From Website to Book Deal: PleaseFireMe.com


PleaseFireMe.com has just sold the book rights to Citadel Press at auction. Citadel Press is the publisher of the New York Times bestselling book, I Hope They Sell Beer in Hell by Tucker Max.

Acquiring editor, Amy Pyle is said to envision it as a huge franchise. In fact, according to founder and co-author, Adam Chromy, she says, “When I first brought it up at our editorial meeting, our publisher threatened to fire me if I didn’t get this book.”

The book will be written by Adam Chromy and Jill Morris and will include some of the best posts from PleaseFireMe.com along with funny advice on how to cope or escape malemployment.

Several Hollywood producers are circling the project as a potential sitcom and Chromy is already launching the sequel, PleaseDumpMe.com for all the romantics in the world who are stuck in a love that they just can’t leave.
