Will we ever get rid of this two?

The Blaze reported that the former First couple signed with Penguin Random House, which has published three other books by the former president. Though the exact financial amount has not been disclosed, it was reportedly over $65 million.

“We are absolutely thrilled to continue our publishing partnership with the president and Mrs. Obama,” Penguin Random House CEO Markus Dohle said in a statement. “With their words and their leadership, they changed the world.”

“Now,” he continued, “we are very much looking forward to working together with President and Mrs. Obama to make each of their books global publishing events of unprecedented scope and significance.”

Other publishers that were trying to sign the Obamas included Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins and Macmillan.

Former President Bill Clinton was only paid $15 million for his post-presidency memoir while former President George W. Bush got $10 million. Though the Obamas are working on separate memoirs, they decided to sell the rights jointly to increase the bidding war for them.
