From the New York site: Billionaire Blackstone Group chairman and CEO Stephen Schwarzman is looking to add another gig to his CV: ink-stained wretch.

The private equity executive is writing a book, and reportedly seeking a publisher, the New York reported.

“It’s not exactly a memoire,” the source told the Post. Rather, Schwarzman has been “talking about publishing a business book.”

The source said Schwarzman, whose net worth was estimated at $10.5 billion by Forbes this week, is “shopping it to publishers,” though the Post reports that the work is actually still in its early stages.
