Derek Jeter is getting into the book publishing business.
Jeter, whose book, "The Captain," by Ian O'Connor, was released in May 2011, has partnered with Simon & Schuster to identify and publish adult nonfiction titles, children's picture books, middle-grade fiction and ready-to-read children's books.
"This publishing partnership with Simon & Schuster is an exciting way for me to discover and develop new books, sharing insights of my own or from people I believe have interesting stories, philosophies or practices to share," Jeter said in a news release.
The news release cites Jeter's world-renowned fame and success having allowed him to meet some of the world's most "interesting and diverse people, while establishing a brand synonymous with trust and credibility."
The publishing company is hoping Jeter helps identify stories that will "appeal to audiences ranging from children who look up to him as a role model to sports-savvy adults who have been witness to his remarkable career."
The partnership will be called "Jeter Publishing."
