Publishers Want to Pay Big Money for James Comey's Upcoming Memoir

"It will speak to a broader desire in our country for more ethical leadership".

Comey, according to an acquisition editor for a major NY publishing house, could get $10 million for the book, the insider told DailyMail.com in June.

Comey was first appointed as Federal Bureau of Investigation director by President Barack Obama, but was kept on by the Trump administration until his sudden firing in May.

FBI Director James Comey is sworn in before testifying at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on the "Oversight of the State Department" in Washington U.S. on July 7, 2016. Among these are his investigation into Mrs Hillary Clinton's private e-mail server during last year's contentious election and his recent entanglement with Mr Trump over the FBI's probe into Russia's meddling in the election.

Bihar rift widens, Tejashwi skips event attended by Nitish
Lalu Yadav said that his son Tejashwi Yadav, who is facing corruption charges, will not resign as Bihar Deputy Chief Minister. Another senior RJD leader and former MP Shivanand Tiwari has appealed to Nitish Kumar to end the crisis.

Comey's book will likely be widely anticipated, and some have previously speculated he could receive as much as an eight-figure advance.

"His aim is to write candidly about his experiences serving in multiple administrations, and to use moments from his career to draw lessons about ethics, decision making and leadership, ' the Times" Alexandra Alter said.

I'm sure Mr. Comey believes that a book about his life will be a real page turner. The book will also undergo legal and governmental vetting to avoid disclosing classified information.

Not mentioned in the blurb about his upcoming book is what he plans to say about the Hillary email investigation.

In a capitalist society, we should celebrate people who hit the jackpot and cash in on their celebrity.

The New York Times reported Saturday that Comey, who was dramatically fired by President Trump on May 9, is pursuing a book project about his career in public service - including the tumultuous three and half months spent under Trump before getting axed.

Nearly immediately after his firing, agents and publishers pounced, setting off speculation that Mr. Comey was contemplating writing a book.
