    First this is not a joke. Last week my wife and I came up with an idea about writing a book about/with the fans on this board. Before I reveal the idea we want to run it by her literary agent first to see if its a viable project. I think its kind of exciting myself. As I find out more details I'll let everybody know.

    Obviously I won't be writing it. :rolleyes:

    But everyone here would be involved I can say that.

    would this be sci-fi or murder mystery?

    To piggyback on eom, is it a sci-fi about men who are assumed to be made of glass?

    I think it will fall into the comedy with a little sci-fie.
    Really I can't let out exactly what the idea is its not copy
    writed yet,and may never be. But the literary agent really likes my wifes work and our ideas. So theres
    pretty good chance will get the go ahead. I do think everyone hear will get a kick out of it.

    But it might be weeks or months before I know anymore. Shes finishing up a book now and in the literary world things move slowly. She got the deal for this one Aug or Sep. '07

    Board Members: 10,316, , lets assume 9000 of these are on Patriots Fan Forum, of these at least 8950 are patriot fans (the rest are jets,chargers,colts,.......fans) , assuming 5 percent of these 8950 are interesting/regular contributors to this forum........ that still leaves around 448 people to write about............. Its a unique idea no doubt........ are u planning on selling this book? ...........

    Sounds fascinating. No boring posters here. If I can help, let me know. Good luck!

    (I can't remember which author wrote." I love being a writer. Its just the paperwork I can't stand.")

    At the monment I'm thinking just the active members,and of course were going to try to sell the book. I doubt the publisher would have it any other way. But its not just for Pats fans, all sports fans would get a hoot out of it.

    Clearly, this is the only reasonable title for the book.

    Re: Book about the fans on this board

    would be great if you get BB to contribute a few comments on it(the book) and then add these comments to the book............... but well all my fav coach may say is
    Code:
     "this is a good book, we are concentrating on going 19-0"

    You know I hadn't thought about BB but there could be a gold mine there.
