A book about the Obamas? Yes, please!

And it looks like that just might happen if the rumours are to be believed.

Barack and Michelle have reportedly signed a book deal with Penguin Random House for $60 million.

It is claimed that a "heated auction" took place over the last number of days with various publishers wanting to nab the deal.

According to The New York Times, Penguin Random House will reportedly make a "substantial" amount of money from worldwide sales.

Chief Executive of Penguin Random House, Markus Dohle, released a statement saying: "We are absolutely thrilled to continue our publishing partnership with President and Mrs. Obama.

"With their words and their leadership, they changed the world, and every day, with the books we publish at Penguin Random House, we strive to do the same.

"Now, 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."

We can't wait for this.

*SPOILERS*

By now, most people know Ken Kratz as the villain in the Steven Avery case; the attorney that was successful in putting Steven – and Brendan Dassey – behind bars for a crime he supposedly didn't commit. 

AND everyone totally ended up hating him at the end when it became known that he was involved in a sexting scandal with a domestic violence victim. 

Well, now the former attorney wants to write a book about the whole case.

According to WBAY-TV, Ken is working on a book of his own, "because the one voice forgotten to this point is Teresa Halbach," the women who Steven and Brendan were accused of killing in 2005. 

"Finally grateful to tell the whole story," Ken told the TV station. 

But, we're a little bit confused about the whole thing. First of all, we understand that Teresa's voice was the only one not heard, but how will Ken know what Teresa had to say about everything? 

And secondly, Ken now wants to work together with Steven to write the book.

Yesterday, Steven's new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, tweeted a letter that Mr Kratz sent Mr Avery in September 2015.

In the letter, Ken asks Steven, "to be honest about what happened.

"Since I'm the only person who probably knows more about your case than anyone else, I hoped that you would choose me to tell your story to," he wrote.

"Unfortunately, you only want to continue your nonsense about being set up. That's too bad, because you had one opportunity to finally tell all the details, but now that will never happen."
