Pippa 'set to sign book deal' for guide to being perfect party hostess

By Mail On Sunday Reporter

Party tips: Pippa Middleton is said to have been offered a deal to pen a book on how to be the perfect party hostess

Pippa Middleton is said to be close to signing a book deal on how to be the perfect party hostess.

The 28-year-old became a global celebrity after her sister Kate married Prince William and now it appears she is in talks with literary agent David Godwin about a book, which would be certain to become a lucrative bestseller.

When The Mail on Sunday contacted Mr Godwin, 63, at his home in St Albans, Hertfordshire, last night he said: 'It's a private matter and I really can't comment.'

It is reported Pippa has had two meetings with publishing executives at HarperCollins and has also had discussions with other publishing houses.

Advisers to Pippa believe it could become an international success, and predict it might make more than £1 million from royalties and spin-off projects.

The book, as yet untitled, is believed to include tips on etiquette, what food to serve at a party and how to decorate a room.

It will feature a section on children's parties, inspired by the blog edited by Pippa, The Party Times – part of her parents' mailorder service, Party Pieces.

The sisters' parents, Carole and Michael, were widely criticised for appearing to promote their party business on the back of the Royal Wedding earlier this year.

Pippa's advisers will also be careful to avoid the pitfalls of Paul Burrell, Princess Diana's former butler, whose book on hosting parties, Entertaining With Style, was published in 1999.

Pippa and Kate's parents Carole and Michael have previously faced criticism for using the royal wedding to help back their party business

Pippa's book is expected to have a casual tone similar to her blog. In one entry, she writes: 'The key to creating a wonderful party lies not in spending vast amounts but in planning – from choice of venue, entertainer and party theme to the selection of food, decorations and the birthday cake.'

t is thought the book could be published just before Christmas 2012.
