Kate's new book- to debut in Spring!

Post by aiyoyo on 12.02.12 5:39

MCCANN'S NEW BOOK

Kate McCann is working on an updated paperback version of her best-seller, Madeleine

Sunday February 12,2012

By Sunday Express reporter

KATE McCann is working on an updated paperback version of her best-selling hardback book, Madeleine, writes Tracey Kandohla.

It is thought the new book, set to be published in the spring, will include details about the Scotland Yard review of her daughter’s kidnapping.

It will be published shortly before the fifth anniversary of three-year-old Madeleine’s disappearance in Portugal on May 3, 2007. The hardback raised £2million for the Madeleine Fund. More than 280,000 sold in Britain. Thousands more have been sold around the world in countries such as Australia, Spain and Portugal.

Kate hopes the paperback will be a hit with British holidaymakers over the summer. Kate, 43, a doctor, said: “Somebody holds that key piece of the jigsaw. I am hopeful that this book may help the investigation. It might prompt someone who has relevant information, maybe without even knowing it, to come forward.”

Her publisher Alison Barrow, from Transworld said: “Kate’s first book was a phenomenal success. It achieved astounding sales, especially for a first-time author, and it was the number one book in Britain for weeks.

“We just hope Kate’s original book and her new book bring her one step closer to finding her daughter.”

The 384-page hardback, was launched on Madeleine’s eighth birthday on May 12 last year.

Would it be libellous to say it's a mystery what materials could she have for her 2nd book that will captivate readership?
Leveson Inquiry? Yard's Review? Metodo 3's 8 new significant leads that neither mccanns nor their detectives follow up? What else?

They must be desperate for money anticipating a cyclone is heading their way.

I also wonder would it be libellous to say it's a [i]mystery why they need so much money for their "fighting fund".
Who are they fighting now that the MET police is reviewing their case?

Surely she cannot know anything about the SY review. It would be seen as detrimental to the investigation to publish anything about that at all.
I think Transworld knows the paperback is going to bomb unless they have some tittilating publicity. So it's not a new - 2nd book - just a revised version which will be interesting to compare with the original. Will page 129 still be there? Will there be more information on her sex life? The lack of beverages when interviewed by the PJ? A sudden dream in which the first name of the abductor is revealed?

The fund is surely in the doldrums, they never needed a 'Fighting Fund' - I'm sure that appealed so much to the British public, standing up for the underdog, the poor parents. Psychological marketing at its best. So not an original idea of the McCanns then. Whoever their marketing/advertising guru was, he was the only one in the team who got everything right.

Maybe she'll take us by surprise and actually write the truth rather than just 'an account of the truth' this time! Mr

You took the words out of my mouth Uppatoffee and, as I type this, the noise of oinking and grunting outside is deafening. I'd better clarify that I mean flying pigs rather than anything my neighbours are getting up to.

In the updated version she could print her answers to the 48 questions she wouldn't answer when an arguido.

She could also include photos of Madeleine on that holiday - recent photos might help to find her daughter!

After nearly 5 years Pauline, genuine photos from the holiday (if that's not a contradiction in terms) aren't going to help much in identifying Madeleine now!

After reading the comments on the blogs about all the discrepancies, KM totally revises the book to make the story fit the facts. It's what they've always done - why change now? At the speed she can think, their story should have completely changed by books 4 or 5. The film follows ready for the tenth anniversary.

thumbsup Although, T4two, in five years time the public will no longer be interested. Judging from the comments under recent articles, most people are already fed up to the back teeth with this saga.

All this started in 2007 - I think that was the beginning of the end for the financial boom. Surely that background must have been part of the whole affair? I know the Lehman brothers didn't go bankrupt until 2008, but surely the cracks must have been showing long before? Northern Rock for one in sept. 2007.
The backdrop against which all this has been played out over five years (unremitting financial crises) must surely be a factor?

And a film, please never!!! Who would play the handsome pair? Fugitives from East Enders?

Updated version? What does that mean?

Can one update on the truth? I thought her last book was based on an account of the truth!

Oh, you mean even after she has given the factual accounts she can still update on them, as in add and revise as and when she feels up to it?

At this rate, are people going to get the truth, nothing but the truth, and not just updates from time to time when she feels she needs more dough for the upcoming various litigations?
This is a mother claiming to be searching for her and she seems to have time on her hands updating her last book? Priority's all wrong.

Christ on a bike, is she ever going to stop profiting on the back of her daughter's name? And these are the parents whom the AG said they didn't do themselves any favour to clear their names when they refused to do the reconstruction. They were suspects in their daughter "mystery" disappearance who refused to answer simple questions, fled home as soon as they were arguidoed, used PR to spin, sue papers and people when they could have made simplier for people to believe their tale by clearing the clouds over their head by proactive and active cooperation with the investigators.

No, this lying pair wheel out their PR and lawyers on public donated money and then wonder why people do not believe them.

They should clear their name in court or ask for the investigation to be reopened if they want their smelly reputation cleared instead of spinning, suing ,and coming up with a series of books to preserve their interest. Where is Maddie in all these? Whatever happened to their search - is she going to give people a comprehensive account of the progress of the search in this installment of her updates?

CR came up with 153 breaches against TB.
Judge Deed Tugendhat threw out 143 of them.
CR insisted on upholding at least.

To have prepared 153 breaches, a team of one barrister, three solicitors and two assistants, (and typists et al) closely following TB on the internet and elsewhere, can conservatively be estimated to have spent 153 times 6 hours at an average rate somewhere between 250-550 per hour, exclusive of VAT. Let's say: 400 per hour. In my books, the TB case alone will have set them back around 367.200 alone till date. And it is only getting started!

The SY review will have to be paid from the Search Ltd, won't it?

So, that leaves them with no money but for GMs wages and KMs nett profits from the book.

And legal bills continuing to come in, indefinitely, for both GA and TB are fully determined to go to the European Supreme Court in Strassbourg if needs be.

A daunting prospect indeed.

Oh, BTW, you left out Pat Brown. Dont forget to add this onto their legal bills yet to be incurred, and paid.

I tend to agree with you tigger, but after almost 5 years of these two - nothing more can surprise me - they have given a whole new meaning to the term "brass neck".

A film!!! surely they wouldn't, would they?

Having horrible thoughts about some Hollywood big budget with a few actions scenes thrown in. Films are notorious for only being loosely based on fact.

I'm not sure if I'm spelling this right, but it's known as 'chutzpah'. This jiddish word is defined best as a man who is in court for having killed both his parents and throws himself on the mercy of the court because he's an orphan......

Yes, chutzpah. It means brazen-ness, cheek. You would say, 'what a nerve! I do not know how they have the chutzpah to do that!' You can say in English, to give someone an inch, and they will take a mile. Chutzpah is a very good word to describe this pair.

There should be only one story to be told, but kate keeps adding to it. So which version is film-maker supposed to use?
God forbids - surely her non-fiction isn't going to be sequel after sequel - it's not fictional Harry potter after all?
Ye...Lord..what's kate up to? How many versions have she got up her sleeves?

now where did the Sunday express reporter get that £2million figure - probably made it up.

The Fund accs to march 2011 did not show the initial (and presumably substantial) advance Kate would have got on signing the book contract in Oct 2010. Am I allowed to say it is a 'mystery' where the advance is, or is that libellous?

Could the cheque from the publishers to kate be 'in the post'?

Why do you assume the nett profits from KMs book will be donated to Fund Ltd?
Did KM say she would do so?
Why would she do that, hand over her private income to the Ltd?

Kate's New Book -to debute in Spring.

Post by sijm on 12.02.12 17:16

Am I missing something here, everyone is talking about Kate's new book being debut in spring, what if they find proof that Madeleine is most likely dead by then before then.

I beleive the book title includes ON-GOING SEARCH! Do they know already that this case will be an ongoing search next May, the gravy train to go on and on like the Jonbennet case, creating jobs and cash funds for the IT,TV and psychics industry.

Please everyone don' give up on finding Madeleine, there is plenty of evidence the investigation could bring about, althought it would be obvious to one and all that there would not be much left of her remains her cloths would'nt have deteriorate that fast, they rot yes, but DNA can still be gathered from them and whatever receptacle she was placed in (if she was)would have DNA on it to prove it was Madeleine.

Madleine has been a used little child in one way or another since her dissappearance, made an icon for all those missing, abused kid and I beleieve she will lead us to her, if she has not done so already.

Unfortunately I fear those who are investigating shall never be able to nail the perp unless there is a massive awakening of conscience or someone wants to earn mega bucks and take heed, the need for money is a disease and he/she who knows or any evidence on the fate of Madeleine will have an accomplice, but, can he/she trust them for the rest of thier lives for there is a vast fortune to be made by telling all. its like a ticking bomb

Ya, I think the reporter plucked the figure out of thin air, unless the figure was supplied by mccanns' source.

280,000 copies reportedly sold - assuming each average 10/book then that would be 2.8M.
So where did the 2M profit comes from. Even if there's 2M profit in it, surely the bulk of it goes to the publisher.
Unless they've had an advance from Transworld plus serialisation with the Sun total up to 2M.
If that being the case, then they made more profit on the back of Maddie's name than Amaral, yet they've the cheeks to criticise him who reportedly made only a fraction compared to them. If profiting from book is a sin, then the mccanns should look into the mirror before they passed judgement.

The poster who said not a penny will go towards the search is correct 'cause the bulk of their collected fund goes to legal bills.

So how can the spokesperson of Transworld term kate's first book as a phenomenal success is a great mystery - if it is a success, where is Maddie - has Maddie been found?
Since according to kate, her book is to engage the public in the search!
If profit is the determinant of success, at the end of day its about Money than Maddie. What a bloody joke!
