Jenny Sanford Reveals Writing Process on Good Morning America

stayingtruecover.pngOn Good Morning America today, Jenny Sanford revealed she’d shown her husband drafts of memoir passages while writing her new book.

Sanford, you may recall, is the estranged wife of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. The memoir explores her husband’s highly publicized affair with an Argentinian woman. Last week The Daily News ran exclusive excerpts from Sanford’s memoir, “Staying True.”

Here’s an excerpt: “Sanford told Good Morning America that the governor has not yet read her new book, but that she showed him drafts of various passages as she wrote it. ‘I think generally he’s OK with it,’ she said.”

Political celebrities are hot in the publishing industry, following the blockbuster success of Game Change and Going Rogue.
