Brace yourself, girls. If your mind has ever wandered to daydreams involving you, Harry Styles and a can of whipped cream, and you DIDN’T put pen to paper, then you really missed a trick.
One devoted Directioner once took the time to put her risqué thoughts on free writing website, Wattpad, and what did this effort eventually net her? A whopping six figure book deal, that’s what!
Now, let’s clear something up. No, there will not be a saucy book involving the real Harry and the lads on the shelves in time for Christmas, but Anna Todd who began her career penning One D fan-fiction obviously found her niche very early in life. Anna decided to use Harry Styles as inspiration for the lead character, Hardin Scott, in her first novel After and she celebrated its publication this week. It’s not going to be Anna’s last book either, with subsequent titles to follow in the coming months.
It doesn’t stop there either. Paramount Pictures have acquired the right to the After series and it looks like we’ll be in for a real steam-fest if Anna’s comments are anything to go by. Calling it a vanilla version of Fifty Shades of Grey, Anna tells us: “The regular sex scenes are very detailed.”
