Prince Harry’s ‘next dig at Royal Family makes perfect sense’ after book controversy

Prince Harry’s ‘next dig at Royal Family makes perfect sense’ after book controversy

Prince Harry revealed all about his time in the Royal Family in his debut memoir Spare and there are ongoing rumors he is set to spill even more secrets in a rumoured follow-up book

Prince Harry could write a follow-up to Spare

 

Prince Harry has been encouraged to write a follow-up to his debut memoir Spare, with one author saying it “makes commercial sense”.

The Duke of Sussex shocked readers with his first book as he revealed all about his time in the Royal Family. In Spare, Harry opened up about his childhood in the public eye as well as the breakdown of his relationships with his brother Prince William and father King Charles.

The book was a huge success, with fans rushing to buy a copy when it was released. Celebrity ghostwriter Joshua Lisec has now told The Mirror US that Harry could make a lot of money if he writes a sequel.

Joshua said: “It seems that this rumor quote unquote leaked on purpose to see how the public would react, almost as market research to see do people go, ‘Wow yes that’s amazing,’ or, ‘Wait what we already know his story, he already did a book’.”

He added: “That’s my hypothesis, that’s not based on any inside information besides what we know publishers are focused on which is book sales and when a book like Spare has been so successful, we understand that the publishing industry survives because of celebrity books. All else is a labor of love project.

“It is celebrity books that keep the industry alive, they keep publishers semi-profitable and so you have one book that is as successful as Spare, it makes financial sense, it makes commercial sense to explore the possibility of a sequel.”

Joshua also suggested Harry could write a prequel to Spare, focusing on a specific point in his earlier life. He told us: “Celebrity ghostwriting is difficult relative to other forms of ghostwriting because when you are a public figure whose personal brand already exists, the book cannot rebrand you and succeed. It must extend the personal brand.”

He added: “An aspiring author who’s let’s say a CEO or investor or entrepreneur where there’s been articles out there about them, they received awards, some industry acclaim but they’re not exactly a household name, they can decide how the public receives them when they release their book. Already public fingers can’t do that.”

Instead, Joshua suggested they can “expand” on things to add to the already existing public perception. He continued: “Or maybe there is a dark experience in their past that was the inciting incident and the goal of the author is to become an advocate or activist on that particular issue and the book enables that career transition because now in interviews, they’re talking about that thing that happened to them when they were seven years old and then they can advocate for that particular issue.”
