Two more from One Direction for HC
01.07.11 | Graeme Neill
HarperCollins has bought another two books by "X Factor" boyband One Direction for publication this autumn.
Publishing director Natalie Jerome and brand development manager Richard Haines bought world rights from Modest! Management. Dare to Dream: Life as One Direction will be published on 15th September as a £16.99 hardback. The publisher said the book will be full of unseen photos and behind the scenes gossip.
Aimed at younger readers, One Direction The Official Annual will be released on 1st September, priced £7.99. It will feature interviews, photos and information about the band.
HarperCollins published One Direction: Forever Young earlier this year. Natalie Jerome said: "Achieving a number one bestselling book just weeks after finishing 'The X Factor', One Direction are clearly a phenomenon and with the release of their first single and album, this autumn is going to be incredibly exciting for them. We’re stocking up on ear plugs at HarperCollins!"
