I turned down two book deals, from the most unlikely of publishers, in that I do not want to do such a deal right now. I’m writing like crazy anyway, however, and when the time comes, you’ll see the book of all books. Actually, I’ve been working on a much more important project right now!

from the comments:

- He doesn’t have to work like crazy. The crazy just comes naturally.

- “If I did it: Confessions of a serial colluder”

- Mein Coveffe

- It's gonna be all Chapter 11

- "My affair with Stormy Daniels" Donald J Trump. A short story.

- “People are saying my book will win the Pulitzer Prize…and a Nobel, too!”

- Not only that, but he's getting a KKK lifetime achievement award.

- Melania will announce it at her immigration press conference.

- Here's how this is going to go:

Trump hires someone to write his book which he claims is his own.

It has meh to good sales, but Trump will claim it's sold almost as much as the bible, not quite as much as the bible, but pretty close. It might even have sold more, some people are saying. Not trump, of course, but some people.

Pundits very obviously point out that the book is written at an education level 10-15 grades above trump's speaking level.

Being a thin-skinned moron, he will do everything in his power to amplify the obviousness of his incompetence with excessive use of superlatives, then claim "fake news".

Someone with inside knowledge will confirm what everyone already knows, perhaps even going so far as to name the ghostwriter.


After a passel of "Trump is Fuming" "Trump Furious!" "Trump Rages at Inner Circle" stories, he will find some other novel way to push his utter Peter-principle mediocrity into our faces.

Alternatively, nothing gets published, but he points to something unrelated, claims it was his "book" and that the media is trying to discredit him by intentionally misunderstanding what he promised.
