About this title
"Down and Out in Silicon Valley" is a head-on collision between Saturday Night Live and Facebook, a humorous send-up of Silicon Valley's over-the-top lifestyles. The story is a warm, modern comedy. In today's economic times, people need a good laugh more than ever. The story captures the flavor of Silicon Valley's 24 x 7, hyper-drive world and the challenges faced in balancing life, love and job. Scenes cover a diverse landscape of people and cities - Web 2.0 lifestyles, venture capitalists, surfers, workaholics and Bohemians. "Down and Out in Silicon Valley" is focused on the social experience of the Valley rather than technology. The main character is a smart, hip, funny woman. She works with a wacky bunch. They're funny and heartbreaking at the same time, like your friends. Story Line ... Michelle Beldatori is in an impossible situation. Her credit cards are maxed out. Her boyfriend's laid off. Their savings are gone. She can't face living out of a camper shell and showering in a gym. Not to worry - Michelle's got a plan. She'll get hired by an Internet startup company, earn bonuses and pay the rent. Goodbye to Starbucks barista - hello to Twitter and life on the run. Then she meets Bud. He's got a different plan for Michelle. Bud's going to use her as a scapegoat for his problems. Watch sparks fly as Michelle struggles her way through Silicon Valley's hot new startup. She faces outrageous assignments - scavenger hunter for gourmet Chinese food, planner of wireless ski trips, divorce court nanny, therapist for pets ... Her life shifts again when she meets a wealthy, but misunderstood man. Martin Avery's a rogue and a risk taker, which makes him sexy and unpredictable. But he's caught in a lifestyle that's paid for with his freedom. Find out what happens when Michelle and Martin collide - and her future twists in an unexpected direction.About the Author:
Silicon Valley is famous, yet haunted by paranoia. In this secretive world, the author sold her services to famous logos making it big and small companies fighting for survival. The curious reporter in her was intrigued by the Valley's strange ways. To capture the feeling, she wrote a story that unfolds like a sit-com. The novel is a humorous send-up of over-the-top lifestyles. The fun is for a good cause. Proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders, the American Red Cross and Second Harvest Food Bank.
