Hot on the heels of not making stuff up and then writing a memoir which claims it happened to you, here is some advice about writing a juicy tell-all account of being a concierge at a prestigious Chicago hotel (specifically, the Four Seasons):
Don’t neglect to mention to your publishers that you signed a confidentiality agreement.
(I’d really love to know what that confidentiality agreement did cover, if personal details about guests weren’t part of it.)
Meanwhile, Chicagoist shows you the cover art we’ll never see.* Hmmm, I wonder what the black-market price on those ARCs** will be?
*Until it gets recycled and used on another several book covers. More on that in another entry.
**Advance reading copies. The ones the reviewers get.
