Unpublished Novels and the Murdering Harvard Neurobiologist

Can't drum up any interest in your unpublished novels?  Easy-peasy.... if you don't mind the part about murdering some colleagues.  Or maybe it was the three unpublished manuscripts that made Amy Bishop do it. Anyway, just more evidence that we are mostly a reality-crap-t.v. culture now.

So true. If you're (in)famous, it's easy to get a book published no matter how terrible it is--Speidi, Lauren Conrad, Bam Margera, Kanye West, et al.

Like, duh. Murdering her coworkers just gave her some platform. Hell-oooo, you can't just expect an agent like moi to take a fiction novel on its own merits. You wanna sell me a novel about a biologist who, like, goes, like, postal when she doedn't get tenure? You gotta be a biologist who goes postal. Cha, I gotta go to the mall now.

This is what I'm talking about. Now that she committed a crime, agents will WANT to publish her novels.

If agents want to publish her novel it's because the same people who followed Tiger Wood's non-presser presser today would gladly fork over 24.95 to read it. People sell what other people buy.

i would have thought her relation to John Irving would be enough, but i guess her new found "platform" will really seal the deal for her now. can she collect royalties while on death row? i think any money she gets from publishing her books (which believe me, they will get published) should go to the victims.
