Self-published star Colleen Hoover has signed with Atria Books for her latest best-seller, “Hopeless.”

Hoover's agent, Jane Dystel, said Atria will publish the print version of “Hopeless,” while the author will continue to control the electronic version. Last week, Hoover's erotic romance was ranked No. 2 on's list of top-selling e-books.

Hoover's “Slammed” and “Point of Retreat” also were originally self-published, then acquired by Atria, a Simon & Schuster imprint.
