Demi Lovato to publish two books

Lovato serves as inspiration for recovery with her new books

First she was an actress and a singer, and then she became an X-Factor judge. Now, Demi Lovato can add author to her resume as well, now that she has officially signed a deal with Macmillan Publishers to write two books.

One of Lovato’s inspirational books

“Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year” is due to be the first published book by the 21-year-old. This collection of inspirational quotes and what Lovato calls “morning meditation[s]” is inspired by the singer’s tweets, as well as her road to recovery from her personal struggles with self-harm and bulimia.

In her announcement about the book on Keek, Lovato stated, “One of the things that has helped me with recovery is taking every day one day at a time.”

“I hope it inspires you to be staying strong,” the singer later added.

The second book in the deal will be a memoir about the musician’s life. As a child actress—claiming a role in “Barney and Friends” at age 7—Demi Lovato had faced depression under the public eye for years, even though she often played happy-go-lucky characters. The memoir is hinted to touch on these personal subjects, as well as her work with anti-bullying campaigns and more.

“Staying Strong” is set to be released on Nov. 1 and its Spanish edition on Dec. 3. Lovato’s memoir will be published soon after.
