Raffaele Sollecito Signs with Martin Literary Management

Raffaele Sollecito, Amanda Knox‘s Italian boyfriend, has signed on with Seattle-based literary agency Martin Literary Management.

Like Knox, Sollecito was charged with the 2007 death of Meredith Kercher in Perguia, Italy, but the conviction was overturned earlier this year. Literary agent Sharlene Martin told GalleyCat, “I have consistently believed in the innocence of Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox and it seemed to me from the beginning that it made no sense to think that these two were guilty of the tragic murder of Meredith Kercher.”

Martin is currently interviewing writers to work with Sollecito on his memoir. While Martin would not tell us which publishers she is talking to, she did say that her deal with Sollecito includes foreign rights too. “I believe this has potential to sell in many foreign language territories,” she said. “My wonderful foreign co-agent, Taryn Fagerness, will handle the foreign sales on behalf of MLM.”

What about Amanda Knox’s book? Well if there is one, Martin is not currently working on it. She said,  ”At this time I’m focused on my client, Raffaele, and haven’t had any conversations with Amanda Knox personally.” (Via Seattle Post Intelligencer).
