My First Book Deal
Two people arrived from Penguin Putnam to give me a book deal. They wanted me to write a book about (1) America’s invasion of Iraq, (2) my belief about women in the church, and (3) the homosexual movement in Catholicism. They think it will be a bestseller.
I told them that I didn’t feel comfortable writing about such controversial issues. Instead, I told them that I have already begun writing a book about weight loss. I’m calling it ”The Vatican Diet.” It shows the importance of drinking red wine on a daily basis, eating plenty of vegetables, and staying on a low-carb, high-protein diet. I even allow people to “cheat” on their diets once a week by eating vending machine food.
I think people will love it.
