I just threw up in my mouth a little
Do they buy books in "Real America"?
Yes they do. Enough to put them on the bestseller list anyway. Then, oddly enough, a few months later you can pick up copies for pennies or less...
Dear god. I'd hate to be editor or proofer on that manuscript. Also.
I'd love to be, imagine what will not make the grade for publishing.
Ghostwriter for sure.
Meh. I got four words for you. "It Takes A Village". It'll just be interesting to see if her writing "partner" gets thrown under the bus when it comes to credit.
Joe the Ghostwriter
You stole my line! Where are my royalties?!?!?!
In all seriousness, how many times do you think the words "doggone" and "betcha" will appear?
It would be great is she could learn how to use the words 'also' and 'too' appropriately before writing this.
What are the odds that she'll put a blurb in there saying "For those of you still playing the drinking game, Maverick!"?
Is it "Vice Presidency For Dummies"?
7 million bucks? who knew the pop-up book market was so healthy?
at this point im almost entirely sure its only the media that are keeping her name alive.
No one gives a damn about that failure of a woman.
Good for her.
Question is: Can she read her own book?
Or can the target market for that matter *zing*
Oh boy, another pointless ego-boosting, painfully-written autobiography from a politician. There are few genres more arduous and empty than the celebrity autobiography.
And, while truly interesting and well-written books are pushed into the corner, we get the rope-a-dope monologues of a few ego-maniacs.
There are exceptions, "Faith of My Fathers" and Obama's books were decent, but there's always the terror of Joe Biden's "Promises To Keep" or "Stori Telling" by Tori Spelling. Ugh.
I hate celebrity autobiographies.
This is actually quite clever and made me chuckle (won't read it though).
How do you wink in prose?
Hey now, I have a Stephen King pop-up book.
That must have sold tens of copies!
i'm writing my own palin book...
i find hard to believe it would sell hundred of thousands of copies, as most people would find out the interesting tidbits on the internet and be done, but then again the fundamentalist base is large enough to likely make it worth.
imagine how great it would be to find it under the Christmas tree! ;¬)
semi-OT, but doesn't alaska law forbid the governor to make money on the side? would she resign 'just' for this? i bet she really hopes Stevens wins and is kicked out...
A book of PHAIL™ worth $7M?
Proposed title: So You Married a Secessionist...
I wonder if there will be:
a) A centerfold spread;
b) Moose-veal recipes;
c) A coupon for a CarHartt catalog
Go read: The Moon's a Balloon by David Niven. Really funny, eye-opening and extremely self-deprecating. A classic.
"The book that keeps on re-gifting."
