Newberg said she was able to strike a deal by bringing three editors to Prince’s Paisley Park compound in Minneapolis.

Speaking on the process, Newberg said:

It’s never been done before…Editors don’t like to be in the same room making their pitches to the same potential clients. We had to do it because I knew he would not want to meet individually with editors.

Newberg also said that there is a chance that there would be “reproductions of Prince’s longhand pages” in the memoir.
