(Newser) – Jenny Sanford will write an “inspirational memoir” to be released by Random House next spring, CNN reports. The publisher is mum on how much the estranged wife of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford will get for her trouble. The fairer half of the couple has been fairly tight-lipped since the news of her husband’s affair broke in June. The deal marks a revival of the Sanfords' literary fortunes: the governor had an agreement with Sentinel Publishing that was axed in July.
