Reif's Debut Just Blew Your Book Deal Away

From Publishers Lunch:

Reif Larsen's debut novel THE SELECTED WORKS OF T.S. SPIVET, the story of a 12-year old genius mapmaker from Montana, to Ann Godoff at Penguin Press, in a major deal, reportedly for approximately $900,000, at auction, for publication in summer 2009, by Denise Shannon at the Denise Shannon Literary Agency (US).


Sigh. I have to start working on my genius novel. I could really use $900, 000. Or, you know what? Ann Godoff - I will make you a deal. If you promise to publish my book, I promise that I will not take a penny more than $500k from you. I think that's fair, considering that you haven't read it and I haven't written it. But, I'm sure it will be good. Look at all the genius bits I write on here. I mean, how could it NOT succeed? And I already have this great platform. Oh, haven't you heard of slunch? It's immensely popular. Advertisers are clamouring to pay us, but you know, we have integrity and all. Sorry, American Apparel. You lose. (just kidding. American Apparel, if you want to give us money, it's totally cool! I'll even wear your stuff while I type. and talk about how soft your t-shirts are. call me!)

I consider, that you commit an error. I can prove it. Write to me in PM, we will communicate.

I apologise, but, in my opinion, there is other way of the decision of a question.
