Meghan McCain Scores “High Six Figure Deal”

mccainm.jpg24-year-old Meghan McCain, daughter of former Presidential candidate John McCain, has reportedly sold her book to Hyperion after an auction.

According to the NY Observer, several unnamed sources said the advance was in “the high six figures. “The deal was negotiated by Flip Brophy, who helms Sterling Lord Literistic and represents Meghan’s father.

Here’s more from the article: “While we haven’t quite nailed down what Ms. McCain’s book will be about–no one at Hyperion nor Ms. Brophy returned calls this afternoon–but if her recent columns for Tina Brown and Barry Diller’s Web site The Daily Beast are any indication, it will probably have something to do with the future of the Republican party, and how it must change to attract the votes of modern young people.” (Photo via Daily Beast)
