More about this book

Everything seems to be going right for Nina - hot boyfriend, a sparkling social life and a dream job in the glamorous world of magazines. Surely nothing could possibly spoil this perfect picture? A fun and fast-paced new novel from the editor of CLEO.


When Nina Morey gets her perfectly pedicured toe on the first rung of the highly-competitive magazine publishing ladder, she can't believe her luck.

Then she lands the hottest man in town AND her best friend relocates from the other side of the world to help her paint the town neon pink. Nina's life has suddenly turned from dull to dream come true.

Soon she's scaling the magazine ladder faster than you can say 'Anna Wintour', securing dream job after dream job, while schmoozing her way around Sydney's hottest spots.

Life is good. What could possibly go wrong?

Strap on your highest heels for a fast-paced peek inside the glossy world of the Australian magazine industry.

Gemma Crisp developed her love of books and magazines while growing up on a sheep farm in the middle of Tasmania in the prehistoric days before the internet. It wasn't until she'd hit the bright lights of London some years later that she realised she could get paid to write about mascara, threesomes and celebrities (not necessarily in that order!). After acing her first magazine internship, thanks to being a photocopying and coffee-fetching ninja, Gemma moved to Sydney and has spent the last 12 years working for some of Australia's glossiest magazines, including New Woman, Girlfriend, OK!, Cosmopolitan Bride and NW. She popped her editorship cherry at teen bible DOLLY and until December 2012, was the editor of the iconic title, CLEO, where she spent her days fending off wannabe Eligible Bachelors, wrangling celebrity publicists, attempting to craft the perfect coverline and trying not to buy more shoes.
