Pilot Scores $3.2 Million Book Deal

As reported by GalleyCat, Captain Chesley Sullenberger now has a $3.2 million two-book deal with HarperCollins' William Morrow imprint. The book will be "a memoir that climaxes with his miraculous airplane landing and a book of 'inspirational poems.'" I'm skeptical about the "inspirational poems" part of this endeavor.

I just saw this on GalleyCat and said pretty much the exact same thing to one of my coworkers. I sure hope the publishers have seen some of these inspirational poems, so they know what they're paying for....but then again, I'm sure people will buy the books just because of who the author is. It will be interesting to follow, no doubt.
