Pan Mac to publish Stormy Daniels memoir

A tell-all memoir from adult film star Stormy Daniels, who is alleged to have had an affair with Donald Trump, is to be published next month by Pan Macmillan in the UK and Macmillan Group stablemate St Martin’s Press in America.

World publishing rights to Full Disclosure were acquired by St Martin's Press chairman Sally Richardson and executive editor Elizabeth Beier from Luke Janklow of Janklow & Nesbit Associates in New York.

The “funny, sharp, warm, and impassioned” book will be published simultaneously on 2nd October in the UK, Australia, South Africa and India by Pan Macmillan, in the US by SMP,  and in Germany by Droemer Knaur, and will be available in hardcover, e-book and audio formats.

“She was already well-known in some circles before March 6th 2018, but that’s probably the first time you heard the name Stormy Daniels,” the publisher said. “That’s the day she filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump over a nondisclosure agreement negotiated before the election but never signed.”

It is alleged that she slept with Trump in 2006, which the president denies. In May, Trump officially disclosed his reimbursement to his lawyer, who paid a porn star to hush up her claims of an affair. The filing shows he paid Michael Cohen between $100,001 (£75,000) and $250,000 for expenses incurred in 2016.

Daniels has since been profiled in the New York Times as “Stormy Daniels, Feminist Hero” and “Joan of Arc,” and in Rolling Stone as “the hero America needs”.

In the memoir, she shares how she came to be a leading actress and director in the adult film business, the truth about her journey from a rough childhood in Louisiana onto the national stage, and “the events that led to the nondisclosure agreement and the behind-the-scenes attempts to intimidate her”, the publisher said.

“I own my story and the choices I made,” she writes. “They may not be the ones you would have made, but I stand by them.”
