South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford's deal to write a book on fiscal conservatism has been terminated amid revelations about his affair with a woman from Argentina.

Publisher Adrian Zackheim said Thursday that Sentinel had agreed to release Sanford from his contract.

Zackheim called the agreement “a mutual decision.” Sanford's spokesman declined to comment.

Zackheim says the book titled “Within Our Means” had been scheduled for publication in March 2010. Sentinel is a dedicated conservative imprint within Penguin Group (USA) Inc.

Sanford has hunkered down but said he won't resign as top state Republicans and several newspapers call for him to step down.

State police planned Thursday to announce if Sanford broke state laws to visit his Argentine mistress.
