Amanda Knox's upcoming memoir has a title, a cover design and a new publication date.

HarperCollins announced the book is entitled Waiting To Be Heard.

It will come out on April 30, two months later than originally scheduled.

The date was changed out of deference to the court in Italy that scheduled a March 25 hearing for the prosecution's appeal of the former exchange student's acquittal over the 2007 murder of her British roommate Meredith Kercher.

The 25-year-old Ms Knox returned to her native Seattle, Washington, in 2011 after spending four years in a Perugia jail.

Her ordeal made international headlines and her book deal, announced in February, was reportedly worth four million dollars (£2.5m).

The cover features a close-up of an intense, unsmiling Knox. The picture was taken earlier this year.
