Free sample

Five friends quit their jobs to chase what they love. Rent looms. Hilarity ensues. 

What if you had no daily grind, no soul-sucking job, and a few smart, passionate friends to watch your back and split the bills? Could you find a way to make ends meet and then pour every moment into what you really love?

Five friends take the plunge to find out.

Sushi and her roommate Summer are tired of working dead-end jobs for corporate drone bosses. So when their friend Alex quits his job and his roommate Zen proposes a grand experiment, they rope in their geeky friend Otto and move in together to build a life of art and freedom and tea and scheming.

Of course, they still have to make rent, and the evil next door neighbor is hell-bent on getting them kicked out, and Summer may be just a little bit hopelessly in love with Alex.

But it should all work out. Right?

By turns silly and deep, daring and sweet, The Dream World Collective is a cozy romp for anyone who cares about creativity, community, and muffins.

“Luxury living at Hubris Towers: Isn’t it time you get what you really deserve?”

Comedy of manners meets comedy of errors in this madcap series for fans of Fawlty Towers and P. G. Wodehouse.

When Jimmy Acorn applies to become the new concierge at Hubris Towers, there are a few things he doesn’t know. He doesn’t know how he’s going to make rent. He doesn’t know why wealthy tenants would move into a half-constructed building. And he doesn’t know, strictly speaking, just what a concierge does.

What he does know is that eviction is looming and a PhD in literature isn’t nearly as marketable as he’d hoped, so any job will do. But a life of conciergery at Hubris Towers isn’t just any job. On paper, it’s the future of luxury living. In practice, there are still a few kinks to work out.

Set aside the manager’s grim courtesies and the incomprehensible intercom, get past the infuriatingly helpful bellhop, and Jimmy still finds himself juggling eccentric tenants, a looming inspection, and shadowy underworld connections. And in the midst of it all, he needs to look sharp and stay un-awkward, just in case the lovely Ms. Leonelle breezes by.

Nevertheless, with a little luck, a lot of hard work, and the help of an unexpected band of friends, Jimmy will find a way through, even if he does get a little damp or...well, sombreroed in the process.

This volume contains all eight episodes of Hubris Towers Season 1, previously released individually. Plus, the winter holidays come to Hubris Towers in an all-new bonus short.
