Unpublished authors-there's hope!

Ed here: Christine O'Donnell is only the latest. Snooki and at least one of her moron friends have book deals. So does one of the most histrionic of The Housewives, maybe the blonde who crashed Obama's party. I ask with no guile--who reads this shit anyway?

Christine O’Donnell Considering Book Deal Offers
By Jason Boog on November 5, 2010 12:31 PM

U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell lost her Congressional bid in Delaware this week, but now she is considering book deal offers.

O’Donnell (pictured, via) spoke about the future in a Today Show interview. Fox News recently noted that they have “no plans to hire her” at the network (as some had speculated).

Here’s an excerpt from the interview: “I honestly have no clue. I’m looking at the short-term, we have a lot of opportunities from book deals that I’m exploring, but like I said, for now, I would like to continue to be an advocate for those in Delaware , the farmers who have never had a voice in Washington, I would like to see what I can do to help bring their issues to the spotlight.”

Some people (as opposed to publishers) buy, no one much reads. Hell, even people who've accomplished something, such as Carol Burnett, can't move books no matter how much the publishers pay for and hype them.

Both my sons are are owed beatings (severe ones at that--if only I were younger) for buying Baba-Booey's (of Howard Stern fame) sure to be a classic literary achievement. We joked about it on Facebook (back and forth a bit) but they're my sons and I love them ... which sort of reminds me of how many times my mother, upon hearing I was pinched again, said, "He's my son ... what can i say?"

I don't think it means they're bad people who actually pay hard earned money for these books ... maybe they have bad taste?

Or it's the latest fad?

Help me here, somebody ...

Sounds like she's trawling for a book deal. There's not an iota of evidence she's been offered one.

Celebrity books date back at least a century and a half that I know of and likely further back than that. But there are celebrity books and celebrity books. Sophia Loren, yes; Snooki, not so much. :)

Sophia Loren, indeed - with rookie photos!
