The New York Times recently reported that one benefit of blogging is the inevitable book deal that follows. So, it was just a matter of time before this blog's Jeremy Telman (pictured) exploited the publicity for his verse generated in this forum to sign a book contract for his Limericks for Lawyers project. Although Telman would not disclose details, he described his advance as "in line with my talent and status."
Regnery Press was apparently drawn to Telman's work due to his dutiful reporting on developments at the Press. Asked how Telman's book would fit in with the Press's reputation as a publisher of right-wing diatribes, Regnery's spokesperson explained, "He writes metrical verse; he must be conservative."
