I’M BRITT THE BOOK SLAYER
Hey fellow Wattpadders! My name is Brittany Geragotelis, AKA Britt the Book Slayer, and I’m an author who got her start right here on Wattpad! A little bit about me: I always had dreams of becoming an author. But after nine years of rejection from the publishing world, I almost gave up on that dream.
Luckily, I found Wattpad and decided to write an original novel called Life’s a Witch for all of you to read. This ended up changing my life, because after getting 18 million reads of the book, I ended up scoring a book deal with Simon & Schuster. My first published novel, What the Spell, launched in January and the new and improved version of Life’s a Witch just came out in bookstores everywhere!
I believe we can change the world through storytelling. Books have definitely done that for me. And I want to continue to entertain you all with mine. So, this campaign will raise money to create, release and promote my next writing project, Ki$$ & $ell!
A person’s first kiss can be a big deal. I, myself, received my first kiss in 3rd grade, behind a Port-A-Potty at school. We were dared to do it, and it was just a peck. Not exactly the stuff of fairytales, yet it was a HUGE deal for me. And I think no matter the circumstances surrounding it, your first kiss is something you’ll remember forever.
But you have to get that kiss first.
Ki$$ & $ell is a book about Arielle Sawyer, a 14-year-old who realizes she’s the last person in her class to be kissed. Frustrated by her kissably-challenged lifestyle, Arielle allows herself to be talked into selling her first kiss to the highest bidder—on eBay. After she and her BFFs publish her post, the media catches wind of her story and pretty soon she’s giving interviews and appearing on popular late-night talk shows. Due to her newfound fame, the former wallflower suddenly finds herself the focus of everyone’s attention, including that of the most popular guy at school, an actor who just happens to be the teen heartthrob of the moment and even the local bad boy. But as her popularity grows and her friendships begin to weaken, Arielle starts to wonder why she put up the post in the first place. In the end there will be a winner, but will Arielle’s first kiss end up being everything she’s ever dreamed of?
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
Your pledges will help Arielle get her first kiss! Well, sort of. What you as a supporter are actually doing, is making sure that this book actually gets published here on Wattpad (and maybe even beyond). By helping to fund this project, you’ll be ensuring this story gets told. But more specifically, your money will go toward the writing of this book, creating an awesome book cover, marketing and publicity, as well as publishing a print version.
Once we’ve hit our fan funding goal, I’ll be able to get posting right away! The plan is to have a few chapters for you the SATURDAY after the last day of fan funding and then a new chapter every Saturday after that! That means the full-length novel will be available to all my funders by the end of January 2014!
The cool thing about this campaign is that you have all the power. We don’t always have a say in what happens in our lives. We don’t get to choose whether we go to school or not. Or which movies hit the big screen. We often don’t even get a say in what we eat for dinner. But this is your chance to enact your power. Because the truth is: it’s up to you to make this book happen.
My fans here on Wattpad changed my life once before, and I know you can do it again. If you like my books and want to read more, then show your support. You have a chance to do something epic here. Be a part of something bigger than yourselves. Make sure this story is told. I hope you’ll use your power.
Above all else…I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the support you’ve given me over the years. Your kind words and love for my writing is the reason I get to do what I love. You are all my personal heroes.
About fan funding
Fan funding is an experiment on Wattpad that allows readers to support their favorite writers in new ways. The experiment will run with a small group of Wattpad writers, where the writers pitch their story projects and fans like you can directly support the project through monetary pledges, in exchange for awesome exclusive rewards.
Help support your favorite writer bring a story you’ve always wanted to see to life! Keep in mind that the raw unedited version of each story will still be made available on Wattpad, as offering free content will always be one of our core values. Find out more about Fan Funding.
