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.
