'A Million Little Pieces' author Frey has multibook, multimedia deal for young-adult series

NEW YORK, N.Y. - James Frey has only begun to write.

The author of the discredited memoir "A Million Little Pieces" has a multibook, multimedia deal with HarperCollins for a young-adult series called "Endgame."

The publisher announced Wednesday that Frey's production company, Full Fathom Five, will turn out three novels and nine novellas. The project also includes YouTube videos, gaming designed by Google's Niantic Labs and social media. Twentieth Century Fox has acquired film rights.

The first book will be "Endgame: The Calling." It is due out in October and will be co-authored by Nils Johnson-Shelton.

The basic "Endgame" plot is a fight to the death among teens from rival bloodlines. It's being criticized by online commentators as too similar to Suzanne Collins' "The Hunger Games."

Frey acknowledged on Oprah Winfrey's show in 2006 he lied in "A Million Little Pieces."
