On the heels of the recent release of Rachel Renée Russell’s Dork Diaries 3: Tales from a Not-So-Talented Pop Star, Simon & Schuster’s Aladdin imprint has announced details about the publication of the fifth and sixth books in the series in summer 2013 and 2014. The deal was negotiated between deputy publisher Mara Anastas and agent Daniel Lazar of Writers House; executive editor Liesa Abrams will edit.

In October, Aladdin will publish Dork Diaries 3 1/2: How to Dork Your Diary, which follows protagonist Nikki’s travails after she loses her diary. There are currently 3.3 million copies of the books in the series in print.
