James Franco to Publish His First Novel
01/04/2012 AT 05:30 AM EST
Franco, 33, has sold his first novel, Actors Anonymous, loosely based on his life, to Amazon Publishing, the New York Observer reports.
The book was acquired by Amazon fiction editor Ed Park, a founding editor of The Believer, whose move to Amazon in September caused a buzz in literary circles.
While this is Franco's first novel, it's not his first work of fiction. He released a book of short stories, Palo Alto, back in June, published by Scribner.
