In November 2013, I started writing my novel, Summoner: The Novice on Wattpad. I reached 1 Million reads within 4 months and was featured on NBC news. I was offered representation by 6 agents and my trilogy was eventually sold in auctions all over the world. It will be translated into 11 languages and was published in May, 2015.

One year later, Summoner: The Novice had over 5.5 Million reads.

If you have ever wondered how it happened, look no further. This story details my journey from an amateur Wattpad writer to an internationally published author.

*** the SUMMONER trilogy will be published in May 2015 by Hodder Children's (Hachette) in the UK, Australia and Commonwealth, Feiwel and Friends (Macmillan) in the US and Canada, Hachette Jeunesse in France, Heyne in Germany, Planeta in Spain, Crown in Taiwan and Record in Brazil. Book 1 will be published by EKSMO in Russia, Jaguar in Poland, Ecliptic in Bulgaria and Alpress in the Czech Republic.***
