Stormzy’s #Merky Books is to publish author Malorie Blackman’s upcoming autobiography.

The rapper launched his own publishing imprint, a collaboration with Penguin Random House, last year.

It has now been announced that it will be publishing Blackman’s book in 2022.

She said: “I’m joining the #Merky Books family… yay!

“In 2022 they will be publishing my autobiography but it will be an autobiography with a difference.

“For aspiring writers, it will also contain all the writer’s tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years.”

Blackman is the author of the Noughts And Crosses books, which are set in an alternative 21st century Britain where black people rule over white people.

Stormzy is set to appear in a BBC television adaptation of the story.
