by | Aug 20, 2018

Real* emails from real readers…

“I don’t always publish a book about Donald Trump, but when I do, it reaches #1 on the NY Times bestseller list.” –The Rick Wilson

“I don’t always attend book signing parties featuring conservative authors, but when I do, it’s because, contrary to the book’s title, Trump is a media gold mine.” –Gary Fineout

I don’t always host book signing parties at the Midtown Reader, but when I do, a virtual who’s who of Florida politics shows up.”–Sally Bradshaw

A who’s who of Florida politics?  I have strained my eyes until they are bleeding, and I still haven’t found myself in that photo.” –Peter Schorsch

“Please let your readers know that these Trump tweets are fake, and the last one was a direct rip-off of a real 2011 tweet by Trump about Barney Frank. Also, I have the full-resolution version of the photo in question and I would never disrespect the guests of the bookstore by wearing an ill-fitting shirt.” –Paul Bradshaw

“I hate to change the subject, but I just wanted to send my condolences out to all the eligible bachelorettes in Tallahassee, because Herbie Thiele is officially off the market.” –Ron Sachs

On that note, I’d like to make it clear that while Herbie did get married this weekend, it was not to me.” –Jon Costello

“While, I too, did not get married to Herbie, I’d also like to use this opportunity to point out that none of the previous anti-establishment jokes were my ideas, and I disavow all of them.” –Drew Piers

*All real emails are highlighted in bright yellow so that even attendees of Rick Wilson’s book signing parties can recognize a winner when they see one.
