Hodder & Stoughton has acquired a second book by reality television star Joey Essex, titled The Book of You (and Me).
Senior editor Briony Gowlett acquired world rights in The Book of You (and Me) from Amanda Preston at LBA in association with Dave Read at Neon Management.
Gowlett said: “I’m excited to be working with Joey again on his next book, one that I know his fans will love.”
Hodder describes The Book of You (and Me) as “a hilarious interactive book for fans to co-create”. It will include specially curated tasks and musings from Essex. The book encourages the reader to include their own responses and undertake the exercises set.
Essex said: “My second book is going to be full of surprises and different ways for fans to get involved and I can’t wait to meet everyone again at the signings.”
Hodder & Stoughton published Essex’s autobiography, Being Reem, last year. To date, it has sold 37,532 copies across all physical editions and over 6,000 copies in digital. The publisher will release The Book of You (and Me) in hardback on 21st May.
