Regardless of her downfall, she's still more publishable than most writers that I know. Most writers I know don't have movie options of any kind. She may get a small advance for her books, but something tells me that it's still larger than mine. (And mine was larger than a friend who got her book published by a university that didn't give her an advance at all.)
Always stay grateful. There are always those doing better than you and those doing worse.
(Thanks Los Angelista for giving me a heads-up about this article.)
