(Nashville, Tenn.) April 3, 2023 – Bestselling author, speaker, and podcaster Carlos Whittaker has signed a two-book deal with Nelson Books, an imprint of Thomas Nelson. The first book will focus on creating sustainable, meaningful rhythms of life in an age of distraction and a seemingly infinite stream of content choices. With Whittaker’s distinct energy, compassion, and heartfelt care for his readers, Whittaker will share the lessons he learned by living off the grid and the brain science that shapes his own habits of health and wholeness.
Whitaker’s first book of the deal is slated to release in the fall of 2024 and will be based on an experiment the social media guru conducted on himself and what he learned as a result. The subsequent project timeline has not yet been released, though expected to fall into the 2025 calendar year.
“Carlos Whittaker is creative, compassionate, and culturally influential. We are confident that these materials will inform and inspire countless readers looking to navigate the rhythms of work, family, community, and how all these areas of life share complex intersections with technology and public discourse,” said Publisher Andrew Stoddard. “We are thrilled to welcome Carlos to Nelson Books and are enthusiastically preparing to bring these publications to market.”
“I am honored to be working with Nelson Books, continuing to do what I love, helping people! I can’t wait to share what I have learned this past year in my own created experiment,” said Whittaker.
Alex Field of The Bindery Agency negotiated the book deal.
