Oprah Winfrey signed a deal with Flatiron Books, a division of Macmillan, for her memoir The Life You Want. The book will be published in January 2017. In the memoir Oprah discusses her own experiences and also gives inspirational advice to readers.
Oprah says, “All my experiences, even the painful ones, have been there to teach me something about life. I’m still learning and I hope my story inspired other people to live the highest, fullest, expression of themselves.”
In addition Oprah’s book deal includes her own publishing imprint with Macmillan. The books will be non fiction and there will be a series of books released a year. Deadline reports that Oprah’s publication line was an eight-figure deal.
The president and publisher of Flatiron Books, Bob Miller shared his thoughts on Oprah’s memoir. “A remarkable combination of Oprah’s life story and the lessons we can all draw from it for our personal growth.” We’re also thrilled to give a home to Oprah’s imprint titles. We all know how extraordinary Oprah’s instincts are when it comes to choosing books, instincts borne of her lifelong love of reading and the power of the written word.”
