Based on the “meteoric sales” of his latest book, Henry Holt and Company has inked a two-book deal with Fox New anchor Bill O’Reilly. According to the publisher, O’Reilly (pictured, via) has sold 950,000 copies of his most recent book, Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever.
Here’s more about the deal: “Holt now owns the next three books by O’Reilly including Bolder and Fresher: The Factor Years, his next memoir, which Holt signed in the spring. Of the two new books, one will be another presidential history. Publication dates are yet to be announced.”
Eric Simonoff at William Morris Endeavor negotiated the deal with Holt publisher Stephen Rubin. Holt editor-in-chief and Killing Lincoln editor Gillian Blake will handle all three books. Rubin added in the release: “The fantastic sales velocity of ‘Killing Lincoln’ is every publisher’s dream,”
