Grier's book will explore his pre-fame life in North Carolina.

Vine star Nash Grier conquered the Internet, and now he’s aiming for dominance in the print world, too, writing a book to be published later this year.

The book, which is still untitled, will "uncover what life was like growing up in North Carolina pre-fame, finding his calling as a creator, the love he has for his family, what Hollywood has changed about him (nothing), and what his fans mean to him (everything)," according to a press release.

Gallery Books, part of Simon & Schuster, will publish the title on Sept. 13.

Grier is far from the first Web celebrity to jump on the book trend. Fellow stars like Grace Helbig and Shane Dawson have written non-fiction work recently. Networks like AwesomenessTV and StyleHaul have launched their own book divisions, and established publisher HarperCollins has launched a new imprint, called HarperLegend, for these books.

Grier has also faced backlash for his social media presence after vining and tweeting homophobic and misogynistic content. Grier told the Daily Dot in December that he no longer held those attitudes. He recently relaunched his YouTube channel and has a five-episode scripted comedy, Confessions of a Teenage Cupid, debuting in June.

Nash Grier to relaunch YouTube channel with 5-episode scripted comedy
BY GEOFF WEISS In a nine-minute-long sketch last month, Nash Grier announced he was relaunching his YouTube channel. “After a lot of soul-searching,” he said in the clip, which alluded to a new creative direction and more polished approach, “I want to tell stories that exploit the truth — that use the highest quality cinematic filmmaking … I want comedy, I want action, I want thrill, I want drama, fantasy, romance — I want a damn silent film. I want it all.”
