I thought this book was kind of silly, really. Granted, Sammy might have felt that she was going nowhere in the job, but she actually had a job that was great for launching her writing career: lots of downtime, low stress, and lots of time away from the business. It didn't make sense to me that she'd give up that security when she hadn't gotten any royalty checks from her books, even if she went the self publishing route. If it was severely impacting her writing time, I could see the need for quitting the job, but I didn't see a lot of that happening. Rather stupid move on Samantha's part!
