I don’t know why, but I seem to like posting the crazy email demands I get. For instance, this one lady wants a book written based on her true story, and asks “Dear David, I was wondering, do I have to come up with the cash up front? Or will the writer take a commission?”, followed by a long explanation of her story.
When I explain that “We typically ask for the payment to be broken into thirds, but we can break it down into smaller increments. The only thing we are not flexible on is that any work the writer does has been paid for.” …she comes back with:“All I know is my story is going to make MILLIONS and IM wikking yo dhare it all, just to get my story out! Got it?”
Ready for my response?
