Blogger Kelly Oxford Gets Book Deal

Kelly Oxford

Kelly Oxford is quite the blogging success stories. Her Tumblr has had more than two million hits in the last nine months and she has over 100,000 Twitter followers. Now GalleyCat reports that she has signed book deal with It Books and HarperCollins Canada, both of which are HarperCollins imprints. The book will be “A series of side-splitting essays.”

From the release about the book deals:

“Oxford is a wife and mother of three who lives in Calgary. A blogger since the 1990s, she has a wide and growing following on Twitter . In March 2010, she performed alongside Ben Stiller, Ashton Kutcher, Will Ferrell, and other celebrities in A Night of 140 Tweets, a fundraising event for Haitian earthquake relief in LA, which brought together the biggest names on Twitter.”

Oxford also sold an autobiographical sitcom, The Mother of All Something, to CBS Studios in February. Like her blog, the show will focus on her life as a wife and mother.

Are there any other bloggers out there you’d like to see get book deals?
