If you’re a fan of Wattpad, then you have probably heard of Love Scene Take Two (formerly Between Takes) by Alex Evansley, and Arrowheart (formerly The Love Curse) by Rebecca Sky. Two uber popular stories that launched their authors into the orange stratosphere with their relatable, humor laden and original concepts on the forum.
Well, this week has been a pretty big one for Wattpad, Sky and Evansley as their stories have hit the shelves all over the world. For Evansley, her story has been published by Swoon Reads after being chosen by readers on the site to gain editor attention. For Sky, she braved the query trenches and came out on top, reaching a deal with Hodders Childrens Publishing.
Tuesday June 12 saw Love Scene Take Two find a place on the young adult shelves, and Evansley took us along for the ride via Instagram stories as she showed up at her local Barnes and Nobel to find out that her book was already sold out. It was emotional, but so exciting for everyone who has followed her journey from the start.
Thursday June 14 found Rebecca Sky taking over London, turning the town blue as she celebrated her release party, signed books at Foyles, and celebrated her milestone with fellow Wattpaders Gavin Hetherington, Bella Higgin, Beth Reekles (of The Kissing Booth fame) and more.
So more excited and happy for these incredible authors and their achievements, and check back soon for reviews of both books!
Congrats ladies! You deserve it!
