Amanda Knox Book Deal in the Works

by at . Comments

The Amanda Knox story is coming to bookshelves near you.

According to reports, she's signed with a powerful literary agent in D.C., Robert Barnett, who has brokered book deals for some of the biggest names imaginable. Think Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin.

Barnett taking her on means there's likely plenty of interest.

Amanda's Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, who was also convicted and then exonerated in the murder of Meredith Kercher, has signed with his own agent.

Sharlene Martin, famous for brokering deals for several New York Times bestsellers, will head the efforts to find a deal for Raffaele, who broke up with Knox recently.

Knox has kept a relatively low profile since being freed from an Italian jail, though she did step out as a cat burglar for Halloween, which drew some harsh criticism.

Kercher was murdered by a home invader after all. Not tactful, A.
