Connor Franta has written a book and will be doing a book tour

One of the first reasons I knew Connor would be coming out this year was when I saw his “memoir” sitting on Amazon’s recommended book pages a few months ago. What better way to come out than to write a book about it?  This did not surprise me, and it shouldn’t surprise you either, as Connor’s entire career has been built on never subtle ad placement opportunities.

The new book is titled “A Work In Progress” and will feature many photos taken by him and of him by others. “I do a couple lighter topics like my childhood, my upbringing, my family, stories from school, dropping out of school and moving to Los Angeles,” Franta explains in his new video “I Have A Secret.”

But it’s not all light reading because there has to be at least a few chapters on coming to accept his sexuality. (After all, this is the reason he is writing a book)

“I go a little bit deeper and talk about some more serious things like body image, depression, sexuality, and essentially just the overall up and down journey of finding myself and accepting that person,” he adds. Connor has been writing a LOT of poetry lately and has been making very deep~ videos so I can only imagine how he has been channeling this into a book.

For those of you wanting to meet Connor, he will be doing a book tour and will be hitting up The Mall of America (in Minnesota), followed by Houston, Orlando, New York, New Jersey and Los Angeles. A rather short book tour but perhaps more dates will be added. You can expect a signed book and a hug at every stop.

“A Work In Progress” will be released April 21st and can be pre-ordered here.

    1. I’m so sorry to hear that, Theresa! Connor is so popular that he probably only had a limited amount of allotted time to sign and meet people. I would recommend calling around to a few of the bookstores he signed at and seeing if they have any signed books in back
      stock that you could buy if they’ll ship it to you

    1. Hey Zoe,

      I would call any of the bookstores he signed at that are on this post’s list and ask if they have any extra signed copies you could buy. Most bookstores have authors sign quite a few.
