SOURCES: CLARKE 'TO EARN OVER $1 MILLION FOR BOOK'; CONTRACT: BONUSES ADDED
Former counterterrorism chief Richard Clarke is on track to earn over $1 million in cash advance and royalties for his controversial book AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, publishing sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.
"Mr. Clarke's six-figure advance will soon turn into a seven-figure compensation, if sales continue at this pace," a top source at Clarke's imprint SIMON & SCHUSTER reveals.
"Astonishingly, we are already approaching a point where the advance paid to Mr. Clarke is covered."
AGAINST ALL ENEMIES sold more than 140,000 units in its first week, a second publishing insider claims.
Publicly, SIMON & SCHUSTER has refused to reveal specifics of its contract with Clarke, citing business privilege.
But an insider explains how the contract called for bonuses to be paid to Clarke for "hitting The [NYT bestsellers] List" in its debut, a contact clause common in publishing.
"There are bonuses for each week the book remains on the charts," the source, who demanded anonymity, explains.
