Demi Moore Reportedly Sells Memoir for $2 Million

200px-GhostA.jpgActress Demi Moore has sold her memoir to HarperCollins. According to Crain’s NY, the star of Ghost and G.I. Jane sold her book for over $2 million.

Moore is represented by agent Luke Janklow, and she has earned 2.7 million followers on Twitter. To help you speculate about the contents of Moore’s proposal, we collected some writing samples from her Twitter page.

Here’s more from the subscription-only article: “According to several publishing executives, Ms. Moore met only with those houses willing to bid at least $1 million. But to the surprise of some editors who met with her, the book she wants to write is primarily about her own mother, Virginia King, a longtime alcoholic with whom Ms. Moore had a notoriously difficult relationship.”
