Publisher DROPS Biden Book Due To Lack Of Market Interest

We all know Biden is having a book published about him.

It was a central component of his mishandled documents case, where he was deemed too feeble to be tried.

But according to a recent report, “was having a book published” may be a more fitting way to describe the situation.

Simon & Schuster, the publishing company that was backing the book, has pulled back their commitment to publish the book, citing a “soft market” for books about Biden.

The Post Millennial reported:

Publisher Simon and Schuster has terminated its contract with Alex Thompson, Axios’ national political correspondent, for a book centered on President Joe Biden’s administration, signaling a challenging market for Biden-related literature.

The writer for Biden’s book, Alex Thompson, confirmed the report on social media.

How could such a popular political figure not have market interest in his book?

Some think that the book could use a fresh writer.

We’ll have to wait and see if the book ever gets released, or if a prolonged lack of interest keeps it from ever hitting the shelves.

The Blaze had more on Biden’s book deal:

In February 2021, Politico announced that Alex Thompson — then a reporter with Politico who has since joined Axios as “a National Political Correspondent” — had signed a contract with Simon & Schuster to pen “a comprehensive book on Biden’s presidency.” The book was expected to provide “fresh reporting” from a journalist with a firsthand look at “the White House transition.”

In that announcement, Politico claimed that the book would likely be released “in early 2024” — just in time for campaign season.

Now that “early 2024” has come and nearly gone, Politico has announced that the deal is off. According to the outlet, Simon & Schuster has “withdrawn” the contract with Thompson, further signaling a “soft market for books about President Joe Biden.” A spokesperson for the publisher declined Politico’s request for comment.

Thompson confirmed on X that the deal with Simon & Schuster is now defunct but noted that he is “still writing” the promised book. “If you’re a publisher and interested, email/number in bio,” he added.
