It has come to my attention in the book community and on YouTube that Bloombury has team up with authors and Youtubers to write a anthology coming out in summer of 2017.
Where authors authors write the story and Youtubers write a essay all base on villain. One author and one Youtuber will be paired up together.
Now here is my problem with it. It feels like a cash grab. It was announced this month that the book is being publish next year. Not by the Bloomsbury but by the Youtubers who are working on it. I see dollar signs in your furture Bloomsbury.
Some of the Authors are booktubers who have not written a book.So this is the first time being published.
I think my main problem is why get booktubers to write essays. It seems a bit collage/high school to me. Why not pair them up to write one side as the hero and the other side as the villian. I am sure after I post this the company will steal my idea but those are the breaks of being on social media.
I also feel that book companies and using YouTube as a way to make money just look at girl online by Zoe Sugg which was ghost written and everyone ran to buy it.
There I am sure so many amazing authors who have yet t be discovered why not publish them and not booktubers. I am sure there is some great books that booktubers will write one day.
I am sure if the company held a contest yearly just like viz media did a few years back when they were looking for new talent. It is thanks to that we have Scott Pilgram Vs. The World.
Before I go I want to say the title is great. For people who dislike the book. Because you love to hate us.
So I am going to end things here. Will I buy the book? Nope.
