In what might be a record advance paid for world rights to a single book, Kitty Kelley, the controversial biographer of stars and near-mythic public figures, signed with Warner Books for a figure reported by one insider to be "over $5 million."
Although Warner would not divulge the subject of the biography, which is due in 1995, speculation centered on Great Britain's Royal Family.
Ellen Herrick, director of publicity at Warner, said that Kelley requested that the subject of the book not be disclosed. Presumably, her access to sources--particularly if royalty were involved--would be jeopardized if the nature of the project became known.
