Scotty Nguyen will write a book about his colorful life – and he wants a fan to be the author

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

“I did a tweet about wanting to do a book, and needed a writer! I had no idea I would get so many dm’s about doing it baby! Here’s the deal, I want to do a book on my life, I have held off for many years on doing it, but now I’m ready baby! This is very important to me. However I would prefer to have a fan be the writer rather than a “ghost writer”.  So, I am going to give my fans the opportunity for the job first baby! If I don’t find someone through my fans, then I will use a ghost writer, or just hold off on doing it; in which I’d probably just hold off again.

As many of you know, my life has been full of every emotion imaginable! I need someone to write in a way that brings the reader’s into the book, something you don’t want to put down, full of emotion but with the right amounts. I want you all to remember, I have only one life, and this is the life I’m telling, so I have one shot of having it told and told in the best way possible. I don’t want anyone to get upset or get your feelings hurt if I don’t chose you, I love you all baby and that’s why I want to give you all this opportunity first.

I’m going to give you all until Friday, August 13th to submit to me the following:

Email me at with the subject of “Book”, your name, your contact information, previous writing history if any, your requested pay along with I would like to have one page of sample writing by you, and I would like this to be on your life or a made up life, using emotion like what I describe above. I don’t want any writings that are not yours or not original to you baby!”

Scotty Nguyen won the WSOP main event back in 1998 and went deep in this year’s tournament ending on 209th place among 7,319 entries cashing $48,847. His book will surely be colorful, but who will be the writer?
