Pippa Middleton Land a $620K+ Book Deal

Pippa Middleton, younger sister to the Duchess of Cambridge, has reportedly signed a £400,000 ($620,360.00) book deal with Penguin UK imprint, Michael Joseph.

According to The Telegraph, Middleton will be writing a nonfiction tome on how to host the perfect party. The not-yet-titled book will contain party ideas, stories and recipes. Middleton’s resume includes a past job in events management at Table Talk, a London-based party planning company. She currently works as an editor for an online party magazine called Party Times.

Here’s more from the article: “Ms Middleton will wait for the launch of her first book until after the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations next summer so that she is not seen to be cashing in on her royal connections. She is keen for the book to be released next year but is determined that she is not seen to be making money from her closeness to the royal family. Therefore the book is likely to be launched late next autumn, after the summer celebrations around the Queen’s Jubilee but in time for the Christmas market.”
