Celebrities and books don’t usually have a good reputation when paired together.
Particularly when it comes to children’s books, a lot of celebrities like to try out their writing skill. There are mixed options on this within the author community, with many posting their opinions online. Another new online phenomenon is poets being noticed and published though their Instagram and Tumblr poetry posts. As writers begin to move to social media to showcase their work, and publishers begin to follow to look for new talent, once again it seems that the publishing path has been re-geared toward younger generations who tend to use more of Instagram and less of Facebook. With this, as well as more and more celebrity authors, we look below at the affects they have on publishing:
I am the Social Media Coordinator and Author Relations Manager for BiblioCrunch. And I love to read, OF COURSE! From the classics to YA and children's, you can find me reading it all. I have a masters in publishing from NYU's Print and Digital Media Studies masters program, and have undergraduate degrees in music, marketing, and english. I have a passion for reading, music, and travel. My goal is to travel to as many places around the world as possible. If you need to find me, you can catch me traveling all around the world at any chance I get – always with a book in hand!
