Katie Price is set to go straight to the top of the Sunday Times Bestseller list this week, with her new novel Paradise. The former glamour model's fifth novel, the final instalment in her Angel trilogy, will go straight in at number one for hardback fiction, outselling the number two book by two copies to one, her publisher, Random House, said.
Price, who chooses the plots for her books, penned by ghostwriter Rebecca Farnworth, said: "I think it's brilliant that it's number one. "It just goes to show people that when I really put my mind to something it makes number one and it's brilliant and I'm absolutely over the moon."
If you click on the link below, you can see Katie, one of Britain's true intellectuals, in all her glory.
Now, if you are not familiar with Katie Price (or whatever her last name is, this week) aka 'Jordan' (so popular they named a country after her), please allow me to briefly tell you that in Britain, she is famous for being a model, a 'reality' television star and having a 'boob job'.
So you can imagine my shock when I discovered that this highly talented and most articulate intellectual required a 'ghostwriter' to formulate her stories.
Now doesn't that just warm your heart? You may be an inspiring writer who has worked tirelessly to get yourself published. You may have had the frustration of getting that rejection letter. So all you have to do is wear a bikini, or, if you are a guy, perhaps a pair of micro Speedos and blatantly publicise yourself via reality shows such as 'Big Blogger'. The boob job part may not be a necessity. Especially if you are a guy with impressive 'man boobs'.
So, once again, I've been thinking. Yep, that's twice in one week. If Katie aka Jordan can have a ghostwriter, why don't I get me a good ol 'ghost blogger'? Instead of me sitting here trying to think up something, anything, let someone else write it while I take all the plaudits. Of course, this could seriously backfire if the ghost blogger was an even crapper writer than yours truly.
Yet, as they say, just who are 'they', nothing ventured, nothing gained. So I've been looking for potential ghost bloggers to take over and write this blog. Well, I have been disillusioned in my search. My thinking, yes even more thinking, got quite desperate and I typed in 'ghost blogger' in the search engine. What I got back was something about 'Casper', Wyoming, Casper the friendly ghost, Jacob Marley (not related to a reggae singer) and an option to go try out some ghost hunting.
This means, well in the meantime at least, that I will have to keep writing my own blog. I could try again. Maybe check out the situation from ghost to ghost, wait til the ghost is clear and continue haunting, I mean hunting for that elusive ghost blogger. That's the spirit.
The above photograph is of my friend from the garden, 'Scarecat'. Scarecat has done a very good job of keeping cats from shitting in my vegetable patch. Scarecat says, 'Boo'. Are you scared? Perhaps you might say 'boo' back and that might be boo as in boo this blog is crap and could really you the services of a ghost blogger. It's enough to make you want to kick me in the 'ghoulies'.
Now very briefly back to Katie, famous for a boob job and being an idiot. She has a television show titled, 'What Katie Did Next'. I've no doubt you are eager too, if you haven't done already, check out this British icon. I would like to have my own television show, 'What Klahanie Did Next'. I just know you would be an avid viewer of my show because you are so fascinated by my fun-filled and totally awesome life. And speaking of ghosts, I bet you could see right through this posting. BOO!!
