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.”

On top of that, Chris will also be coming out with two new books for the series, which will bring back twins Alex and Conner, while also introducing new ones.

Could this be that prequel series he talked about?

Reminder that this is all on top of a big-screen adaption of the books as well.

Congrats, Chris!

Maddie Ziegler Has More Ideas For Even More Fiction Books (Exclusive)

Maddie Ziegler Has More Ideas For Even More Fiction Books (Exclusive)

Just this week, Maddie Ziegler launched her first fiction book with “The Audition” — and she was really excited to be able to write it at such a young age.

“It was awesome to getting to write a fiction series,” the 15-year-old dancer and actress told JJJ in a recent interview. “I never thought that I’d get to write a book at all.”

She adds, “Getting to do ‘The Maddie Diaries’, which was a memoir, that was insane. That was already such a huge accomplishment for myself and then the publishing house came to me about the fiction series and that was incredible.”

Maddie says that after writing the first in her fiction series, she’s now thinking about other ideas for more books.

“There are plenty of books that I now see myself writing in the future and there are plenty of ideas for that, but for the first ones, it had to be about dance,” she shared. “Dance is my life.”

“I’ve done it since I was two-years-old and it is the thing I know the most. I’m very honored that I got this opportunity to write about dance.”

Maddie‘s “The Audition” is out now and available wherever books are sold.
