DeVos' dystopia attracts three 'significant' five-figure pre-empts

Orion Fiction has sold international rights to WattPad author Megan DeVos’ dystopian novel, Anarchy, in three "significant" five-figure pre-empts, and a further two territories across Europe.

The series envisages a future where rival factions have taken over, fighting each other for survival. The series follows Hayden and Grace - "born to be bitter enemies, but a chance encounter forces them to unite".

Following Orion's acquisition of world rights in April, rights were pre-empted in Italy (Mondadori), France (Lattes) and Russia (Atticus-Azbooka) and sold in Portugal (ASA) and Serbia (Vulkan). 

According to Orion, DeVos's novels already have had over 30 million readers worldwide on Wattpad and there is a film deal in the works.

DeVos, 26, said: "I couldn't be more thrilled that my books are going global and can reach more readers than ever. It's a dream come true to know my work will be published in so many wonderful places around the world."

All four e-books will be available in the UK from June with the paperback of Anarchy publishing in August.
