Publisher inks deal with mother and daughter
A local publisher has signed a multi-book deal with an actress, producer and New York Times bestselling author and her daughter, a model, musician and YouTube star.
Zondervan, a Christian publisher in Grand Rapids, said today it inked the deal with Candace Cameron Bure and Natasha Bure.
The deal includes Natasha Bure’s young adult non-fiction book, “Let’s Be Real: Living Life as an Open and Honest You,” which was released last month, as well as Candace Cameron Bure’s gift book, “Staying Stylish: Cultivating a Confident Look, Style, and Attitude,” which will be released this fall, and a currently untitled trade book by Cameron Bure being released next spring.
Cameron Bure is most famous for her role as “D.J. Tanner” on the family sitcom “Full House” and her returning role in the Netflix revival “Fuller House.” She has also appeared on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” “The View” and in various films.
Natasha Bure, a singer, model and social media celebrity, competed on season 11 of “The Voice” and has a YouTube channel where she posts music videos, as well as fashion and beauty tutorials.
“Staying Stylish” by Cameron Bure will provide readers with tips, tricks and products she uses and offer insights on "inner beauty" and faith.
“The world has a way of defining you if you don't know who you are before you get out there,” she said. “I've fought this battle all my life, and I’ve discovered that classy kindness can anchor a person in who God created them to be. I’m thrilled to partner with Zondervan in bringing what is really my keystone message to women today.”
"Let’s Be Real" by Natasha Bure aims to help teens be confident and authentic.
“This is real, this is life and we all go through it,” she said. “I want to encourage others to live their life and not try to be someone else. Be open, honest and the best you you can be.”
Zondervan said Cameron Bure’s trade book will “reveal the thought patterns and practices that have empowered her to flourish and give readers permission to go off script, stand their ground with elegance and stay true to themselves, despite others’ expectations.”
Stephanie Smith in Zondervan’s trade division, in conjunction with teams at Zondervan Young Adult and Zondervan Gift, acquired the books.
Candace Cameron Bure and Natasha Bure are represented by Redrock Entertainment Development and Allison Cohen with The Gersh Agency.
Zondervan, part of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, publishes the New International Version Bible, as well as gift books, non-fiction, young adult and children’s books and academic resources for pastors, churches and seminaries.
The company’s products are sold worldwide and translated into nearly 200 languages.
