Yeah, And How Big Was Her Advance?

There’s nothing like a celebrity bio — and accompanying advance — to get the struggling author’s blood boiling. Heck, we could do trashy sex videos if we wanted. Is it our fault that we’re too smart to leave the tapes in the hands of unscrupulous individuals? This piece only confirms the worst nightmares of each and every author out there. After all, while we struggle with craft and proofreading until our eyes bleed, Paris Hilton (not an author, by the way) has the luxury of having her bio read to her. And even then, it’s a tough proposition. I can only draw solace from the fact that anyone who is writing her memoirs so young has peaked and has nowhere to go but down. Then again, who’s laughing her way to the bank, and who’s sitting here whining about the whole thing?
