Jane the Virgin‘stitle character played by Gina Rodriguez is finally fulfilling her literary ambitions…for real. In October, book publisher Simon & Schuster announced that its imprint Adams Media would be publishing fictional character Jane Gloriana Villanueva’s debut novel, a historical romance, on Nov. 14.
Over the course of the show’s first three seasons, Jane dreams of becoming a novelist, and takes a crack at one based on her relationship with Michael Cordero, Jr., played by Brett Dier.
The novel, titled Snow Falling, takes place in Miami in 1902, a time when the Magic City was expanding, railroad magnates thrived and hotels proliferated and prospered. Bestselling romance writer, Caridad Pineiro is the real author of Snow Falling, but the book is attributed to Jane Gloriana Villanueva on its cover and bio.
