(Newser) – There could soon be another tome trying to cash in on the John Edwards melodrama. Andrew Young, the Edwards aide who claimed to be the father of Rielle Hunter’s child, is shopping a tell-all book, the Daily Beast reports. Young says he feels betrayed by Edwards, who cut off all contact with him after the scandal became public.

According to the book proposal currently making the rounds, Edwards and the late Fred Baron paid Young an undisclosed sum to hide Hunter in his home for eight months. Editors think the book could fetch $1 million, but so far no one’s biting. “You don’t want to release this book the week, God forbid, Elizabeth Edwards’ cancer returns,” said one.
