BOSTON (AP) - Financial disclosure reports show U.S. Sen. Scott Brown received a $700,000 book advance from publishers HarperCollins following his surprise win in Massachusetts.

While it was his stunning victory in a state better known for electing liberal Democrats that made Brown a hero in GOP circles, it was his revelations about his sexual abuse as a child that helped spike interest in his memoir “Against All Odds.”

The Republican won the January 2010 special election to fill the seat left vacant by the death of longtime Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy. Two months after Brown defeated Democrat Martha Coakley, HarperCollins announced its book deal with Brown.

As a U.S. senator, Brown earns a base pay of $174,000.
