AUTHORS IN THE NEWS

Which member of the extended royal family has dabbled in publishing….with disastrous results? 

Poor Pippa Middleton. reviews of “Celebrate”, her first book on entertaining, were dreary. Now, British press reveals Pippa’s plans to publish two follow-up books have been shelved.

The 29-year-old was paid a reported £400,000 advance – unheard of for an untested author. Pippa’s next titles were to be on organizing the perfect wedding on a budget; then, children’s parties.

Sources say one reason the book failed was the palace controlled and squashed Pippa’s marketing plans. What’s an almost royal author to do?
