Jodi Sweetin, who played middle daughter Stephanie Tanner on Full House from 1987 until 1995, has signed on to write a book for Simon Spotlight, Simon & Schuster’s pop culture imprint, about the years she spent addicted to and recovering from drugs. According to the description that just ran on the Publishers’ Marketplace deal-wire, literary agent Kirby Kim at Endeavor sold Ms. Sweetin’s book at auction for a sum in the six figures.
If anyone can make Ms. Sweetin’s book a hit, it’s Simon Spotlight, a team that has come closer than anyone else in town to inheriting the throne of Judith Regan, having racked up several massive best sellers this year, including a memoir by Tori Spelling and Chelsea Handler’s Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.
