And yet – I had to read three different articles to find out her full name. The Independent called her “BUSTY model Jordan” in one article and “glamour model Jordan” in another. Apparently her real name, well sort of real name, is Katie “Jordan” Price.
And she’s not even an author. She’s a …. brand.
Yep. This author who’s been on the bestseller list for weeks in the UK… who has three auto-biographical books out (Being Jordan, Jordan: A Whole New World, and Jordan: Pushed to the Limit) and also writes books for pre-teen girls and is writing a series of picture books for 4-8 year olds – hasn’t actually written any of them.
The publishers supply the ghost writers to do the donkey work. Jordan's job is to be the brand.Another Independent article said:
Her first memoir, Being Jordan, sold 1m copies. Her teen novel, Crystal, sold more than all of last year's Booker nominees combined, and just this week Price was shortlisted as Best Kids Author at the British Book Awards…Oh, she also “writes” novels set in the glamour/music/TV world.
Last year her "novel", Crystal, outsold the entire Booker shortlist by a factor of about 12 to one.Glamour/Busty not-a-writer Jordan is raking in the money apparently.
The mum of three has clocked up more than two million sales worth €21m in just four years….she raked in €13m with her first two autobiographies and already has €3m from the latest chapter of her life…The 30-year-old has apparently made €4m from two novels…Her editor says:
In many people’s hearts she occupies a position which used to be held by Princess Diana.Apparently, all Jordan’ books are ghostwritten by Rebecca Farnsworth. Wonder what she’s making?
