Posthumous Publishing, Part 17, Prestige

The Pros and Cons of Publishing Posthumously

Part 17: World’s Most Prestigious Cemeteries

A list of the top ten graveyards is easily found on the internet, however, the criteria for the would-be posthumous author might not be “most scenic,” “most haunted,” nor “most populated.” Who lays beside you might be equally as important as who doesn’t. Celebrity-only cemeteries are hard to come by and most require an invitation or a lengthy questionnaire. An alternative idea is to create your own “mecca,” especially if you’ve spent any time on the best seller list. For obscure authors, another option presents itself: have yourself interred close to your agent, editor or publisher. Despite all this, the top destination remains Père Lachaise in Paris.
