JK Rowling helped Kate and Gerry McCann to secure their book deal
Sunday November 21,2010
JK Rowling helped Kate and Gerry McCann to secure their book deal, the Sunday Express can reveal.
The multi-millionaire Harry Potter writer suggested they use her literary agent Christopher Little who arranged a publishing deal with Transworld.
JK Rowling has been giving the McCanns support since their daughter disappeared in Portugal in May 2007 aged three.
The author contributed to a reward for finding Madeleine and in July 2007 she arranged for posters of Madeleine to be made available to book retailers around the world .
Kate has already written 60,000 words, covering the period up to the couple’s heart-rending decision to return to Britain.
The book, titled Madeleine, will be published on April 28 next year to mark the fourth anniversary of her disappearance. Profits will go directly to the fund for finding Madeleine. GP Kate, 42, said: “My main reason for writing is simple – to give an account of the truth.”
