‘Glee”s Chris Colfer Lands New Book Deal

chris-colfer-talks-new-book-stranger-than-fanfiction-at-ew-popfest-04As the Fox TV hit show “Glee” was winding down, star Chris Colfer was already working on his next project, a book series for children called The Land of Stories. 

Fast forward four years, and according to Entertainment Weekly, Colfer’s books have spent 48 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. So it should be no surprise that he’s landed yet another book deal. He’s writing an insider’s guide to The Land of Stories as well as two books in a new series.

The insider’s guide is set to be released next fall. The new series is set to be published in 2019.

This comes after Colfer partnered with Twentieth Century Fox and Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps to adapt The Land of Series into films. The first film, The Wishing Spell, will mark Colfer’s directorial debut.

Chris Colfer To Pen More Books in Series

It was just about this time last year when I told you Glee star Chris Colfer would be writing more books in his The Land of Stories series. Well, now he has even more to write.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the actor will be penning two more Land of Stories books — The Mother Goose Diaries and Queen Red Riding Hood’s Guide to Royalty — to be released in 2015 and 2016, a perfect project for him as Glee comes to an end next year.

But that’s not all. In addition to the new books in the series, Colfer also plans to write two picture books based on the Land of Stories series and two companion books to be released as part of a holiday box set next year.

Colfer is already a bestselling author from the first books in The Land of Stories series. As long as they continue to sell well, Colfer may not need to rush to find his next acting job after Glee ends. It seems like he’s doing just fine.

‘Glee’ Star Gets Three-Book Deal

Most of us who know actor Chris Colfer know him as “Kurt Hummel” on the hit Fox show, Glee, not as an author. But he is — and a bestselling author at that. And now he’s got a few more books on the way.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor-turned-author is working on the third and fourth books in his The Land of Stories series. The two books are expected to be released by Little, Brown’s children’s imprint in 2014 and 2015, continuing the stories that combine fairy tale and reality.

As if that weren’t enough, Colfer is also planning to write his first picture book, The Curvy Tree.

Sounds like a busy couple of years for Colfer, which might be good, considering there are talks there will only be a few more seasons left of Glee. What do you think of the actor’s book deal?
