For all of you aspiring writers who thought Lauren Conrad’s last bestseller
was a fluke, you can go back to weeping into your moleskin notebooks.
Because she just went from fashion designer to seasoned author.
Conrad had such success with L.A. Candy, that she got a three-book
deal with HarperCollins. Conrad explained the trilogy, titled The Fame
"This series is about a girl who loves everything that fame is, and that's
all she's ever really wanted," Conrad told US Weekly. "[Madison] has fun with the press, she enjoys the attention,
she welcomes scandal!"
The main character, Madison Parker, is an ambitious reality star who has to
deal with scandal and backstabbing friends, but she won’t let that get in
the way of becoming famous.
I don’t know where Conrad conceived the idea for an outlandish character
like this. But she must’ve had to do tons of research to truly understand
what it’s like to be a ruthless reality star.
Conrad insists none of the characters are based on real people; she says
they’re mostly based on Hollywood stereotypes.
So it’s about Heidi Montag, then?
Conrad says she finds time to write “between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.”
“My phone doesn’t ring, and there’s nothing on TV!”
I don’t know what she’s talking about, because there are like, five
back-to-back reruns of The Golden Girls at that exact time. She’s
obviously crazy. That should help with the writing, though.
