Does She Look Like A Novelist?
Doesn't it just get your goat when Simon & Schuster buys books from rappers like Lil' Kim, (an unwritten novel for $40K) and Foxy Brown (an unwritten memoir for $75K)? I mean, I could have told S&S that the ladies weren't going to deliver. Think of all the time, trouble, and money saved (because now they have to sue to get their paid advances back) by not being seduced by celebrity and having instead bought my (half-written, but amazing) novel. I'd even go get arrested if I thought it would help.
