Introducing They Got a Book Deal; Why Not Me? — LOLMatts

Hello! Today Blog Will Hunting is pleased to introduce a new series we’re calling “They got a book deal; why not me??”

Blogs that became books

Perhaps the publishing deluge has slowed down in recent months, but for a while there it seemed that every blog that tipped into the pop cultural consciousness would proceed to fall into a big bucket of book deals.

These days, blogging advice sites are full of tips on how to get your own book deal (discover yourself! get an agent!), and the excellent blog Look At This Fucking Idea For a Blog-to-Book Deal is thriving.

Not to be left behind, this particular blog, which happens to be about the 1997 film Good Will Hunting, is embarking on an exploration of some of these interweb memes that have made the transition from Twitter tiny url’s to your local bookstore’s new paperback section.  After all, if they got a book deal, WHY NOT ME??
