So some of you folks might remember that I’m a member of The Bureau Chiefs, that gaggle of bloggers, professors, and rapper-lawyers responsible for Fake AP Stylebook, the popular and hopefully humorous Twitter feed. And some of you may also recall that, as a result of that feed, we got a book deal.
Well, now I am finally allowed to announce that the book, titled Write More Good, will be out in April 2011 from Three Rivers Press. And it’s not just a transcript of jokes from the Twitter feed, though a few of those are there — the majority of the book is all new material. Plus, the foreword to the book is by legendary film critic (and Fake AP Stylebook fan) Roger Ebert, which I think is pretty darn cool.
The book is not yet available for preorder from the usual places, but I’ll let you know when it is.
By the way, speaking of the Twitter feed, it just hit its one year anniversary, so we’re having a contest, sponsored by Zazzle (which is also offering 10% off anything from our Zazzle store through the end of November if you use the super-secret code FAKEAPZAZZLE during your purchase).
Please excuse the commercial interruption, pals, but I’m pretty excited about all this and I’ve been dying to share it with you. (Also, I came up with the title for the book, which the Bureau Chiefs gang and the publisher all liked, so I’m pretty proud of that, too!)
