When Lisa discovers that her favorite book series is really the product of committee writing by publishers (with an actress posing as the author), Homer and Bart decide to gain fame the same way until a real publisher wants to publish their work and change it into yet another vampire love story based on Twilight.

Guest stars NeilGaiman

!! Tropes:

* AdamWesting: Neil Gaiman
* BrokenPedestal: Lisa finding out the author of the ''Angelica Buttons'' series is really an actress and that her favorite books are written by the publishers.
* TheCaper: Technically only the last part is an out-and-out caper, but it feels like one from the moment Bart and Homer cook up their idea to write a money-making book.
* DoingItForTheArt: InUniverse. Lisa, but she is unable to write anything. The other group, [[MoneyDearBoy driven by greed]], is much more productive, so much so that they end up liking their finished work more than the money and defect to Lisa's side.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: At the beginning.
* ExecutiveMeddling: In-universe. Homer and Bart originally created a fantasy novel that's best described as [[CaptainErsatz Harry Potter with trolls]], but when it actually gets published, the company plans to turn it into yet another [[{{Twilight}} vampire romance series for preteen girls]].
* KansasCityShuffle and NoodleIncident: Homer and Bart did something in Kansas City that was illegal. We don't find out what it is.
* NeverLearnedToRead: Neil Gaiman somehow manages to have a writing career, despite this.
* StrictlyFormula: The ''Angelica Buttons'' series and other popular books. Our protagonists try to make some quick money by writing a book the same way, but accidentally evolve the story into something good, become attached to it, and fight to prevent ExecutiveMeddling from ruining it.
