Posted on 04/02/2014 9:30:01 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Sen. Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican often mentioned as a possible presidential candidate, is working on a project considered standard for national contenders: a book.
Cruz's literary agent, Keith Urbahn, said Wednesday that the tea party favorite had agreed to terms with HarperCollins. Urbahn declined to discuss the contents of the book, currently untitled and with no scheduled release date, or to confirm a report in the Washington Examiner that the deal was worth $1.5 million. But he says the number is "close."

It was our honor to vote for this brilliant man, dedicated to what the USA should be, with the vision and courage to strive for the freedom that God has given us.
Remember when Newt was slammed for making money off of books?
If you are GOP, money from books = bad, Democrat book authors get a pass.
Newt wasn’t slammed for making money from books. He was slammed for using a presidential campaign as a thinly veiled book promotion tour. Your book is supposed to promote your campaign, not the other way around.
He’d better do his due diligence regarding the proofreaders, factcheckers, and editors the publisher assigns to the book. Thanks Oldeconomybuyer.
During that fake scandal, the media left out what the second highest bid was, it was 4.1 million, that would have revealed that it was a sought after book, also the Clintons shortly went on to reach history making deals many millions higher, without controversy.

Gingrich Gives Up $4 Million Advance On His Book Deal
By PETER APPLEBOME,
Published: December 31, 1994
Responding to criticism from both Republicans and Democrats, the incoming House Speaker, Newt Gingrich of Georgia, today announced that he would forgo a $4.5 million book advance to avoid the appearance of cashing in on his party’s victory in the November elections.
He was also slammed for accepting a $4M advance on a book he penned in the aftermath of the 1994 election...he cashed in as the incoming Speaker.
Rush spent weeks defending Newt. It was legal, but I thought it was Washington business as usual, i.e. scummy. Newt finally caved, returned the advance and was compensated for royalties.
If Newt was so convinced he was right in the first place, he should have told everybody to FO.
"Public service" is one of the few growth industries left in America.
On behalf of Texas Tea Partiers, "it was our pleasure."
