A television news anchor comes up with a risky scheme to put himself back on the national stage after losing his beloved job. The only problem is the plan violates his once-unassailable ethics. This novel, newly released by Dog Ear Publishing, follows the former journalist as he becomes the news instead of simply reporting it, risking everything to be back on top.

Dog Ear Publishing releases "Breaking News" by Trent Sherwood.

This is the first novel for author Trent Sherwood, who has been a closet writer his entire adult life.

Losing his coveted evening news anchor job when executives decide to go after a younger audience shatters Matt Taylor’s world in this new novel. The heartbroken journalist, who spent 12 magical years on the NBC news desk, reconnects with former college roommates and comes up with a risky scheme that will correct the injustice. If he chooses to act on this brilliant idea to regain his career, he will have to leave behind the values that have defined his life thus far. Once he has done that, there is no turning back.

Breaking News follows Matt as he tries to get his career back on track, only to face one setback after another. An item stolen from his apartment brings him to the brink of personal ruin, as instead of being a reporter, he has become the focus of a salacious story. As he becomes embroiled in the scheme, Matt soon realizes he has gotten in way over his head. He becomes torn between the desire to revive his career and his personal ethics, realizing that the consequences of failure could be deadly.

This is the first novel for author Trent Sherwood, who has been a closet writer his entire adult life. Sherwood, a financial management consultant and certified public accountant, spent four years on the project. He and his wife, Linda, live with their two sons in Foxboro, Mass.
