“Glee’s” Chris Colfer Snaps Up Children’s Book Deal
While the rest of the Gleekers are clawing for recording contracts, outspoken Glee star Chris Colfer is using the same knack for the written word that recently turned him into a respected screenwriter to snap up a two-book deal with Little Brown Books for Young Readers. Chris’ first work as a novelist will come in the form of an adventure novel titled The Land of Stories. The tome is set to arrive on booksellers’ shelves next summer.
“When I was ten years old, I promised myself that if I ever had the opportunity to write this book, I would jump at the chance. This book has been at the core of my imagination for a long time and I’m excited and nervous to share it,” says Colfer, who recently penned the scripts for a Disney Channel pilot and the movie Struck by Lightning, currently in pre-production.
