Kate McCann Diaries Could Go For £1million: What Price The Maddy Catty

by | 14th, September 2007

SOME speculation in the Daily Mail:

Kate McCann could expect to receive a seven-figure sum for her Madeleine diaries, were she to sell the rights to a publishing house.

The diaries – which Kate has been keeping ever since Madeleine went missing – are in the hands of the Portuguese prosecutors and could prove crucial evidence for any case brought against the McCanns.

No publishing house has yet come forward to offer a sum of money but, were Kate McCann to express an interest in a deal, the move would be highly lucrative.

“There is no doubt Kate McCann’s diaries would be of huge interest to any publisher should she think about releasing them,” says Neil Denny, editor-in-chief of The Bookseller magazine, “but I haven’t heard of anything yet, not even from the ambulance-chasing publishers”.

Of course, they could fetch £2million. £10million. Or nothing. Kate McCann may not sell them. Or she may.

Says Denny: “So, if written well, and Kate McCann is an articulate woman, it could fetch a significant sum, although I wouldn’t want to put a figure on it.”

As he says, no advances have been made. He says that would be – get this –  “insensitive”.
