The Fictitious Novel from “Jane the Virgin” Is Being Published IRL
Jane the Virgin fans, rejoice! As you’ll likely recall, Jane Gloria Villanueva, AKA Gina Rodriguez, finally signed a book deal this season for a romance novel called Snow Falling all about her late husband Michael. Now, thanks to Adams Media, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, you’ll soon be able to read the character’s words, as the novel has gotten a publishing deal IRL!
That’s right: The book that gave Jane the happy ending she always dreamed of with Michael will soon be hitting your local bookstore. Set in 1902 Miami, the tale penned by “Jane” will recount the love story that never was and will feature “railroad tycoons, hotel booms, and exciting expansion for the Magic City.” Wow!
The 240-page read will also contend with a love triangle (of course!) as the novel’s heroine, Josephine Galena Valencia, who is “newly engaged to Pinkerton Detective Martin Cadden,” is forced to “decide whether her heart truly belongs with heroic Martin or dashing Rake [Solvino]” — a hotel owner from her past. We are so ready for this!
Show creator Jennie Snyder Urman has already given the project her stamp of approval, telling fans in a statement to “prepare to get swept up in an epic love story.”
The real-life publisher is equally excited. As Karen Cooper, Vice President and Publisher at Adams Media, revealed, “We’re huge fans of the show and the way Jennie and her team tease ‘reality’ in such a fantastic and purposeful way. It just felt right that we should riff off that conceit and give Jane’s fans the [happily ever after] they have been waiting for.”
Pick up a copy of Snow Falling when it comes out on November 14. *Adds to reading list*
