    Save your money for the tell-all: Pippa Middleton has signed a book deal worth more than $600,000 to write a guide to party planning. Penguin imprint Michael Joseph will publish the book, which will include recipes, anecdotes, and instructions for different types of events. It will not be released until next autumn. According to The Telegraph, Middleton is waiting to publish the book so it does not appear she is cashing in on royal connections when the queen throws her Diamond Jubilee celebration next summer.
