Sarah Ferguson has announced that she has signed a seven-book deal to write children’s stories, with her future son-in-law Edo Mapelli Mozzi as one of the first to congratulate her on the project.
Sarah, often known as “Fergie,” 60, said she was “so excited” about the news when she revealed three of her upcoming children’s books about Instagram.
The Duchess of York, who has written more than 25 books over the years, revealed the stories of children earlier today, including one titled “The Enchanted Oak Tree” and another named “Genie Gems.”
After posting the covers on her Instagram, friends and family congratulated the Duchess, including Princess Beatrice, 31, fiancee Edo, who commented on the post with three yellow heart emojis.
Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson, 60, has unveiled three new children’s books online because she was revealed to have signed a seven-book deal with Australian publisher Serenity Press
The seven books of the royal will consist of five picture books and two young chapter books, the first of which will be available in mid-2020.
Post on Instagram, the duchess wrote: “So excited about my 3 new children’s books Arthur Fantastic, Genie Gems and The Enchanted Oak Tree … coming soon.”
The three book series include the “Genie Gems, Mission to Devon” and “The Enchanted Oak Tree.”
The last book in the series is ‘Genie Gems meets Arthur Fantastic’, which seems to be a cross with one of Ferger’s earlier books with co-author Dr. Olivia Audrey.

One of the first responses to the message was Princess Beatrice’s fiancé, Edo Mapelli Mozzi, as well as his friend Holly Branson
The works are published in Australia and New Zealand.
The royal is already the author of more than 25 books, including the Budgie the Little Helicopter and the Little Red series.
Friends and family responded quickly to Fergy’s announcement, including Edo and former friend Lizzie Cundy of Meghan Markle.
In the meantime, Holly Branson, Princess Beatrice’s close friend and princess, responded to the message and wrote: “I can’t wait to read it. That front is great! ”

Karen McDermott, publisher of Serenity Press, described the stories of the duchess as ‘nourishing stories’.
She said: “We are pleased to welcome the duchess in our press.”
‘Her beautiful books are aligned with our core value of sharing nurturing stories that empower young minds.
“We can’t wait to put these books in the hands of the readers.”
The royal also revealed covers and titles for two other books in her series, including ‘Genie Gems’ and ‘Genie Gems meets Arthur Fantastic’, a nod to another royal children’s book
The latest business venture from Fergie comes weeks after she released her products including towels, soap, and teacups based on photos she had taken.
The products are labeled as The Duchess Collection and are delivered in an orange package with a logo with two rearing winged horses that is reminiscent of the colors of the Hermes brand.
It hopes to combine “glamor” with “compassion” and includes a collection of towels, soap and tea.
The slogan for her brand is: “Entertainment, Edutainment and Lifestyle.”

The Duchess has already pitched the idea to a select number of super-rich potential investors with dreams of raising £ 10 million to fund it.
There is also a series of ready-to-eat meals called “Fergie’s Farm,” which is expected to be launched later this year.
It remains to be seen whether the Duchess, who has gone through a blocked business history since her divorce from Prince Andrew in 1996 – reportedly ending up with debts of £ 5 million – will make the company a success.
