Actress Abigail Breslin signs publishing debut with Harper Collins

MUMBAI: Award winning actress Abigail Breslin, best known to millions for her Academy Award-nominated breakthrough role in Little Miss Sunshine, has solidified herself over the years as one of the rising stars of young Hollywood. Breslin will soon be making her publishing debut with her book called This May Sound Crazy, which will be published by HarperCollins.


She will also be seen in her upcoming television debut role on Fox's highly anticipated Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens, has multiple films on the horizon, and a solo album titled The World Now scheduled for release 15 June, 2015.


Written with Breslin's wit and honesty, This May Sound Crazy is full of cautionary tales and clever advice ranging from why you should stop stalking your ex to how to survive your very own Halloween horror story. In this collection of nonfiction essays, Breslin brings her hilarious and heartfelt voice to the page as she explores the things nearest and dearest to every teen—love, loss, and Tumblr.


"I started my tumblr Mixtapes and Winter Coats because I wanted to share my late night ramblings and feels, such as talking to my cat at 2 am, with all of you. That blog evolved into my book, This May Sound Crazy. I hope when you read it, you'll see that you are not alone even when you're wondering when it's ok to text your crush first, which is the most terrifying situation ever," says Breslin.


"I'm so thrilled to be working with Abigail Breslin on This May Sound Crazy. She channels the angst of her generation with a fearlessness that's at once hilarious and deeply moving. Anyone who's ever had a broken heart or felt lost or who just wished for a perfect Christmas Day will feel instantly understood in these pages," adds HarperCollins executive editor Dave Linker.


World rights for This May Sound Crazy were sold to Linker from CAA and will be published in October 2015.
