Ready for a crazy ride? This week’s #WattpadWednesday post features author Adrian Birch or is it Bailey Simms … we may never know. This author has weaved together a creative tale unlike anything you’ve ever read before! Today Dead in Bed sits at #1 on the Horror list at Wattpad, an online writing community in which users are able to read and post articles, stories, fan fiction, and poems for free, either through the website or on the mobile app. This story has accumulated well over two million reads, and that number continues to grow every day. And it’s no wonder why. It’s basically a story within a story, but if I try to describe it I’ll never be able to do it justice. Instead, I’ll just leave you with the author’s bio and a short story blurb, then it will be up to you to see what all the rage is about!
Adrian Birch is the author of Dead in Bed By Bailey Simms, a popular meta-thriller that’s been #1 in Wattpad’s horror rankings more times than anyone can count. Part of Adrian’s novel follows Ashley Young as she tries to survive the outbreak of a sexually-transmitted plague that stimulates people’s libidos before killing them. Another part of the novel follows Bailey Simms, the fictional teen author of Dead in Bed who’s stuck at home with a rare medical condition and a strict father who has no idea that his daughter is secretly a famous author. But as far as Adrian Birch’s own background goes, no one really knows anything about who she or he is. Some people have speculated that Adrian Birch is just Bailey Simms’s pen name, and that Bailey’s story isn’t fictional at all. Others have guessed that Adrian Birch is Bailey’s boyfriend, the older boy named “Kyle” in the story. More ominous speculation has even suggested that Adrian Birch has kidnapped Bailey Simms and is taking credit for her work! But whoever Adrian Birch really is, people are counting on answers before the saga of Dead in Bed By Bailey Simms concludes.
You can connect with this author on their website (where you will have access to exclusive, uncensored material), Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Goodreads and of course on Wattpad as well.
Dead in Bed Story Blurb:
You’ve never, ever read a book like this.
When a sexually-transmitted plague breaks out in Ashley Young’s small town, leaving its victims with a bizarrely amplified libido, everything about her life changes. DEAD IN BED is partly a suspense thriller with a strikingly unique story, partly a page-turning mystery about a disease that makes people hopelessly crave sexual contact, and partly a neo-western adventure in the American heartland. For readers who can handle a smart, controversial female protagonist who’s willing to do anything—no matter how difficult or morally questionable—in order to survive, the series pulls them in like an unshakeable addiction.
. . . Bailey Simms, teen author of DEAD IN BED, is stuck at home with a rare medical condition. Writing is her only escape, so she’s determined to keep her salacious series hidden from her strict father. Soon an older boy starts to secretly help her, and Bailey finds new opportunities for freedom that she’s never had. But as DEAD IN BED grows in popularity, and Bailey’s fans start to clamor for the sequel, she learns that being a successful Wattpad author may come with a terrifyingly dangerous price.
