Wattpad Books, the publishing arm of Wattpad, has acquired world rights to two YA novels by Jessica Cunsolo and Nandi Taylor.
Cunsolo’s She’s With Me has already amassed more than 125 million reads on Wattpad, a user-generated story site, and is about a girl who gets swept up with the most infamous boy in school. Wattpad struck a deal for world rights with the author and the novel will be edited by Deanna McFadden.
Wattpad Books has also acquired world rights to Given, a fantasy about a young warrior’s sacred journey, by Taylor, who also posts stories on Wattpad. The company acquired world rights from agent Marisa A Corvisiero of the Corvisiero Literary Agency.
Both books will be published in winter 2020.
