Why Booksellers Are Expecting a TV Personality’s Upcoming Memoir to Be Big

Aug 5, 2016  •  Post A Comment

The memoir of a prominent TV personality is about to be released, and for at least two reasons, booksellers are poised for the book to do big business.

“Settle for More,” from Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, comes out Nov. 15, and The Wall Street Journal reports that the book “promises the behind-the-scenes scoop on her public feud with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.”

But after developments in recent weeks involving sexual harassment allegations against Fox News boss Roger Ailes, interest in the book has been ramped up even further.

Cindy Dach, co-owner and general manager of Changing Hands Bookstore in Arizona, is quoted in the report saying: “If this book is her memoir, it will be hard not to have Roger Ailes in the book.” But the report notes that Kelly’s manuscript was due at HarperCollins Publishers in late spring, about two months before the Ailes scandal broke.

“A veteran publisher at a rival house said that, based on typical publishing timetables, there is still a window for Ms. Kelly to add new material if she chooses,” the report notes.
