The extremely occasional blog of Colleen Lindsay, professional nerd, cat herder, publishing optimist, and sartorial tragedy.
ugh... why can't I get 2 mil to write a pointless memoir, too?
Granted, she's funny and her book will probably sell, but a 2Mil advance?That could feed and take care of a bunch of authors already out there busting their but to make it happen.Shame. In this economy they're still taking celebrity over writing talent.
It wasn't the authors I was thinking about.Bad timing for an announcement like this.
Well, I'd work for Mariska Hargitay... any day!Haste yee back ;-)
Exactly, Colleen. And there's another book I'll never read.
What I want to know is do those kinds of books actually sell enough to make up for that kind of advance? I don't know anyone who reads them.And more editor lay-offs suck :(
I am apparently not the target market, since I had to follow the link to find out who the heck Kathy Griffin IS. I don't know whether to laugh or cry about such a staggering advance in these tumultuous times. Crazy.
Sheesh, 2 mil to Kathy Griffin when people are getting laid off left and right in the industry? That's just wrong!
I too wanted to find out who Kathy Griffin is, but the page is no longer there, so I still have no idea! lol
I guess plastic surgery + annoying personality = $2 million. Where is the justice in this?
Kathy is a comedian. http://popwatch.ew.com/popwatch/2009/02/kathy-griffin-m.htmlIt's too bad that this money isn't used to keep editors employed, bills paid, and imprints open. I'm sure Kathy would be fine with big royalty checks if this is a surefire best seller.
