Stuff publishers like

Speaking of book deals, the popular blog Stuff White People Like introduced to me by Luna (which is a funny blog if you haven’t seen it, but should be titled, What Liberal White People Like was sold to Random House for “more than $350,000.” Those of us who spend years crafting narratives (yes, even memoirs have narratives) could get a little jealous that some people are making enough money to buy a house in the Midwest by writing a bunch of BLOG posts, but it’s all good. There are enough publishing dollars to go around. And who wants to read a real BOOK, anyway?

  1. You could expand the Berkeley list you had started making get a 500,000$ book deal when it is long enough, quit tutoring, and publish your memoir.. yes, it does make me mad that its easier to get “Stuff White People Like” published, than books people spend years crafting. Ugh!
