Assange Signes $1.5 million book deal
I guess posting private information does pay off.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has won a $1.5 million book deal, and is expected to deliver the manuscript as early as March, 2011.
In an interview with Britain’s Sunday Times, Assange said he did not want to write the book but had to in order to cover his legal costs and finance the running of his controversial website.
According to media reports on Sunday, American publisher Alfred A. Knopf and British publisher Canongate are expected to pay a total of $1.3 million for the autobiography.
Assange is expected to earn additional money from other markets and serialization deals.
