Lauren Conrad Inks Deal To Write Three-Book 'L.A. Candy' Spin-Off

Lauren Conrad has kept busy since leaving "The Hills" in 2009. And now the reality-star-turned-novelist just signed on to write three more young adult novels for publisher HarperCollins, reports Us Weekly. Lauren first warmed our YA-loving hearts with her best-selling page turner "L.A. Candy," which followed the "fictional" Jane Roberts—who becomes famous for living her life on television and goes on to intern in L.A. amid boy and BFF troubles.

We couldn't put down the quasi-autobiographical "Candy" books, but we're kind of even more excited for Lauren's new series—a spin-off trilogy called the "The Fame Game." Lauren definitely takes the adage "write what you know" to heart. "The Fame Game" will also take place in the world of reality television, something the former star of "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills" knows plenty about. This time, however, the story will focus on the character Madison from her first series.

Lauren describes Madison as a girl who loves fame and says she "has fun with the press, she enjoys the attention, she welcomes scandal." How could we not be on the edge of our seats to read about a character as fascinating as Heidi—um, we mean Madison?

For the record, Lauren swears none of the characters are based on real people, just Hollywood stereotypes. Sure, Lauren, whatever you say...

Are you saving a spot on your bookshelf for "The Fame Game"? Do you believe that none of the "L.A. Candy" characters have real life counterparts? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter!
