Starting in late 2014 and 2015, five books will be released through Keyboard Press from some of YouTube’s biggest stars: iJustine, Shane Dawson, ShayCarl, Connor Franta and Joey Graceffa.

The books, which are expected to range from comedic to dramatic, fiction to nonfiction and memoirs will seek to encompass the strengths and personalities of the stars the books are representing.

These aren’t the first YouTubers to put “author” on their resume — Toby TurnerEpic Meal Time, Kaleb Nation, Ken Tanaka and, most recently, Grace Helbig all have books of their own.
