AFTER “WORST PRE-SALES EVER,” PUBLISHER CANCELS SEAN SPICER MEMOIR. BRIETBART TO RELEASE “RE-WRITTEN” MANUSCRIPT AS AN INSTANT PAPERBACK
Washington (eTruePolitics) – Following historically low pre-order sales on Amazon for ‘The Briefing,’ Sean Spicer’s White House memoir, conservative publisher Regnery has cancelled the book, scheduled for release on July 24th, according to sources close to the right-wing publisher.
Vile Press, a division of Breitbart Media, quickly announced that it had made a deal with the author for a “dramatically reworked” manuscript which will be published as an ‘instant paperback.’
“Usually, with such a prestigious author publishing in hardcover first is the way to go,” said Vile publisher Steve Bannon, “but given Sean’s short shelf life as a public figure Vile thought we could make some bucks – and contribute a little something to the national political dialogue – by rushing a completely re-conceived ‘Dimwit’ into the marketplace as an instant paperback.
“At $2.99, it’s a tremendous value.”
