How to Shop for a Husband.

Today Show consumer correspondent Janice Lieberman has a new book deal. Lieberman, writing with Bonnie Teller, will show how techniques used by consumer experts can help you close a deal on a mate.

St. Martin’s Press bought world rights to “How to Shop for a Husband” and plans to release the book next spring.

Lieberman is the co-author of  “Tricks of the Trade.” She wrote this consumer survival guide with producer/director Jason Raff, who at one time worked with Lieberman on consumer investigations for Today.

New opportunities for Writers.

Medallion Press is getting into the nonfiction end of the publishing biz. The small publisher has built a reputation on mainstream and genre fiction, especially romance. Medallion plans to continue to put out fiction, but will add a new imprint for publishing motivational and self-help books, along with autobiographies and memoirs.

Medallion has several nonfiction book projects in the works. One is a memoir by Dawn Schiller called “The Road Through Wonderland,” which will focus on the author’s bizarre relationship with porn star John Holmes and her struggle to get beyond her past.

 Actor Val Kilmer and actress Kate Bosworth appeared in the 2003 film “The Wonderland Murders” and will contribute to a foreword for Schiller’s book due to be released in August 2010.

A memoir by Medallion publisher, historical author, and heir to the Wrigley fortune Helen A. Rosburg is due out in November of 2010. Then in January of 2011 the release of a motivational book by personal trainer and fitness educator, Staci Boyer.
