    Christmas is coming and I keep seeing more and more adverts for books by Celebrity authors, mainly kids books.

    While I don't mind celebrities writing books, I wonder how much of it as a marketing exercise in parting gullible parents from cash.

    Am I wrong and they are more than talented than I think and they have just as much right as anyone else to release books? Or is it ghostwritten and a name slapped on the cover for profit?

    Anyone able to enlighten me?

    PS: Are there any celebrities as authors who are really good and worth a read?

    I think its the second one.

    Jeffrey Archer. He wasn't known for being an author first. He was known for being an MP and in jail.
