Remember that book the governor isn't writing? Amazon is taking orders

Chasing Sunshine

Gov. Rick Scott, long rumored to be writing a book, told reporters he wasn't planning on its release before November.

 "Are you writing a book?,'' the governor was asked directly after the Cabinet meeting last week.

"I'm not planning on...I'm writing a book. I'm not planning on having a book before the election,'' he replied. 

Apparently the people at Amazon.com have other ideas. The website on Tuesday began taking advance orders for a book it says will be available by April 15. The book's title is Chasing Sunshine: Remarkable People Who Found the American Dream in Florida, published by Greenleaf Book Group Press.

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 the people who are 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.
