HarperCollins hopes to create new generations of Carrie Bradshaw fashionistas. The publisher announced that Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell will write a new book about Carrie's formative highschool years called "The Carrie Diaries". It sounds like Gossip Girl the prequel.
HarperCollins Publishers announced today that it has acquired world rights to The Carrie Diaries by Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell. Bushnell takes readers back to Carrie Bradshaw's formative years in high school, giving an inside look at Carrie's friendships, romances, and how she realized her dream of becoming a writer. This is Bushnell's first teen novel.
The two-book deal was negotiated by Alessandra Balzer, Co-Publisher of the Balzer & Bray imprint at HarperCollins Children's, with Heather Schroder at ICM. The first book is scheduled for global publication in Fall 2010."We are incredibly thrilled," said Alessandra Balzer of Balzer & Bray. "Teenagers are rabid fans of the Sex and the City book and show. I can't wait to see what happens when Candace turns her sharp eye for social commentary to the other competitive jungle that is high school."Ann-Janine Murtagh, Fiction and Picture Book Publisher at HarperCollins Children's Books in the UK added "I am absolutely delighted to be publishing these two fabulous titles in the UK where Carrie Bradshaw has such a loyal following already. I am sure that Candace will offer us an irresistible insight into Carrie Bradshaw's early hopes and dreams and create stories which are sure to have universal appeal.""I've always been interested in exploring Carrie's teenage years," Bushnell said. "Carrie in high school did not follow the crowd--she led it. It was there that she began observing and commenting on the social scene." source
