Pippa Middleton parts from agent
Mar 22, 2013, 12:02 GMT
Pippa Middleton has parted ways from her agent.
The party planner's debut book, entertainment guide 'Celebrate', has suffered poor reviews, widespread criticism and lacklustre sales since its release last year and now she will no longer be represented by David Godwin.
He said: 'I am very sorry it has happened, but yes, it is true; I no longer represent Pippa and I wish her every good luck.'
However, Pippa - the younger sister of Britain's Duchess of Cambridge - doesn't look likely to be ending her literary career just yet, as she recently signed a deal to write a column called Pippa's Friday Night Feasts for Waitrose Kitchen magazine, with the first one appearing next month.
Despite being paid an advance of around Â£400,000, 'Celebrate' sold just 2,000 copies in its first week, and many retailers slashed the Â£25 asking price, with some stocking the book for just Â£6.25.
The tome was mocked for its banal tips such as how to stage a sack race and serving turkey as part of a Christmas meal and it even spawned a spoof twitter account, @PippaTips.
