Madeleine McCann’s parents sign book deal to raise cash to continue the search

Missing: The book will raise money to fund the search for Madeleine McCann
Madeleine McCann’s parents have signed a multi-million pound book deal to write about their daughter’s disappearance.
Kate and Gerry McCann’s emotional account about their four-year-old vanishing from a holiday apartment is an attempt to raise money to continue the search for her.
Profits from the book – which is expected to be one of next year’s best-sellers – will be donated to the family’s official fund to find Madeleine.
The book, simply entitled Madeleine, will be published on April 28 next year to coincide with the fourth anniversary of their daughter’s disappearance.
It comes as earlier this month they revealed that the dwindling fund would run out of money by early 2012.
Within weeks of Maddie being snatched from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007 money from the public poured in to boost the Find Madeleine Fund. At its height it stood at £2 million. But now there is just £300,000 left.
Precise details of the publishing deal have not been released, but a source said it included a ‘substantial’ advance and included ‘enhanced royalties’ - giving the couple a bigger share of profits from sales.
Mrs McCann, 42, said: ‘My reason for writing is simple - to give an account of the truth.
‘Publishing this book has been a very difficult decision and is one that we have taken after much deliberation and with a very heavy heart.
‘However, in the last few months, with the depletion of Madeleine’s Fund, it is a decision that has virtually been taken out of our hands.
‘Every penny we raise through its sales will be spent on our search for Madeleine. Nothing is more important to us than finding our little girl.’

Kate and Gerry McCann confirmed the book will be published to coincide with the fourth anniversary of Madeleine's disappearance next April
Mr McCann, also 42, added: ‘We are hopeful that this book may help the investigation to find Madeleine in other ways too.
‘Our hope is that it may prompt those who have relevant information - knowingly or not - to come forward and share it with our team. Somebody holds that key piece of the jigsaw.’
Transworld won the rights to publish the book - which is being written by the McCanns themselves and is currently part-complete - in the UK, the Commonwealth and Europe.
It is expected to sell thousands of copies due to the overwhelming interest since her disappearance in April 2007 and be priced at £20.
The publisher is home to best-selling authors including The Da Vinci Code writer Dan Brown, fantasy novelist Terry Pratchett and theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking.
Transworld publisher Bill Scott-Kerr said: ‘It is an enormous privilege to be publishing this book.
‘We are so pleased to be joining Kate and Gerry McCann in the Find Madeleine campaign.’
Deals for newspaper serialisations and translations of the book are now expected to be negotiated.
The McCanns, from Rothley, Leicestershire, are fighting a legal battle against former Portuguese detective Goncalo Amaral over his book alleging that Madeleine died in the apartment and that her parents faked her abduction - something they strongly deny.
The appeal court in Lisbon last month overturned an injunction obtained by the couple banning publication of Mr Amaral’s work, Maddie: The Truth Of The Lie.
But a source close to the McCanns said their decision to write their own book had nothing to do with rebutting Mr Amaral’s allegations.
‘It certainly hasn’t been prompted by him,’ the source said.
Earlier this month, Mrs McCann admitted she ‘had to face up to the fact’ that her missing daughter may never be found.
Mrs McCann also accused the Government of giving up the hunt for the child, who went missing shortly before her fourth birthday.
She said a series of ministers had shrugged off her pleas for help. ‘I don’t want to be appeased, and that’s what I feel we’re getting. We need action, I don’t need fluffy worthless words,’ she said.
The couple have written an open letter begging for political and financial help and launched an online petition to lobby the British and Portuguese governments for a formal review of the case.
Portuguese police shelved an 18-month investigation into the disappearance after clearing her parents as formal suspects, and the case has remained closed.
Madeleine was four when she vanished from her family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in the Algarve on May 3, 2007, as her parents dined with friends nearby.

Well done The Daily Mail for mentioning that the ban on Mr Amaral's book has been lifted thumbsup

This book deal must have been being discussed and in the pipeline for a while. It doesn't happen overnight. We are told they have had an advance already, which will be quite a tidy sum. So, it begs the question, why have they been asking for more money from the public and sending that letter to their "celebrity" supporters. How much money do they need ffs. It wouldn't cost them a penny to ask the Portuguese police to reopen the case, there should be no need for any money. They still have according to them £300,00 in the fund. Wonder how much this advance was, and why has it not been added to the money in the fund if they have already had it as some papers are saying.

Oh well, it's good news really because at least Snr Amaral will have something worth suing.

Madeleine McCann’s parents sign book deal


‘Maddie’ will detail their search for daughter who disappeared in 2007



    reopen Madeleine McCann disappearance case




Manuel De Almeida / EPA file Gerry and Kate McCann during a press conference after a meeting with their Portuguese lawyers in Lisbon. Concerned that the privately funded investigation into their daughter's disappearance is running out of money, the McCanns have signed a book deal.

  • of a British girl who disappeared mysteriously from a rented suite in Portugal during a family vacation in 2007 have signed a deal with a publisher to write a book about the search for little Madeleine McCann.


  1. Kate and Gerry McCann hope to dispel any doubts people may have about the disappearance of their daughter while her younger brother slept and the couple entertained friends. They plan to use proceeds from the book to replenish a fund established to pay for a private investigation into the disappearance, according to the London Daily Mail newspaper.


Titled “Maddie,” the book is expected to be released in April 2011, to coincide with the fourth anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance. The McCanns say she was snatched from the Praia da Luz in the Algarve on May 3, 2007, as they dined nearby.
AP A photo, left, and an age-progressed image, right, of Madeleine McCann, the British toddler who was 4 when she disappeared in May 2007.



Madeleine’s disappearance made headlines around the world. The McCanns’ publicity trip throughout Europe and the United States brought in millions of dollars in donations to the Find Madeleine Fund. But early this month, the family announced that the fund was dwindling and was in danger of running out of money in early 2012.



According to the newspaper, Transworld Publishers — the United Kingdom division of Random House — has agreed to pay the McCanns several million dollars to write about their emotional ordeal.

“My reason for writing is simple — to give an account of the truth,” Kate McCann, 42, told the Mail. “Publishing this book has been a very difficult decision, and is one that we have taken after much deliberation and with a very heavy heart. However, in the last few months, with the depletion of Madeleine’s Fund, it is a decision that has virtually been taken out of our hands.”

The book is expected to be an instant best-seller in Europe because of the mystery surrounding Maddie’s disappearance. Portuguese police initially suspected that her parents knew something about the little girl’s fate, but eventually closed the case and cleared Kate and Gerry McCann.

Meanwhile, the McCanns continue to fight a legal battle against a former Portuguese detective over his allegations that Madeleine died in the rented apartment while her parents were out. The book alleges they faked the abduction, a charge the McCanns have steadfastly denied.




I have highlighted in red, they are being paid several million dollars

So why on earth were they asking for more money in that open letter a couple of weeks ago, when this must have been on the cards. You don't deals like that, with bidding wars etc that quickly. I'm sorry, but just exactly how much money do they really need. To open the case would be free,

Does anyone know how these adverts are chosen? For instance the adverts (or a lot of them on forums) correspond to what is being talked about in the forums, key words are picked out and adverts pertaining to those words appear. The book title Madeleine obviously doesn't have these key words that appear - So how have these adverts appeared, is someone being naughty

Maybe it's nothing to do with 'Madeleine' but everything to do with Kate and Gerry McCann?

No wonder the McCanns have to write a book to earn enough money to pay these £500 per hour sharks lawyers.

Changed my mind. Although Amazon is a US based site - and is a minimum of 5 hrs behind us - I think the telegraph wires will be buzzing right now and so revise 0845 to 0300!

The mccanns will be livid. If they dare send their pet dog around, amazon will drop them.

Not everyone is going to kowtow to them...especially not in usa!

Just look at the anti mccanns comment in MSN? Pages after pages of it.
