Random House Grants Jason Segel Three-Book Deal
A lot of actors and entertainers have proven that they can do it all. Some sing, dance and act while others like Jason Segel act, produce, compose and eventually become best-selling authors. The writer part was recently introduced with his book trilogy Nightmares!.
Nightamres! according to Segel is targeted for children, inspiring them to overcome their fears (no matter what they are) and to let them know that they can accomplish anything if they’re brave enough or even willing to give it a try.
“I couldn’t be more excited that Nightmares! has found a home at Random House. Ultimately, it’s a story about learning that we can accomplish anything, as long as we are brave enough to try. These are the types of stories that always inspired me,” Segel said in a statement.
Even though these messages are targeted for kids, I feel like they’re appropriate for adults as well. Many adult books or novels convey the same messages. Although novels are works of art at times, making it fun like Jason Segel intends to is something to look forward to. This may seem embarrassing but I can’t wait for that trilogy to be released and read it regardless of the fact that it’s for kids. I’ve always been a fan of Jason Segel and if you have watched his movies you’ll agree.
This funny man has starred in various comedies such as I Love You, Man, Forgetting Sarah Marshal, The Five-Year Engagement, Knocked Up, Despicable Me, Bad Teacher and many more. He’s also known for his role in the TV series How I Met Your Mother.
Random House announced that it will publish Segel’s trilogy of books, targeted to middle-schoolers and scheduled for release in fall 2014 by Delacorte Press. The books will be co-written with author Kirsten Miller.
