The worlds of politics and publishing are, once again, coming together in still-theoretical ways.
First up is author and activist Marianne Williamson, who as you may recall ran in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.
The Hill reports that on Saturday, Williamson announced that she'd be making ... another announcement ... on March 4.
To quote directly: "As America gears up for the 2024 presidential election, I’m preparing an important announcement on March 4th in Washington DC."
The roles are reversed on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, though.
Rather than speculating about an author entering politics, the speculation concerns a politician trying her hand at writing.
Literary agents are predicting that Nicola Sturgeon, who is resigning from a record-making tenure as Scotland's first minister, could land a six-figure advance for her memoirs.
The Guardian notes that Sturgeon has previously said she'd "almost certainly" write a memoir, though not necessarily for publication.
Still, if she does, the memoir of Scotland's first female and longest-serving first minister would be "one of the most sought after titles in coming years," according to a Scottish publisher.
