I’ve been waiting for this and probably even asked for it on the podcast. ABC, about time you monetize your show! I saw this on Once Upon a Time Fans, and the original story is from EW.com. Yep, we’ll be making this our April book club choice.
ABC’s Once Upon a Time is expanding its kingdom to the publishing realm with a new book series.
In what seems like a natural pairing for the show, Once Upon is debuting a fantasy novel from Disney-owned Hyperion books.
The first title in what may be a series of books is titled Reawakened (cover image above) and it’s novelization of the show’s first season and promises to give “fans of the show a whole new look at their favorite characters and stories.” The narrative will be told in alternating points-of-view—that of Emma Swan (portrayed by Jennifer Morrison in the show) in the real world of Storybrooke, and Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) in Fairy Tale Land. The novel is written by Odette Beane, and based upon the TV series by Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.
