The flip side of my rant from yesterday on celebrity writers are that the ones who are actually good tend to be lumped in with the rest. I would like to mention those writers who put out quality work and just happen to be celebrities as well. I find the best ones are usually comedians and their voice is already clearly defined.
I own a few books by these authors and they are good. The writing is tight and the talent is obvious.
The trend began with celebrities writing their autobiographies and now has branched out beyond that into fiction writing. I believe that everyone has a right to explore their talent but I do not believe that celebrities should have a better chance of publication for their fiction work than the average aspiring writer.
Like me.....and you.
