Mark Halperin Inks Undecided Book Deal

halperin_070907.jpgABC News and Time editor-at-large Mark Halperin just scored a new book deal with Harper Collins. His The Undecided Voter’s Guide to the Next President is slated for a fall 2007 release. The book “will examine the candidates’ biographies, policies, political skills and presidential prospects.”

Carrie Kania, SVP, publisher of Harper Perennial, is apparently excited: “Mark Halperin’s expertise about politics and the 2008 candidates will make this a must-read book for anyone who cares about the future leader of our country.”

Halperin’s last book was The Way to Win: Taking the White House in 2008, which was released last year by Random House. Needless to say, the time spent on the presidential trail has been very profitable for Mr. Halperin. Incidentally, ABC News’ web site still lists Halperin (who our sibling FishbowlDC interviewed a few months back) as their Political Director. However, he left that position more than three months ago; David Chalian is the network’s current PD.
