Celebrity perfumes, clothing lines - and novels

Celebrity "written" novels have been around for a while, but I'm seeing more and more YAs.

"Like a branded fragrance or clothing line, the novel — once quaintly considered an artistic endeavor sprung from a single creative voice — has become another piece of merchandise stamped with the name of celebrities, who often pass off the book as their work alone despite the nearly universal involvement of ghostwriters. And the publishing industry has been happy to oblige."

Or, as Snooki says, "I wrote it. Cause, like, it’s all my language.”
