Sh*t My Kids Ruined Lands Book Deal

The Tumblr to book deal trend continues apace as Julie Haas Brophy landed a book deal with Villard for her blog, Sh*t My Kids Ruined.

Just like the Tumblr blog, the book will include snappy commentary and plenty of photos of wrecked objects, rooms, and children–like this orange and blue paint mess that created a carpet-cleaning emergency. According to Publishers Weekly, the deal was negotiated by Inkwell Management’s Richard Pine and Villard’s Marnie Cochran acquired the title.

Here’s more about the book: “[It] will feature photos and stories of children destroying everything from windows to VCRs to their parents’ physique. The book, like the blog, will aim to offer a cathartic way for parents to laugh through, and off, the frustrations of child-rearing.”
