How's this for the ultimate author's fantasy?
His first book has gone right to the top of the best-seller lists,
it's been sold to publishers all over the world, and when he goes
to book-signing events people line up at dawn and wait half a

him sign their copies. And what about the signing at the Stockman
residence in Hopewell on the same day, where people paid $500
for a signed copy and $1,000 for a photograph with him? Okay,
he doesn't get to keep the big money. But it goes to a cause he
believes in named Rush Holt.
