Market for Perry books shrinking with poll numbers
A much-hyped wave of books on Gov. Rick Perry has shrunk to a trickle.

In light of the presidential candidate's plummeting poll numbers and cringe-inducing gaffe at Wednesday's debate, the market for Perry books appears to be closing fast with at least one planned work already shelved.

"I had a deal, and then Perry blew it," said R.G. Ratcliffe, an Austin-based writer and former Star-Telegram reporter who spent part of this year finishing a book on Perry.

Earlier this year, when Perry was a white-hot presidential prospect largely unknown to voters outside of Texas, talk surfaced of multiple books on Perry's life and record heading to bookstore shelves. By September, Politico was describing a "seller's market for Perry books" with some tomes expected to come out by the end of the year or early 2012.

Ratcliffe said his book deal with a publisher fell apart when Perry's early debate performances began to draw ridicule.

"I have a written book, but at this point in time there's not a whole lot of market for it," Ratcliffe said. "Everything's on hold for a moment."

Honestly that turd is at least giving us Texas Democrats a big laugh, at his expense of course.
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

This would have been a perfect opportunity for Molly to pen a "good hair" book.
The writers of a humorous anti-Perry book aren't waiting to see what happens next in Perry's effort to make it to the Oval Office.
