As he neared “The End” of the fourth volume in his bestselling The Land of Stories series, author Chris Colfer had an epiphany.

“I just knew I wasn’t done,” said Colfer, who gained famed for his portrayal of Kurt Hummel on the hit TV series Glee. “I started to get so depressed as I was finishing what was supposed to be the last book that I asked my editor if I could write another one.”

Sure, said Little, Brown’s Alvina Ling. In fact, she ordered two more installments. The fifth, An Author’s Odyssey, publishes July 12 and will be supported by a 10-city tour. The sixth will follow in July 2017.

But there’s more. What began in 2012 as a two-book deal has now grown into a nine-book (and counting), multi-format series, in which siblings Alex and Connor tumble into the land of fairy tales, which is a far cry from the setting described in their storybook. The books have been translated into 19 languages, with more than two million copies sold in the U.S. alone.

In October, Little, Brown will release a companion, The Land of Stories: A Treasury of Classic Fairy Tales, which will contain 30 full-color illustrations by Brandon Dorman, who also did the artwork for Colfer’s novels and picture book The Curvy Tree. The deluxe gift book will contain a collection of 24 fairy tales, designed to replicate the Fairy-Tale Treasury book that started Colfer’s main characters, Alex and Conner, on their adventures in the first book. Additionally, The Mother Goose Diaries and Queen Red Riding Hood’s Guide to Royalty, which were first published in a boxed set in 2015, will be available individually for the first time in July 2017.

It’s pretty impressive for the 26-year-old California native, who loved having stories read to him as a child, but had trouble reading himself. “It’s never been diagnosed but dyslexia runs in my family, so that might have been part of it. But also, I write pretty hysterical e-mails that are missing like 15 words. It might be some kind of actual disorder but I prefer to think of it as having my own special language,” Colfer said.

He fell in love with fairytales listening to his mother read them aloud. He could not get enough. “I would ask her all kinds of questions about the characters and their motives. I wanted the back story,” Colfer recalls. “And my mom wouldn’t have the answers. Finally she said, ‘Why don’t you write your own fairy tales?’ ”

Colfer did try – the series opener, The Wishing Spell, is dedicated to his grandmother, whom he calls his first editor and who told him, “Christopher, I think you should wait until you finish elementary school before worrying about being a failed writer.” It was during those elementary school years that Colfer was often expected to entertain himself because his younger sister had a “very rare and awful form of epilepsy” that required the majority of his parents’ attention. “Writing or even just thinking up stories was wonderful therapy for me, then and now,” Colfer said. “Whenever I am overwhelmed or sad or mad, I retreat to writing. This series has been an escape for me.”
