Amanda Knox has agreed to a sizeable book deal with publisher Harper Collins to tell the story of her four-year ordeal in Italy.
ABC news is reporting that the publishing house is dishing out $4 million dollars for her memoir, based in part on journals she kept while imprisoned in Italy.
"For the very first time since her trial for murder, her four-year incarceration in Perugia, Italy, and her appeal and acquittal of all charges, Amanda Knox will share the truth about her terrifying ordeal," said Harper Collins in a statement.
In 2007, Knox was studying abroad in Perugia when her British roommate Meredith Kercher’s body was found with her throat slashed in their flat.
Knox was arrested by police, and endured two trials before being acquitted of the murder charges. She has returned to America, but the saga may not be over. On Tuesday, Italian prosecutors filed an appeal to overturn Knox’s acquittal.
It is unclear whether the Italian government will pursue her extradition.
Knox is also appealing her conviction for criminally defaming Patrick Lumumba, a bar owner who she accused of being the killer.
