HarperNonFiction will publish the first book by New Zealand YouTube star Jamie Curry in time for Christmas 2015.
Acquiring editor Rachel Kenny bought UK and Commonwealth rights, excluding Canada and ANZ, from HarperCollins New Zealand.
The publisher said Jamie’s World: They Let Me Write a Book! takes fans and followers “on a journey through her mind and life so far: the unexpected yet natural birth of her channel Jamie’s World, getting recognised at a Justin Bieber concert, figuring out how to ‘adult’, 10 ways to hide a double-chin, and much more.”
The publisher added the book will also include “hilarious drawings, doodles and Curry’s personal photographs.”
Curry said: "It's been super cool working on the book as it's something I've never done before! I'm excited for people to see this side of me which I haven't really talked about on the internet.”
The Jamie’s World YouTube channel commands a large global audience with more than 10m Facebook likes and nearly 1.4m You Tube subscribers, and over 50m lifetime views.!
Kenny said: “Not only is Jamie hysterically funny, with brilliant comic timing, she also has an enormous UK following, accounting for nearly 10m of her 50m+ lifetime views. We’re so excited to be publishing a truly original YouTube star with a fantastic personality and self-deprecating humour in spades.”
Jamie’s World: They Let Me Write a Book! will be published internationally in November 2015.
