$2M for Two More from LeAnn Rimes
Judy Quinn -- 10/6/97
Doubleday editor-in-chief Pat Mulcahy is apparently pleased enough with the rumored 250,000 advance orders for Holiday in Your Heart, a Christmas book just shipping now and written by young country music star LeAnn Rimes with Tom Carter, to sign up two more books. Agent Al Lowman said these books will also feature semi-autobiographical character Anna Lee, with one to be published around Mother's Day 1999 and one on Valentine's Day 2000, with holiday-appropriate plots. Like Rimes's previous book, these went for $1 million each. ABC will air a Holiday in Your Heart Christmas movie but has no option for the next books, which Lowman expects to have similar TV movie-ties, along the lines of Kenny Rogers's The Gambler series.
