First of the quickie books

John Connolly, the author of the Premiere magazine profile on Schwarzenegger, can't sell his expose book, but humorist Andy Borowitz (or actually his agent Mort Janklow) has sold Governor Arnold: A Photodiary of Schwarzenegger's First 100 Days In Office to Simon and Schuster for publication in January. It's billed as "a collection of photographs and captions."

Publisher's Lunch also reports the upcoming Writer's Guide for Editors for Hire, a directory of freelance editors, book "doctors" and ghostwriters by Elizabeth Lyon.
