Star Jones Lands Book Deal With Gallery Books
Posted on June 12, 2010
Star Jones, a former The View host, has landed a book deal with Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. Star Jones' novel will follow the female hosts of The Lunch Club, a popular daytime talk show, as they learn that a former colleague - who departed under mysterious circumstances, and is privy to all their backstage secrets - is coming back. The novel is scheduled for publication in Spring 2011.
Star Jones says, "As a huge fan of escapist reading - everything by Danielle Steel, Sex and the City, and any Devil Wears anything books - I've dreamed of writing a juicy novel for many years. Just like in the daytime talk show world, readers will love getting to know these characters and engaging in their lives. Over the course of the last 15 years in the television industry, I've met some of the most fascinating people, heard the most surprising situations, and have been privy to so many great stories and secrets. But while this novel will be dishy, it will be a work of fiction! A lady would never tell actual tales out of school!"
Update: The novel is called Satan's Sisters. There is a red couch and flames on the cover.
