Graham would love to see it turned into a television series.
"To me this is a series," she said, "because the nature of this life is very episodic, and it's up and down and there is a goal that you'd like to have at the end that could take three or five or seven years."
She said that even though Franny has Broadway dreams, her story is more "My So-Called Life" than "Smash."
"It's not big moments, it's small. It's coming of age, it's struggling. It's a happy, less naked 'Girls,' you know?"
There's even talk of a second novel, and Graham owes it all to Diane Keaton.
"We were doing this movie (2007's 'Because I Said So') and apropos of nothing she just looked at me and said 'You should write a book.' She wasn't necessarily talking about a memoir... and she just kind of lifted me up for whatever reason, and it just stuck with me. I just thought, 'Diane Keaton said I should write a book. Who else am I waiting for to tell me!?' And it was just so powerful. Who knows why she said it or what she meant, but I did it."
