Massive Dose of Motherhood Leads to Book Offers

Want a book deal? Aside from doing baseball-related stuff, or being a teen queen, one way to do it is to have a lot of children. That is a real lot of children. At least, that’s what a 33-year-old single mom in California has discovered.

It’s beginning to look like Nadya Suleman, who gave birth to octuplets on January 26th and who already had six children, aged two to seven, will have a book deal before very much time passes. With 14 tiny mouths to feed, though, I can’t imagine she’ll get much time for writing for the next decade or so.

The moral issues are plentiful and you don’t have to go far to find them. Here we’re just tallking book stuff though, and on that topic, Suleman’s publicist had a couple of things to say to AP:
The mother of the world’s longest-living octuplets is being deluged with offers for book deals, TV shows and other business proposals, but has not decided what she might do other than care for her children, her newly hired spokeswoman said Monday.

Hundreds of requests have been made since Nadya Suleman gave birth to six boys and two girls a week ago, said Joann Killeen, president of Killeen Furtney Group, a public relations company.

“She’s the most sought after mom in the world right now,” Killeen said. “Everyone wants to talk to her.”
