One of the Koobug team was listening to the radio the other day. A well known actress was being interviewed about her new book. Not, it would seem her first, but her only work of fiction to date.
She described how she had been approached by her publisher to write the book, and now she was broadcasting to about 5 million people. She has received air time ( and no doubt TV time) for well over a week. He book has been widely reviewed.
It is the privileged position of the celebrity who writes. It is manifestly unfair and frustrating to those of talent who receive nothing but rejection and indifference.
I have no idea how good the book is (or isn't) and Koobug has no issue with celebrities writing books.
Koobug is here to give writers a platform and readers an opportunity to discover authors and poets ignored by the establishment, in all its forms.
We are not radicals. We admire publishing houses and the talent they can promote.
We are trying to establish an artistic meritocracy. It's a simple as that.
