Here's some advice to struggling authors who can't get published:
Be Ethan Hawke, star of "Reality Bites" and "Before Sunrise."Write a first novel titled "The Hottest State."
Stand back and watch Little, Brown pick it up for a fall '96 publication date, and listen as an editor tells a tabloid journalist that the book is "an extremely tender novel about first love and heartbreak, about being turned inside out by the intensity of your own emotion." - Roger Anderson
