‘Bold and Beautiful’ Inks Book Deal

One of the world’s most watched daytime dramas is making the leap from the small screen to the printed page in a new book deal with publisher Pan Macmillan.

A new series of novellas will recount all-new love stories written by established romance authors and “The Bold and The Beautiful’s” executive producer and head writer Bradley P. Bell. 

The novellas will be published simultaneously in print by Pan Macmillan and digitally by Momentum, as the soap opera approaches its 7,000th episode and 27th year on-air.

“Love stories that have yet to be seen on television can now fully ignite between the covers of these novels,” says Bell. “This partnership with Pan Macmillan and Momentum expands the choices our fans have to be entertained by the signature characters of ‘The Bold and The Beautiful.’”

The first two titles, Forbidden Affair by Amy Andrews and Collision Course by Shannon Curtis, will be released in February 2014 with the next two titles set to follow in April.
