I hate to sound like a bitch and everything, but I just saw this on my daily BookBrunch e-newsletter:
In a deal with Modest! Management and Creative Director Dean Freeman, Hodder Editor Fenella Bates has bought world rights in the autobiography of Leona Lewis. The book will feature more than 100 exclusive, behind-the-scenes photographs by Freeman, whose last book with Hodder was David Beckham’s My World. Publication is scheduled for October, tying in with the release of Lewis’ second album.
Oh God. Does she have to “write” an “autobiography”? And if it’s just a book of photos, then why call it an “autobiography” in the first place? Why not call it “Leona: From the Picture Library” or something? In the current economic climate, do these things still sell?
Scratch my eyes out, etc. Grumble grumble.
