While millions of good writers are struggling to get their first book published, Lauren Conrad of course already has a three book deal and the first of her books will be for sale beginning June 16th. The book, entitled LA Candy is the fictional account of a young girl who moves to LA and unexpectedly becomes the star of a reality show. I'm guessing Lauren had to really dig deep for that life experience. Are people who watch The Hills really going to be that desperate to read a book by Lauren? Are you telling me that HarperCollins couldn't find any other worthy authors out there? Whatever money they are paying Lauren, I am sure it is about ten times what they would pay any other new author. It might even be more. I would much prefer they gave 10 authors a chance at a first novel. I'm guessing that one of those novels would end up selling more than the Lauren Conrad book will.
Oh, that's right. It isn't just one book, we get two more after this from Lauren. On her blog, Lauren says that the books “are definitely influenced by my own life. Some of the characters may symbolize people in my life, but it is in no way calling anyone out. I want them to transport people to another place.”
Where are they going to transport people to? It is going to be The Hills but with words. This kind of thing just makes me sick, especially because I guarantee you she didn't write the book on her own.
