Atria Books has announced a two-book deal with bestselling self- published author Jamie McGuire. BEAUTIFUL DISASTER, the first book in the deal, will be released immediately as an Atria e-book with an Atria trade paperback edition available since August.

BEAUTIFUL DISASTER, McGuire’s fourth novel, was originally self-published as an ebook in May 2011 and as a self-published trade paperback in October 2011. Throughout the spring and summer, it has been steadily rising on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists, recently appearing at No. 9 on the Times list. The ebook has sold more than 200,000 copies in the U.S. and foreign rights have been licensed in ten countries, with more deals pending. Collectively, the book has received more than 7,000 overwhelmingly positive reader reviews on BN.com, i Bookstore, Amazon.com and Goodreads.

Judith Curr, Executive Vice President and Publisher of Atria Books, says, “There’s a very good reason that BEAUTIFUL DISASTER has garnered such a large number of glowing reader reviews. As so many of the comments point out, it’s a book that hooks you right from the start and keeps you turning the pages all night.”

Filled with romance, passion, and unexpected twists, BEAUTIFUL DISASTER is the story of a young woman who has escaped a painful past only to find herself torn between two men: one who represents safety and security, and another who seems likely to pull her back toward danger.

McGuire’s highly anticipated next novel, WALKING DISASTER, will continue this story from a different and surprising point of view. WALKING DISASTER is scheduled for publication in 2013 by Atria Books.
