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.

Book Deal for SC Governor Mark Sanford’s Wife

Earlier this year, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford (pictured) lost his book deal when he admitted to an affair with an Argentinian woman. Now, his wife has landed her own book deal.

According to the NY Times, Random House’s Ballantine imprint will publish Jenny Sanford‘s untitled memoir in May 2010. The book “will grapple with the universal issue of maintaining integrity and a sense of self during life’s difficult times,” the publisher explained. No financial details about the deal have been released.

Here’s more from Sanford’s wife, from the article: “I would like to show others how important it is to stand firm on one’s principles, stay true to oneself, and respond with grace and honesty to whatever hurdles may come.”
