Now fans of Tyler Oakley can hold at least a piece of him in their hands — in book form.
Oakley announced to this 6.8 million YouTube fans that his next adventure will be the printed word, releasing a book in October called “Binge.”
He describes the book as featuring “everything I’ve wanted to share with you but didn’t feel quite ready to.” Oakley said he’s been working on the project since he turned down another book offer in 2012. At the time he says he wasn’t ready, but after writing for two years, he signed a deal with Simon & Schuster in December 2014.
Oakley isn’t the only YouTuber to ink a deal with a publishing house; it’s become something of a trend for digital stars to turn back to pen and paper in the past year, with big names like Hannah Hart and Zoe Sugg putting out tomes. Oakley referenced his hesitation in the past over a book deal in an interview with the Daily Dot earlier this year.
