After Leona Lewis won top prize on the U.K. talent show The X Factor in 2006, her album Spirit went to the top of the international music charts. What can the 23 year-old do to top that?
Write her memoirs, of course.
Hodder & Stoughton has signed her to a big book deal, and will sell rights around the world. The volume will be stuffed with over 100 new photos and will be published in the fall...right before her second album goes on-sale.
"The last two years have been an unbelievable experience for me," the London native told Billboard.
Her editor, Fenella Bates, added, "This will be the first time Leona tells her story of how The X-Factor launched her from waitressing in Pizza Hut to stardom on both sides of the Atlantic."
