Carole, who previously released her autobiographical What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love a few years back, has signed a whopping $700,000 two-book deal with Henry Holt. & Co. according to theNew York Post.
Unlike her first book, the new one will be a novel titled The Widow’s Guide to Sex & Dating.
According toCarole’s website, Widow’s Guide is about “death, sex and love, in that order” and tells the story of a woman whose sexologist husband suffers an untimely death and decrees that she must finish his work on a biography of a famous movie star. Life lessons about sex and love ensue, and judging bythe teaser image on her site, garter belts and heavy partying will be involved in the journey. Carole tweeted that it’ll hit shelves in the spring of 2013.
Book two is reportedly titled Girl’s Guide to Life, at least temporarily, and is to be a collection of essays.
Congrats to Carole!
