Eight years after the news broke that Frey fabricated parts of his bestselling memoir "A Million Little Pieces," the author is back in the news, this time for landing a multibook deal that will probably make him a millionbillionschmegajillionaire. And no, no one blogging tonight is bitter about that all, in case you were wondering.
The publisher announced Wednesday that Frey's production company, Full Fathom Five, will turn out three novels and nine novellas. The project also includes YouTube videos, gaming designed by Google's Niantic Labs and social media. Twentieth Century Fox has acquired film rights.
The first book will be "Endgame: The Calling." It is due out in October and will be co-authored by Nils Johnson-Shelton.
Frey has already written YA for HarperCollins with Jobie Hughes under the collective pseudonym Pittacus Lore. People on Twitter seem really happy.
James Frey just sold a Hunger Games-esque YA novel called Endgame to HarperCollins as well as the film rights to Fox. Also, there is no God.
