Loretta Sanchez Memoir is a Dud, Selling For a Penny

Perhaps Sanchez should have used a different book cover
A newspaper reported this week that the 2008 published memoir written by Orange County Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez and her sister has earned them "nothing."

Ouch.

According to the Washington, D.C.-based Roll Call, Linda Sanchez--Loretta's sister who also is a member of Congress--indirectly revealed the poor book sales in a mandatory financial disclosure report.

The Sanchez sisters, both California Democrats, were hoping to collect a 7.5 percent royalty after the first $35,000 in sales for Dream in Color: How the Sanchez Sisters Are Making History in Congress.

But the paper also noted that Amazon is now selling the book for $1.65 and that "used copies are available" for a penny.

Though the pair is the first sister-sister duo to serve simultaneously in Congress, they should have written a suspense novel involving a "hunky symbologist" and a "secret Catholic sect" rather than a book on their thoughts about life and politics, teased one of Roll Call's columnists.

Even being a major celebrity doesn't guarantee that your life has anything to say to people. A fourth-stringer, like Sanchez, I would expect to be a non-starter from the gate.

Loretta Who?

Come on, man, Get your facts straight. She tried out for the fourth-string, but ended up on the practice squad. Next yeat, everyone will have two words for her. "Water." "Towel."

Not likely, Dan.  China Attacks sold over 10,000 copies in Chinese in Hong Kong and Taiwan alone. I still sell 20-30 a month on Amazon some 11 years after publication.
