The band who finished fourth in last year's X Factor have signed a book deal to create their memoirs, before their first single has been released.
Union J was formed in 2012 after both individual artist George Shelly and group Triple J were rejected from the competition and reworked as a band.
Their first single is due to be released this June through RCA records.
The artists were formed by judge Louis Walsh and their popularity grew with a large following on Twitter.
Writer Daniel Bunyard said: "I'm over the moon to be working with Union J on their first book. They have huge talent, a great chemistry together and a genuine passion towards what they're doing."
They have been described as the next One Direction.
