This book deal just got announced:
The younger sisters on E!’s hit reality show Keeping Up with The Kardashians Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner’s dystopian novel that takes place in a world none of us have ever seen and will follow two sisters on a journey filled with terror, mystery, drama and love, to Charles Suitt of Karen Hunter, for publication in Summer 2013, by Mel Berger of William Morris Endeavor (NA).
If you buy this book, I won’t put a flaming sack of dog feces on your doorstep. Nope. I’ll put one in your refrigerator. And I’ll put another in your bed.
I understand that publishers invest money in any author when they contract her or him to write a book, and it’s a risk, and the publishers are incentivized to go for the sure thing. But this is a debasement and uglification of our literary culture. Charles Suitt of Karen Hunter could have rewarded many kinds of virtue in the world of aspiring writers, and he chose instead to throw more money at reality TV stars.
You vote with your money. Vote against this crap.
