Here is another opportunity:

I wrote several months ago about an opportunity to ghost write a non-fiction work on the Station Nightclub Fire that took place in Warwick. RI.
A writer was selected for the project, but in truth things have not worked out.

To refresh your memory about the project:
"In essence, the book would be about the story of a man's roller coaster journey in faith from his Christian childhood, to a divorce which pitted himself against his father and brother, to a marriage which he thought would be the turning point in his life, to his own troubling divorce which came out of nowhere, to a loss of faith, to a survival from the Station House Fire, to an opportunistic girlfriend whom he thought would bring him stability again, to his return to faith at the strongest level that he could ever imagine!"

If you are at all interested in pursuing this opportunity, please let me know right away.
Some criteria:
- you must be willing to research and conduct interviews regarding the Station Nightclub Fire
- you must be willing to travel to Somerset to meet with Chris, the survivor and book's protagonist
- as a publisher is awaiting its completion, the book would have to be completed within 9 months
- a standard industry contract of 30% would be secured, along with a 'by-line- on the cover

Again, there's an interested publisher waiting in the wings, so get back to me as soon as possible.
Half-hour interviews will be arranged with myself and the project's manager.
