Chris Colfer introduces his novel THE LAND OF STORIES

"Glee" star Chris Colfer has written a new book called "The Land of Stories" which is now in stores. The book is about two boys named Connor and Alex. The boys love reading fantasy stories and one day "they find themselves sucked into their favorite book of fairy tales." Colfer says that he came up with the idea, because "I used to ask, Mommy, who's the man in the mirror? Why's he talking to the evil queen? Why's he so evil? Why does she hate Snow White so much? I just tried to clarify the questions that I had as a kid."

Colfer wrote the book during the "Glee" world tour. "I was writing constantly in my hotel room and under the stage during performances, even, and I'd be singing, 'I Want Your Hand' and I'd think of something really witty for Connor to say. Had to run downstairs to the changing booth, type it into my computer, run off and do 'Single Ladies' in leotard. It was an interesting summer. I don't think I've mentally recovered from that time."

In an interview with the "Examiner" he was asked if there will more books featuring Alex and Connor ? "I actually have another novel coming out this year that hasn't been announced yet that is young adult. I would love to continue with the Land of Stories. We'll see. I guess it depends on if people like them, if people like Alex and Connor. But I got a bunch of stories in me. I feel like I was born with, like, a major to-do list of stories to tell. I'll have a new story to tell as long as people want to listen to me," he said.
