One day only!

I’m back in Phoenix after my North Carolina Christmas, and I’m raring to go. First up: a one-day Kindle special for my funny Hollywood memoir The Opposite of Famous. It’s on Jan. 10 in the US and Jan. 11 in the UK.  No, this book isn’t a romance like the ones I write as Suki McMinn, but it has a real romance in it–mine! After dating lots of Mr. Wrongs in Hollywood, including Jerry Seinfeld for eight rocky years, I finally married at forty-four to a boy from my high school in Asheville, NC. How’s that for a happily ever after?

A shy young woman traveled from North Carolina to Hollywood in 1984, and within a mere few decades, struggled and clawed her way up to become the opposite of famous.

Susan McNabb worked on thousands of jobs as a model, actor, and extra, as an assistant to casting, wardrobe, makeup, and finally, to Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. Single well into her forties, McNabb rubbed elbows and other body parts with scores of interesting men, including Jerry Seinfeld for eight rocky years.

This hilarious collection of essays chronicles her adventures and a life of dogged persistence in a business that shows you the door more often than a path to success. Learn what it takes to work as a fashion model, a commercial actor, a film extra, and a butt double. And to build a rich life in which the journey is the real reward.
