Wattpad Wednesday Featuring Author A.V. Geiger

WWB

Hello and welcome to Wattpad Wednesday! This week’s story is by author A.V. Geiger (who goes by the nickname Viv) and is known as adam_and_jane on Wattpad. She is a Wattpad featured author and member of the Wattpad Stars program with over 40 thousand followers! Viv recently announced a book deal for her Twitter-based teen fiction story Follow Me Back after it was discovered by a literary agent in 2015. Described in Publisher’s Weekly as “a romantic thriller for the online generation”, the complete first draft of Follow Me Back is still available on Wattpad! The revised and expanded version will be published by Sourcebooks Fire YA in Summer 2017.

You can follow Viv on Wattpad and on Twitter, where she runs her personal account as well as the popular “Wattpad Obsessed” account @FollowBackBook. You can also visit her website www.avgeiger.com.

Follow Me Back story blurb:

Tessa Hart has a secret, but she’s too scared to tell a soul. She dropped out of school six months ago for reasons she doesn’t dare to speak aloud. Not to her mother. Not to her therapist. Not even to her brand new twitter BFF…  
 
Eric Thorn has a secret of his own – one that none of the girls would guess. He’s dreamed his whole life of making it in the music industry, but no one seems to understand the harsh realities of fame. Not his manager. Not his record label. And certainly not the fan girl he starts talking to on twitter late one night, for reasons he can’t explain…
 
Now Tessa follows Eric, and Eric follows Tessa. But this is no fan-fiction fantasy come to life. This is a story of fan accounts and fake profiles, where no one is exactly who they seem, and where a simple tap of the “Follow” button has the power to lead to love… Or to something far more sinister.

Wattpad Wednesday Featuring Gabriela Cabezut

 

WWB

ShyGabs, or Gabriela Cabezut as she’s known in the publishing world, joined Wattpad as a brand new writer back in 2011 and has since produced several stories. Her romance, Prince with Benefits, topped the Hot List at number 1 on numerous occasions and has racked up over 47 million reads! Because of that story, Gaby was contacted by several different publishers via Wattpad and she eventually signed with Summit Books, one of the largest publishing houses in the Philippines. Her second novel, Hopelessly Imperfect, will be released in May with Limitless Publishing then followed up with two additional novels to complete the series. Gaby’s most recent achievement came when she was invited to join the Wattpad Stars program. And here’s another fun fact about Gaby: English isn’t her primary language, but it’s the only language she writes in! Her current Wattpad work-in-process is called Take-out Chef. Click here to check out that story and more!

To learn more about Gaby, follow her on Goodreads, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter as well as on her Website (and don’t forget to sign up for her email list when you’re there)!

Take-out Chef Story Blurb:

She goes along with the plan in order to meet her life-long crush Tom, a TV chef who inspires her to love cooking. But Tom’s not alone. Bryan, his partner in crime, is as arrogant as he is handsome and Jessie is intrigued by his mysterious character. He spices up her life in unexpected ways.

Wattpad Wednesday Featuring Lindsey Lippincott

WWB

In an effort to bring more recognition to Wattpad writers, I’d like to begin a weekly post called Wattpad Wednesday, where I’ll feature stories from deserving authors from the site.

My first guinea pig…I mean, Wattpad author, I’d like to bring attention to is Brink1314, or Red Assassin as some readers call her. Her story The Huntress is currently being featured on Wattpad and has almost 5 million views! Brink’s real name is Lindsey Lippincott and she has over 30 thousand followers on the writing platform. She’s also a new member of the Wattpad Stars program! Click on Brink1314 to read her stories!

The Huntress Story Blurb:

Electra Jaeger is a dagger wielding, gun flashing huntress, hunting down the creatures of darkness. When it comes to the paranormal she’s not picky–werewolves, ghouls, vampires, witches. It’s all in a night’s work. The Jaeger children were brought into the life after their mother’s death at the hands of a werewolf, and it’s all they’ve known since. Now, Electra’s the only one who finds peace in the hunt. She hunts for her mother and herself, turning into a closed off, carefully guarded young woman. It’s the routine that works for her until one person changes it all. He’s new, he’s straight-forward, and oh so confident, and for some reason his sights are set on Electra. She never expected to fall for anyone, let alone someone who didn’t know about the paranormal world, but Jared’s closer to the subject than she thinks. Electra realizes that the world of the paranormal is more complex than she’d thought, and she’s forced to make a decision: to risk her life as well as the life of the man she loves, or to turn away and never look back. She must decide what she can live without. Who will she betray? Her family or herself? Find out in, The Huntress.
