Shonda Rhimes Inks Book Deal

By Dianna Dilworth 

Television executive Shonda Rhimes, known for creating the television shows Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and Private Practice, has inked a book deal with Simon & Schuster.

The Year of Yes, which comes out in November, tells the story of the year in which Rhimes decided to say yes to every invitation that she received.

“Saying yes for an entire year turned out to be one of the most amazing decisions I have ever made,” Rhimes said in a statement. “It was also a little insane, a lot terrifying and sometimes wildly embarrassing.  So this is not a story I ever planned to share with anyone. However, once Simon & Schuster asked me, I had no choice — what else could I say but yes?”
