The Rebecca Black of Novel Writing

Rebecca Black's parents paid for her to make a music video.  In the long run this probably wasn't such a bad idea.  She can make sounds and there is always autotuning. She acheived some kind of b-class 'famous for beng famous' status.

Gloria Tesch's parents paid to publish novels, starting when she was 13 years old.   And an unintentionally hilarious book trailer.  And apparently (God help us) an upcoming movie. Unless said parents are obscenely wealthy, I doubt we will ever see the much-vaunted Maradonia themepark.

But the sad thing is, while she can write words, a lot of them, you can't auto-tune a novel.
