It’s no secret that pre-existing fame makes it a cinch to find a book deal.

Some in the literary world, though, are a bit concerned about this trend — in particular, when it comes to children’s books — reports the Guardian.

They argue that it means less publicity energy, less shelf space, and fewer readers for lesser-known authors who deserve that same spotlight.

Others in the industry dismiss such concerns, saying that a rising tide can lift all boats.
