Picture the scene. A table full of writers who are working on their first books. They have been working for a couple of years, or maybe just talking about the books for a couple years. Well, they get together and start dishing about the publishing industry. The book they can't stop talking about is Twilight. They can't believe that people read that crap! They can't believe that publishers will give so much money for that crap! And did you hear that Paris Hilton has a book deal? She's not even a writer; she's a model! And there was an article about a #@!$% sixteen year old who has a book coming out! Sixteen years old? What could she possibly have to say!! Next thing you know, Beyonce is going to have a bestseller! And so on, and so on, and so on.
