There's an old cliché that every copywriter has started a novel. But most never get around to finishing it. So, we asked them to do something with those unfinished masterpieces. Donate them – for a novel of unfinished novels by copywriters around the world. 

The idea resonated with failed novelists everywhere, and chapters started to arrive from all over the world. Now, our collection of diverse first chapters is officially available for pre-order. 

Order your copy today, and read the hidden literary works of Chief Creative Officers, Creative Directors and Copywriters from all over the world in multiple languages. 

Here is a list of writers you can expect in the book:
