I'm so happy. Having a really, really good time

Wow. I've seen the future of marketing fiction and it looks like this.

Apparently, the next contestant in the Devil Wears Prada sweepstakes is upon us.

Holly Peterson's novel, The Manny (nanny but a man, get it?) is poised to ooze all over the summer with all the stuff one needs to guarantee a hit.

A young, promotable author with pedigree, a slickly produced promo film, and most importantly, a two book $1 million advance; so you know it's going to be promoted to the outer edges of the known universe.

All it seems to lack is an ending that doesn't make one unintentionally laugh out loud.

This just might be the funniest thing ever.
