NEW YORK —

A new shade of grey? A sexy, self-published romance novel that has sold hundreds of thousands of copies has been acquired by an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

Atria Books announced Tuesday that it had signed up Jamie McGuire's "Beautiful Disaster," to be released immediately as an e-book. A paperback will follow in August.

The story of a young woman trying to choose between two men is currently No. 106 on Amazon.com's best-seller list and has received more than 1,000 customer reviews.

McGuire's literary agency, Valarie Hoskins Associates, also represents "Fifty Shades of Grey" author E.L. James.

"Walking Disaster," a sequel to "Beautiful Disaster," is scheduled to be published by Atria next year.
