Harlequin Signs Nicole Lapin For ‘Rich Bitch’

nicolelapinHarlequin has signed a six-figure deal to publish a new book from TV personality Nicole Lapin called Rich Bitch.

In the book, Lapin will dispense financial advice. ”If you want to take control of your life and your finances – if you want to be a rich bitch – first you have to understand money,” she said in the press release.”Don’t freak out! It’s not as hard, scary, or confusing as you think. Money is just a language and I’m going to be your Rosetta Stone so you can join the conversation.  That’s the only way to get it together and get it all.”

Steve Troha of Folio Literary Management sold the North American rights to the book to Rebecca Hunt at Harlequin Nonfiction. The title is slated for release in early 2015.
