Zombie-loving humorist Seth Grahame-Smith landed “a rumored $575,000″ two-book deal with Grand Central Press, according to Publishers Weekly. The first book of the series is tentatively titled, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.”
Grahame-Smith won Internet fame for his Quirk Books bestseller, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” GalleyCat has reported on this viral hit since its inception, including that video interview with a Quirk editor. Meanwhile, PPZ backlash has already begun.
Here’s more from the PW article: “[PPZ] came on assignment from Quirk’s editorial director, Jason Rekulak–he has been lifted into another literary stratosphere. (Quirk currently has more than 120,000 copies in print of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, after publishing the book on April 1.)”
