Glee star, Chris Colfer has announced a deal to write 3 more books for his Land of Stories children’s series. His first book, 2012’s The Wishing Spell, was a #1 New York Times bestseller. The follow up, The Enchantress Returns, released this summer made the Top 10. It’s no surprise the publisher has signed on form more.
From the press release:
Book Three in Colfer’s Land of Stories series is scheduled to be released in fall 2014 with the fourth book following in 2015. Both books will be simultaneously available in hardcover, ebook, and audio book editions. In addition, Colfer will publish an original picture book, The Curvy Tree, in spring 2015. Illustrated by Brandon Dorman, the picture book will be based on a tale from Colfer’s The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell, which brought readers on a quest filled with magic spells, laugh-out-loud humor, and page-turning adventure.
“The Land of Stories has been an incredible journey for me as a writer, and I am so happy the series has a home at Little, Brown Books for Young Readers,” remarked Chris Colfer. “The fan support and love for these characters has been more than a dream come true—I’m humbled and excited to be able to share these new adventures with my readers.”
“Beginning with his spectacular turn hosting the BookExpo America Children’s Breakfast in 2012 and continuing with the excellent critical reception of his books, Chris Colfer has proven he is an exceptionally talented and committed author with a passionate fan base,” commented Megan Tingley, Executive Vice President and Publisher of Little Brown Books for Young Readers. “We look forward to sharing more enthralling tales from the Land of Stories with his legions of fans.”
Also Chris is running a contest. His next book signing for The Land of Stories: The Enchantress Returns will take place in a US city voted on by fans.
