Mary Matalin may publish Rove’s memoir.

Karl Rove has recently received attention for shopping his high-profile memoir to publishers in an auction that kicked off on Dec. 6. He was expected to receive a “seven-figure payday.” Yet despite the initial buzz, the New York Observer reports that Rove may end up going with GOP strategist Mary Matalin’s Threshold Editions. His other option is Free Press, a formerly “fiercely conservative shop that now specializes in general narrative nonfiction.”
