Serena Williams Is Reportedly Writing A New Memoir And The Payday Is Very Nice!
Back in 2010, tennis legend Serena Williams released a memoir titled, My Life: Queen of the Court. The book was a success, but now that Serena is even more famous, publishers want her to release a second memoir, especially after the renewed interest in her family following the release of King Richard.
According to the insiders, the 41-year-old tennis star is shopping a memoir and the offers are believed to be around $10 million.
A publishing insider says that the book world is buzzing that Williams is ‘selling a memoir via [power literary agent] Suzanne Gluck at WME’ and speculates that there are ‘eight-figure deals on the table.’
Another source claims the deal may have already closed, but no official announcement has been made. We’re told the original plan was to release a series of books, but we don’t know if that’s still on the table.
In addition to this upcoming memoir, Serena also recently launched a multimedia production company called 926 Productions, and it already has a first-look TV deal with Amazon Studios.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the company has numerous projects in development — including a soccer documentary, called ‘Copa ’71,’ about the 1971 unofficial Women’s World Cup.
Safe to say, Serena is staying busy off the court. It certainly doesn’t feel like retirement. And she’s a mother and a wife, so you know she has a full plate in front of her at all times.
But that’s how she thrives. She’s been working her butt off for decades now. That’s why she’s worth over $250 million.
