Dear Miss Snark:
I was Ladies Home Journal last night (I swear, I only subscribe for "Can This Marriage Be Saved?") - when I read this interview with Fergie. As in The Duchess. She says, "Did you know I'm going to have my own radio show? Maybe on Sirius. And my own TV show! And I've just signed a deal with St. Martins Press to write a historical novel - the next Gone with the Wind. I sold it without one chapter written! It's all in my head. My heroine is Lady Margaret, with red hair, and it takes place in the south of Ireland in 1759. I am Lady Margaret at the end of the day. It will be Pride and Prejudice meets 24!"
Should I just start calling myself Princess April?
Well, if Nicole Ritchie can have a book, why not Her Royal Gelatin too. Actually I'm quite in favor of this cause yanno (tm/pp) someone will need to actually WRITE the damn thing and one of my colleagues specializes in ghost writers (not the suspense kind) so who knows, maybe she'll get a deal out of this.
And no, you can't do that Princess April because I've read your books and I like them a lot and if you stop writing them yourself I'm going to square off with you, circle you like a yapping poodle and pummel you write back to your writing desk.
