“Hi my name is Rachel Berry and I’ll be auditioning for the role of… author.”
Are you ready for some exciting news, Glee fans? Shining star Lea Michele has just announced the newest chapter in her picture perfect storybook of a life — she’s going to write a book! Oh yes, we can practically hear your squeals of delight.
The FOX actress took to her twitter Thursday morning to reveal that she’s “so excited” that she has signed a deal with Harmony Books. Her book — titled Brunette Ambition — is described as a part-memoir, part-“how-to” and part-style guide with plenty of behind-the-scenes perspective. The pages will chronicle Michele’s transition from a normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television.
Michele hopes that Brunette Ambition will offer practical advice and lessons for young women who are looking to follow in her nearly flawless footsteps. There wasn’t a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today.” The actress revealed in a statement .“But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm and hard work to make your dreams come true.”
This marks the fourth Glee star to snag a book deal since joining the musically inclined show — Jane Lynch, Chris Colfer and Jenna Ushkowitz have also made the transition from actor to author. However, something tells us that Michele’s book is going to be bigger than Rachel Berry’s collection of reindeer sweaters and penny loafers.
Brunette Ambition is set for publication in Spring of 2014. So far Michele has tackled Broadway, TV, movies and now the literary world — Rachel Berry would definitely be proud. Are you going to buy Michele’s how-to book of wonderment? Sing your thoughts in the comments below!
