Megyn Kelly signed a book deal with HarperCollins Thursday, and the numbers attached are huuuuge, reported Deadline.

The Fox News anchor will publish a book in the fall after signing a deal in the $3–$4 million range, confirmed “Page Six.”

This past year was a big one for Kelly. Sure, she went head-to-head with Trump in the first GOP debate of the election season (and then just inspired him to step away from the debate scene altogether). But then there was the interview on The Kelly File with Republican Muslim Coalition president Saba Ahmed, in which Ahmed showed up in an American flag hijab and totally owned it.

Of course Donald Trump’s presence in the political scene hasn’t hurt this whole ordeal. A source told “Page Six” that the Trump controversy during the GOP debate season has “only helped increase interest” in Kelly. The Trump campaign has been interesting for most of America, but it’s proven particularly lucrative for one Megyn Kelly.
