Jennie Garth Inks Deal at New American Library

garth coverActress Jennie Garth has landed a book deal with Penguin’s New American Library (NAL) imprint. She will be working with writer Emily Heckman on this project.

The publisher plans to release Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde on April 1, 2014. Senior editor Jennifer Schuster negotiated the deal with Randy James of James/Levy Management.

Here’s more from The Hollywood Reporter: “Garth first gained fame by playing Kelly Taylor for 10 seasons on the Aaron Spelling-created soap, Beverly Hills, 90210. She also appeared in The CW revival and toplined the WB sitcom What I Like About You alongside Amanda Bynes. The book news comes after Garth’s former 90210 co-star Jason Priestley announced his memoir two months ago, which, at the time, generated widespread attention.”

Not Giving Up the Ghost

Aside from making my debut LA Times Book Review column, “Dark Passages”, on ghostwriters going solo, the Arizona Republic’s Kerry Lengel tackled the same subject, interviewing a slew of mystery & suspense staples (like yours truly) as well as Little, Brown publisher Michael Pietsch. But if that isn’t enough, the Women’s National Book Association will host a discussion on the same topic Wednesday evening at the Small Press Center. Join panelists Meg Leder (editor at Perigee Books), ghostwriter-centric agent Madeline Morel, Emily Heckman and Stephanie Gunning as they discuss, as moderator Janet Reid terms it, “the business of ghost writing, co-writing, ‘as told to’ and other forms of ‘invisible writing’ from the authors who write it, an agent who sells it and an editor who acquires it.”
