Despite the fact that she’s just a fictional character on CW’s rom-com “Jane the Virgin,” Jane Gloriana Villanueva is a published author on the show and in real life.

Her debut historical romance, “Snow Falling,” was unveiled in the Nov. 10 episode of “Jane the Virgin” and then hit actual bookstores across America.

Other fictional books that became real

Meta as Jane’s novel is, books jumping out of popular TV shows, movies and other books are nothing new. These titles all emerged from the Harry Potter universe:

  • “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”
  • “Quidditch Through the Ages”
  • “The Tales of Beedle the Bard”

About ‘Snow Falling’

On the show, viewers saw Jane — a Latina virgin who works in a Miami hotel — pursuing an MFA and writing a novel called “Snow Falling” in her spare time.

Variety reports that Simon & Schuster approached its fellow CBS subsidiary the CW about making Jane’s book a reality. To pull off that bit of publishing trompe-l’œil, Simon & Schuster imprint Adams Media renamed itself Lorden + Gregor, the fictional publishing house that buys Jane’s novel in Season 3.

“Snow Falling” essentially moves the basic plot of “Jane the Virgin” to the early 20th century.

So, fans of the TV show shouldn’t look for new thrills and plot twists in “Snow Falling,” but it might be just the thing for a cold winter’s night between episodes.
