      [​IMG]Beth Ostrosky Stern, TV personality, animal activist and wife of famed shock jock Howard Stern, has landed a deal with the Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing imprint, Aladdin Books. Stern plans to write a picture book entitled Yoda Gets a Buddy. She announced on Twitter that all of her proceeds will go on to benefit the North Shore Animal League America’s “Bianca’s Furry Friends” campaign.

      Devin Crane, an artist, has signed on to create the illustrations. This story serves as a sequel to Stern’s 2014 title Yoda: A Cat and His Kittens. The publisher has set the release date for Dec. 1.

      Here’s more from the press release: “In Beth’s newest story, Yoda is busier than ever in the foster kitten room. Enter Buddy, a kitten who is blind. Because Buddy has had to recover from eye surgery, he has been with Beth and Howard longer than any of the other foster kittens and Yoda has made him his fostering partner. The kittens adore Buddy, mimicking his every move, with no clue he is blind. One day Frankie, a new foster, is introduced and from the very first moment, none of the kittens like him. But Buddy loves him and opens the other foster’s eyes and hearts to Frankie’s goodness and sweetness. And when they discover Buddy is the kitten with a true disability and challenge, the fosters learn that love truly is blind.

      Fuck I hate her

    It's been said before, but I just find it incredibly unfair that there are probably thousands of "real" authors who can't catch a break but then you have these "celebrities" getting deals left and right for doing essentially nothing.

    I'd be ashamed to call myself a best selling author if I were her. I really wonder how much time, in grand total she actually spent "writing" these books.

    Wow, this is just so Don Imus-like its sad.

    Obligatory Beth interview will be hell as usual. I wish he would leave Sirius; I'll stop torturing myself that the show will get better again and listen to re-runs.

    The cover looks like Buddy's fucking Yoda. Buddy has his eyes closed and Yoda's expression looks like he's being raped.

    From some info I gathered in August when she first announced the 2nd book.

    Beth has sold 3,371 copies TOTAL for the first Yoda book (from all reporting Internet/online book seller sites from any legitimate reporting source) over the last 365 days.

    (This wouldn't necessarily account for any direct copies Howard purchased from the publisher through any shill intermediaries and has placed into storage for fire wood.)

    Beth has sold 958 copies of the original Yoda since January 1, 2015.

    I guess that classifies her as a best seller and Yoda as world famous in some odd literary circle.

    From August 2015:

    If you co-wrote the text to a children's book would you slap "NY Times Best Selling Author" above your name?

    Would your friends laugh in your face?

    On second thought...

    Lets face it, this is going to happen. But, the best part is reading the book reviews on Amazon the day it drops. Its page of awful, mean and often very funny commentary, fake plots, and flat out hit pieces on the book. It takes months of "damage control" of ridiculous 5-star reviews to bring the book to 3-stars.

    It's just pay-for-play, it's not effecting anyone else.

    As long as Howard puts up all the money, and buys all the books, they don't give a shit.

    will Howard give all his friends Yoda books as Christmas gifts again?

    judging by the boy's face I think he wanted a ps4 game.

    Beth can definitely spin a yarn. She threw some major fiction Howard's way to paper over her real past, and got him thinking she was an actual model.
