Naively, I thought that celebrity novels were the result of the celebrity's fancying his or her chances and being accepted because their name would sell the book. Only this morning I heard on the radio a well-known actor saying that she had been "commissioned" to write a novel. This is wrong, wrong, wrong. If this kind of thing goes on, there is almost no chance for the rest of us. It shows only too clearly that it isn't the quality of the book that matters; it's who wrote it. Grrrr!
