Presidential candidates are picking up a few extra bucks with book deals. Hillary Clinton comes out ahead with an $8 million deal for “Living History.” Barack Obama has earned almost half a million for “The Audacity of Hope.” John Edwards got a half million dollar advance for “Home.” Even Dennis Kucinich earned $1700 for his 2004 book “A Prayer for America.”

John McCain leads the Republicans with book income of $335,000 in the last two years. Mike Huckabee and Rudy Guiliani each made almost $150,000 from their books.

Democratic candidate Dr. Carl Perrin has authored several books. In addition to some textbooks, he wrote “So You Want To Be A Writer,” a book for aspiring authors. That book is available through Amazon.com.

He also wrote “RFD 1, Grangely,” a collection of humorous stories about Maine. “RFD 1, Grangely” is out of print, but a few copies are still available directly from the author. Just email Perrin at grammaticus1@gmail.com

If any publishers want to offer Perrin a nice advance, you can reach him through the gmail address as well.
