What about the Gilbert Gottfried factor?

Dammit.  I thought I was going to be the one to make the witty relevant historical reference.

Author Todd McCaffrey knows better. His mother, author Anne McCaffrey, will reach down and smack him on the rear several times before he successfully falls for such a thing.  She was a tough lady.

This.  Do we really have to say this again?  Psychics are scam artists.

If she is that naive about the world, her books must be crap!
Or best sellers to puberty stricken girls who still think they will be getting a Prince and a Castle and a white pony when they get married.

She's 65 and this is the pic they use in the article:

FTFA:Unlike the characters in her epic romance novels, best-selling author Jude Deveraux testified Tuesday that she was miserable and unlucky in love.

First, her real name can't be Jude Deveraux.  It's probably Judy Davis or Julie Devers.  And of course she's miserable and unlucky in love, she's comparing her life to that of her characters.  She's so lost in her delusions that she thinks a psychic can help.  I'm sure everybody who knows her saw this coming.

She's not a novelist. She's a romance novelist.

Of course she is an idiot.

World Famous novelist? In what world? I have never heard of her until today!

Who is being paid in a genre that's had an increase in readers now that for some really odd reason, teenage boys are picking them up too.

Hell, considering the reader increase. If I could write cheesy romance I'd be happy to run the risk of becoming a top author getting paid more than some do. It would help a lot with my bills.

'best-selling' does not equal 'world-famous'.

/never heard of her

The Flexecutioner: 'best-selling' does not equal 'world-famous'.

/never heard of her


Hell, I'd settle for best-selling. Screw world-famous if best-selling brings in the money. Publishing companies base the advance check for the next book, on the sales from before.  If the sales from the last don't increase beyond the numbers from the previous, the check doesn't increase.

And as I said, readership for romance novels is actually up not down.  If I did have the somewhat questionable talent to write a romance series that actually increased in sales each novel, I wouldn't give a damn if people thought romance authors were idiots.
