Glee's Chris Colfer has signed a two-book deal with Little Brown Books for Young Readers, EW reports:
"The first will be an adventure novel that draws elements from the very, very in-vogue world of classic fairy tales. The Land of Stories is set to hit stores in summer 2012, with the second as-of-yet untitled novel coming later…According to Colfer, The Land of Stories has been percolating in his brain for quite a while. 'When I was ten years old, I promised myself that if I ever had the opportunity to write this book, I would jump at the chance,' he says in the press release. 'This book has been at the core of my imagination for a long time and I’m excited and nervous to share it.'"
