Pen Envy

Mike Jones, the male escort who brought down New Life Church's founding pastor, the Rev. Ted Haggard, has inked a book deal with New York-based Seven Stories Press. The as-yet-untitled book will be released in June.

Officials from Seven Stories wouldn't disclose how much the book will be worth to Jones, but they said it'll likely be the publisher's most high-profile release. The company doesn't publish a lot of memoires, apparently, but does specialize in stories of "social justice."

"That's the way we see (this story)," said Ruth Weiner of Seven Stories. "In a way, Mike speaks for a lot of undocumented and voiceless sex workers."

Jones says he had a three-year sexual relationship with Haggard.

Yes, pity Mike Jones, spokesman for the undocumented and voiceless sex workers of the world.

For Seven Stories, it's all about the cash. When is it not?
