Former Miss California Lands Book Deal

crown.jpgFormer Miss California Carrie Prejean has landed a book deal with Regnery Publishing. Entitled “Still Standing,” the book will be released in November 2009.

The deal was sealed by Lee Hough at Alive Communications. Prejean drew criticism, praise, and Biblical comparisons earlier this year for her stance against gay marriage. She was subsequently dethroned for “contract violations.”

Here’s an excerpt from the publisher’s punchy press release: “Prejean attracted national attention when she answered a question at the Miss USA Pageant defending traditional marriage … Now she will tell her side of the story, answering such questions as what happened behind the scenes at the pageant, why she answered the Perez Hilton question as she did, what really led to her losing the Miss California crown, and how she has been forced to battle the left’s double-standard on free speech.” (Image via)
