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?

Three Memoirs Coming from Three Big Stars in 2014

It seems like every year, more and more celebrities pen memoirs. Some of them we care about. A lot of them we don’t. But 2014 seems like it might be a good year for celebrity books! Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts, comedian Martin Short, and Glee actress Lea Michele are all working on books to be released next year.

According to The New York Times, Robin Roberts’ book will be a memoir detailing her struggles with cancer and recent bout with a rare blood disorder. Of course, it will also include the life lessons she’s learned along the way, much of which is owed to her successful career in the TV industry. Published by Grand Central Publishing, the as-yet untitled book has an April 2014 release date.

According to The New York Times, Martin Short is also penning a memoir due to be released next Fall. His book will include details about his career in show business (including Saturday Night Live and The Three Amigos) as well as his 30-year marriage, which ended in 2010 when his wife passed away. Harper is publishing the  funnyman’s book, which is not yet titled.

And last but not least, Glee actress and Broadway starlet Lea Michele is penning a book, Brunette Ambition, due out next Spring. According to Entertainment Weekly, her book, published by Harmony Books, is not all memoir. It will be “part memoir, part how-to, and part style-guide.” It will tell the story of her rise to fame and include fitness tips, exclusive photos, and “career insights.”
