Gov. Rick Scott, long rumored to be writing a book, recently told reporters it won’t be available until at least November.
“Not until after the election,” Scott said a few days ago.
Apparently the people at Amazon.com have other ideas. The website Tuesday began taking advance orders for a book it says will be available by April 15.
The book title is "Chasing Sunshine: Remarkable People Who Found the American Dream in Florida," published by Greenleaf Book Group Press.
Never miss a local story.
Scott’s campaign manager, Melissa Sellers, said: “There’s basically no book going anywhere until after the election. There are a lot of other things going on.”
The blurb on Amazon.com says people profiled in the book include “George Burgess, the world’s foremost shark expert; Gladys Rubio, hurricane chaser; Tramar Dillard, best known by his rap persona, Flo Rida; and Mary Ann Carroll, one of the original Florida Highwaymen artists.”
Scott collaborated on the 205-page book with an inspirational Florida author, Heidi Tyline King.
His probable Democratic opponent, former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist, recently completed a three-week national tour promoting his book, "The Party’s Over: How the Extreme Right Hijacked the GOP and I Became a Democrat."
