How to become rich and famous 16/04/2013

The other day I read an article where the writer suggests ways of becoming rich and famous. All along I was under the impression you can be either of the two and not both but the article  dispelled my belief. The three options the writer suggests are 1. To become an actor; 2. Join politics and 3. Write a book. Subsequently I began analyzing  the three possibilities and came to the following conclusion. The first  required you  to belong to a family of actors, that too leading ones, for the second it was mandatory that you are a direct descendant/ relative of  a family which  faithfully  not only adhered to the saying-‘make hay while the sun shines’ but   proved money can buy everything under the sun including the media  as well.

The  only option left was the last and  the writer himself had  gone into detail  as how to write and what to write and most important how to market your books to get rich. I thought  this was the most sensible  suggestion and also practical and no age or qualification  required to make a beginning  as a writer. This is evident from the increasing number of books written  by writers as young as 12 and 13 years.

Now coming to the crux of the problem of marketing your books and also gaining name and fame, the writer of the article  has an answer: ‘Buy the whole lot of copies from your publisher and claim  that your book has joined the Best Seller List and this will  automatically  attract the attention of the media and one day your book can also be short listed for a Booker Prize’!
