Lauren Conrad Lands 3-Book Deal

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 Game:

"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.
