tbh though, i like that stephanie 'made it big'. it gives me faith that those of us--okay, me--with less than stellar writing skills could do the same thing if we at least write about something that panders to some hyperobsessive miniculture!

and thank you for the waffles! i now owe you a delicious trate in return :) made my day!

As far as hope for getting published, oh yeah. I feel the same way about The daVinci Code. Stupid, stupid book, but I look at it and go, "Well, if THIS can get published, maybe I have a shot, too."

I also don't knock her success. Just like, as much as I detest what Star Wars has become, the studio tried to screw George Lucas (Star Wars was a tax write-off. They were betting the Sidney Sheldon movie they were releasing that year would be a smash and needed a bomb to balance the books. That's how Lucas got the deal he did). They gambled, they lost. So no matter how much the prequels drive me up the wall, he still bucked the system.

That is fantastic. I'm all for the lolz about bad authors...just goes to show that the trick to selling books certainly isn't all about good writing.
