Oh, this ought to be good: According to the deal database at Publishers Lunch, Lynne Spears has signed up with Thomas Nelson for a memoir about “raising high-profile children” (Britney and Jamie-Lynn Spears) “while coming from a low-profile Louisiana community.” Can’t wait to see how Britney’s tabloid biography meshes with the book’s necessary religious message (this is Nelson we’re talking about, after all); I mean, this material’s much more, well, tabloid-y than even It’s All About Him, Nelson’s big summer bestseller from country singer Alan Jackson’s wife, Denise. And somehow “I tried to do right raising my kids, and this is what happened” doesn’t seem like a Nelson book (although any number of secular publishers would’ve snapped that version up, I’m sure).
