'Glee' actor Colfer to write more 'Land of Stories' books

Chris Colfer is seeing a long and varied future for his “Land of Stories” fantasy books.

The actor, who played Kurt Hummel on the TV show “Glee,” has signed a new multiyear deal for his best-selling series.

Little, Brown Books for Young Readers announced the agreement Tuesday. It will extend “Land of Stories” to a sixth and (presumed) final book, along with a graphic novel and fairy tale collection based on the series. Four books have come out so far.

The sixth book, currently untitled, is scheduled for July 2017, followed in the fall of that year by the graphic novel. The fairy tale book will come out in the fall 2016.

According to Little, Brown, the “Land of Stories” series has sold more than 1 million copies and has been translated into 16 languages.

And not exactly TLoS related, but USWeekly announced that Chris' YA novel will be named 'Stranger Than Fan Fiction',  although in the same article they write 'Stranger Than Fiction' so it's not really clear what it's going to be.

Chris did a twitter Q&A today, and since there were a few questions about TLoS and Chris' future books in general I decided to put them here as well:

Copperfield's announces best-selling books for 2015

Children’s Top Sellers for 2015

The top five best-selling children’s books for 2015 include: “Smarty Marty’s Got Game” by Giants sports personality Amy Gutierrez, whose book also claimed the top spot in 2014. Guitierrez is a local author who has been a frequent speaker to schools, which, coupled with the topic, explains the ongoing success of the book in the North Bay.

Another 2015 event with “Glee” television star Chris Colfer resulted in his new book, “The Land of Stories 4: Beyond the Kingdoms,” claiming the No. 2 spot for kids books, and the first in the series, “The Land of Stories 1: The Wishing Spell,” showing up in the seventh spot. John Green’s “Paper Towns,” a young adult novel made into a movie, took the third position.

“Diary of A Wimpy Kid 10: Old School,” took fourth. Local favorite Mac Barnett took fifth with “Terrible Two.” TV star Jason Segel congested Petaluma streets with a book-signing that launched his book “Nightmares! The Sleepwalker Tonic” for middle grades into sixth place. Dr. Seuss experienced the Harper Lee syndrome with the publication of a recently discovered “new” work called “What Pet Should I Get?,” which claimed the eighth spot.

Copperfield’s Top 8 Best-selling Kids Books of 2015

1.“ Smarty Mary’s Got Came” by Amy Gutierrez

2. “The Land of Stories 4: Beyond the Kingdoms” by Chris Colfer

3. “Paper Towns” by John Green

4. “Diary of a Wimpy Kid 10: Old School” by Jeff Kinney

5. “Terrible Two” by Mac Barnett

6. “Nightmares! The Sleepwalker Tonic” by Jason Segel

7. “The Land of Stories 1: The Wishing Spell” by Chris Colfer

8. “What Pet should I Get?” by Dr. Seuss

A lot of kids are going to be getting some really fantastic books for the holidays. Smile

This really shows the commercial staying power of Chris's books. We expect a big spike in sales when a new volume comes out, but to have one during the Christmas season shows that the series has major legs. Am so pleased for Chris.

The Land of Stories Book 5 by Chris Colfer (Little, Brown, $19.99; ISBN 978-0-316-38329-5). 500,000 copies.

Very impressive that the initial hardback printing for LOS 5 is half a million.

Colfer's narration is zippy and fun. They're his words, so he knows how they should be read. With plenty of smart one-liners ("The Big Bad Wolf was a great villain, but a better rug") Colfer is clearly having fun delivering them. - See more at: http://www.parents-choice.org/product.cfm?product_id=34225&StepNum=1&award=aw#sthash.UiF4r9YM.dpuf

The Top 100 Children’s Books on Goodreads!

Like Charlie finding his golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, a child finding the right book to read opens the door to hours of joy and wonderment…and sometimes Everlasting Gobstoppers! We all have our favorites—the books we read over and over again until the pages were falling out—but which books should be on every kid’s shelves? We ran the numbers on millions of titles to find the top 100 children’s books according to Goodreads members!
We looked for the best reviewed books, all with average ratings above a 4.0 (a high bar that cuts out giants like Ramona and Huck Finn). This time we also decided to focus our search on chapter books and middle grade books for that magical time when a child has graduated from picture books and is reading alone, but isn’t ready for YA favorites such as The Hunger Games. (For teen readers, check out our Top 100 Young Adult Books!) Of course, every child is different and no list is ever complete. What beloved book did you read to tatters when you were a kid?

“Land of Stories,” by Chris Colfer
This is the story of twin brother and sister, Conner and Alex. As they struggle with their father’s death, they find themselves sucked into a book of fairy tales their grandmother used to read to them. To their surprise, they discover their grandmother is the Fairy Godmother. Conner and Alex now have to find ways to help the characters of this wonderful new world. At some point in the series, you come across all the fairy tale characters from all the classic stories. This is a wonderful series of books. “The Wishing Spell” is the first book. They are all read by the author, Chris Colfer, who is also an actor. He brings all the characters to life by using a different voice for each character.
