with forces she can't control. 

Time Travelling to The Mad Men Days To Get A Job in 2159
Darrin Stevens, a struggling copywriter from the year 2159, travels back in time to the Mad Men days of 1959 in order to impress a potential employer with a 'killer idea.' But his reckless actions have consequences he could never imagine--for himself, for advertising, and the future.

The Avocado Penguin Agency. 
Albie Turner is a burnt out creative director trying to escape the big agency world. When he decides to leave and start his own agency, he can't find the courage--until he thinks of a name so powerful and original, that success is guaranteed. Avocado Penguin, anyone? How about The Agency of Infamy? The Ministry of Dangerous Ideas? No?

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 stories with a touch of fantasy, you'll love the characters and excruciating predicaments in ADLANDIA.
