    Hi, Sarah,

    My name is Gregory, and I have a book I would like for you to consider for a review. The genre is contemporary fiction, and here’s the blurb:

    “The world was never innocent. But I was.” –Benjamin Camden

    See the world through the eyes of the greatest Hollywood legend that never was.

    Benny Camden is the mind behind the most innovative show on television. When his brother dies in an attack at the onset of the Vietnam War, he uses his power and position in an act of protest without considering the consequences. His grief sets off a chain of events that will change him forever and lead to some of the most legendary moments in film history.

    But his true legacy is not in his movies or his talent as an entertainer. It is his daughter.

    Weston begins an epic Hollywood saga spanning three generations – the first chapter of Gregory Attaway’s The Great Ones. It’s the story of a man’s quest for identity and purpose. For love and family. For his soul.

    Thanks in advance for your time and consideration!
