Admittedly, it's far too early to draw any conclusions, but I wondered what
the thoughts of the community here might be regarding the following:

I have received notification of a possible long-term software documentation
job oppportunity in another city (from an author of a book I edited last
year) that pays (he says) $100 per hour or more. I will know whether I
intend to pursue that opportunity on Tuesday. At least that's the current
plan. All I know is that the author said in an e-mail that he would contact
me Tuesday afternoon.

Sounds too good to be true, right? Who pays $100 an hour for software
documentation? What is "wrong" with this picture?

I know the company's identity and am assured that it is indeed well-situated
to pay such a rate. It's also in an area of the country where there would
appear to be sufficient technical writers, so the author's contacting me
seems a bit odd, particularly because he knows me for my editing of his
multiauthor book and not for software documentation itself.

Until Tuesday, I can only wonder.
