One of my clients is mentioned in this recent LA Times article that I thought was worth sharing. It’s interesting to see how the Internet continues to find new talent and how some of that talent translates to books, and other types of media, like film and television. The article notes that most bloggers become book authors before Hollywood takes interest. There are always going to be hits and misses: even bloggers with a big following don’t always translate on the book side to big sales. Heather Armstrong of Dooce has lots of traffic, but her first book didn’t make as big a splash as I’m guessing her publisher hoped. And Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman, had a huge hit with her first book, which her publisher didn’t pay a huge advance for.
Enjoy the piece, and if there are any blogs you’re reading that you love and haven’t yet found a home as a book or film or tv show, let us know!
