It is spring at London's National Theatre. Riley Johnson, a charismatic young actor, is rehearsing a role in a challenging play.

But Riley's life is falling apart.

His debts are crippling.

His relationship is a mess.

And the production is in trouble.

As the play's opening night approaches, happiness and success seem a distant prospect. But when he's offered the leading role in a new film Riley senses this, at last, might be his big break...

'A Distant Prospect' is an eye-opening and entertaining depiction of the harsh realities of life as a modern-day professional actor. A dazzling romantic comedy, as well as a dark tale of the challenges of theatrical life, 'A Distant Prospect' is a must-read for all aspiring actors and theatre-fans alike.

Sean Chapman is the author of the acclaimed 'Ms Derby Requires' and an experienced actor, who has starred in films such as Hellraiser and Joy Division, appeared in leading roles at the National Theatre and in the West End, and has appeared frequently on television in programmes such as Midsommer Murders, Kavannagh QC and Absolutely Fabulous.

'A Distant Prospect' has been widely praised by leading figures in the British theatre.

"I found it took me over and once I'd started reading it I hardly stopped." - Sir Alan Bennett

"I read the book straight through on the plane and was completely absorbed and fascinated and entertained by it. It's beautifully realized." - Sir David Hare.

"Charts with acute accuracy and insight, what an actor's life is really like with great panache and mordant humour." - Richard E. Grant.

"Lovely stuff: accurate, sharp, painful." - Simon Callow.

"The best writing about acting and the actor's life I've ever come across." - Julian Sands.

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.
