It's easy to get stuck while trying to pursue your dream of becoming an actor. It's quite a ride, but certainly one you don't want to get stuck on. Pursuing a career in Hollywood through the years has led actress and author Abbie Cobb to some great decisions and opportunities, but not without making a few mistakes along the way. Stuck on a Ferris Wheel is a must-have guide for any actor starting out a career in LA.

In her first book, Cobb offers play-by-play instructions for being a working actor in LA. Acting is a business, and this book explains how to market yourself, pay the bills, get into SAG, and maintain your personal values along the way. With candor and humor, Abbie offers practical advice to help actors new to the LA scene walk into an audition with confidence. She also gives encouragement for navigating those moral gray areas of Hollywood.

From film to TV to theatre, Stuck on a Ferris Wheel covers topics like headshots, resumes, different types of auditions, how to get representation, ideas for marketing yourself, survival jobs, and when to do what! How do you get an agent? What makes a good headshot? Where should I live? How can I land a role? Heck, how can I even get an audition? How do I pay my bills while pursuing my dreams? What can I do right now to help make them happen? If you want to get started in this business, you'll have to work hard. No book is going to take the hard work out of making it in Hollywood. But can eliminate a lot of the guesswork and confusion that make the journey so tough when you're just starting out.

As Abbie shares the lessons she's learned on her own journey, you'll find yourself laughing, underlining and starring passages, taking notes, and energized to put your newfound information (and inspiration!) into action. The following need-to-know topics are covered in Stuck on a Ferris Wheel:

-Planning the Trip
-Headshots
-Resume
