Val Chmerkovskiy Dishes on Brother Maks Having A Big Part in His Upcoming Book

Val Chmerkovskiy‘s upcoming memoir, “I’ll Never Change My Name”, will be out in just a few more months — and his brother Maksim, has a big part in it.

Speaking with People, the DWTS pro dished about how Maks not only wrote the forward, but the book is almost Maks’ memoir, too.

“While reading this book you’ll quickly realize that my memoir is more like our memoir because [Maks] plays such a prominent role in my life,” Val shared. “I love him dearly, and only he and I truly understand and value our bond.”

He continues, “We’ve shared so many life-changing experiences together and I owe a lot of my life to him. We had bunk beds most of our lives and shared everything from conversations to the adult magazines we hid underneath those bunk beds.”

“I was very lucky to have an older brother. For most of my life, he bulldozed through heartaches and disappointments while I walked behind him enjoying the wisdom of hindsight.”

Val‘s book will be out in March 2018.

Chris Colfer Turned A Memoir Book Offer Into 'The Land of Stories' Instead

Chris Colfer Turned A Memoir Book Offer Into 'The Land of Stories' Instead

Just last week, we were given the wonderful news that Chris Colfer‘s “The Land of Stories” series truly isn’t over at all, and he’ll be writing two new books for it!

Earlier this year, the author and actor spoke with CBC’s Q podcast about how he landed his book deal in the first place.

Chris revealed that he was actually offered to write a memoir.

“I feel like when you write autobiographies, it finalizes things in a way,” Chris says. “And there’s so much more that I wanted to do with my career, with my life.”

At the time of the offer, he was only 19.

Chris adds, “It just didn’t feel right…I mean, how would you feel to pen your memoir at only 19? ‘And then I was able to drink. The End.’ Ya know? It just wouldn’t have been an interesting read to me.”
