Abbi Glines Lands Book Deal for Self-Published Novels

After dominating our Self-Published Bestsellers List, YA novelist Abbi Glines has signed a deal with Simon & Schuster’s Simon Pulse imprint for The Vincent Boys and The Vincent Brothers.

According to the publisher, Glines has sold more than 150,000 digital copies of the books since October 2011. Simon Pulse editorial director Jennifer Klonsky negotiated the deal with Dystel & Goderich’s Jane Dystel.

Simon Pulse has already released both books in eBook format. The Vincent Boys will come out in both hardcover and trade paperback format on October 30th. The Vincent Brothers will follow on December 18th.

Here’s more from the release: “The Vincent Boys features Ashton Gray, Sawyer Vincent, and Beau Vincent. Ashton and Sawyer have been together forever. She’s the preacher’s daughter; he’s the town’s Golden Boy. But Ashton can’t deny her attraction to bad-boy Beau. He’s the hottest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways that she’s only dreamed about, and one guy she should probably stay away from…but can’t.”

The deal includes North American, audio and eBook rights.
