You Have No Chance of Getting Laid at AWP Next Year…
cause if James Franco shows up to shill his short story collection, all the chicks will be on it. ALL. THE. CHICKS.
“Know what’s hot?” purrs gossip gangsta Perez Hilton… “Talent and intelligence!”
oh how wrong you are, perezers! at least when it comes to literature, neither talent nor intelligence make one “hot”. so what does make one hot? duh, good looks. like the good looks one consistently sees james franco sporting.
so what makes a hot author? a hot agent, i guess. because James Franco has a forthcoming book and you, well, you have a handful of rejections from Conjunctions.
Franco has sold a collection of short stories to the Scribner imprint of Simon & Schuster. His powerhouse agent, Richard Abate, of Endeavor, confirmed it yesterday.
NOTE TO SELVES: GET AN AGENT.
