The buzz is that Hillary Rodham Clinton’s new book will net her an advance in the range of $14 million.
The New York Post said industry speculation is that her upcoming book that publisher Simon & Schuster describes as her “key decisions and experiences as Secretary of State” will far surpass the $8 million for her most recent book — and rival her husband’s advance for his “My Life.” For that memoir, Bill Clinton received $15 million, The Post reported.
Mrs. Clinton has published four other books. But it’s this one — due for release just as the next presidential campaigns will start organizing — that has many politicos speculating that this is step one toward the White House for her. She will be embarking on a national book tour in sync with the political season, just as presidential hopefuls are strategizing and clamoring for media attention, The Post said.
