My name is Abigail Gibbs, I’m 19 years-old and I have multiple identities! Yay!

I am both an author and a student, reading English literature at the University of Oxford. My first novel, The Dark Heroine: Dinner With A Vampire, is available from most online retailers and in good book stores, whilst the sequel, Autumn Rose, is out January 2014 – see below for links. 

If you’re new to the world of the Dark Heroines, then take a look at the twenty chapter sample (first draft so excuse the spelling mistakes) available here on Wattpad, or check out the sample to TDH 2, Autumn Rose. 

Writing Facts:

* I started writing The Dark Heroine under the name Dinner With A Vampire. Did I Mention I’m Vegetarian in 2009, posting it on Wattpad.
* It gained an astounding seventeen million reads! 
* I was discovered by my agent on Wattpad, and now The Dark Heroine is published by the good people at HarperCollins.

Hi Abigail, 
I love your book. its kasparsome!! :) I started reading the book smwhere during 2009/2010 and I still remember waiting eagerly and being totured waiting for the updates! I made people get wattpad JUST to read the story
 I remember telling my mom....this STORY and its author will b the next big thing. I loved and lived your book...literally. When I got to know tat finally chapter 61 got uploaded and tat ur book was coming out too...I was so glad that you got what you deserved but was a tad sad that I'd have to wait some more to know wat wld happen next. During the long wait, I think I read the book on wattpad atleast 20 times again and again!! wen the book got released...I jumped straight to the part u updated last and continued from there and  was so relieved and glad to finally know wat happens next. 
A Month later, I decided to read the book AGAIN in paperback, right from the beginning. BUT I was so DISSAPOINTED...my fav scenes were all cut out! violets birthday party scene....then those small intetaction of hers between kaspars brothers..between the other characters too...were ALL MISSING!!!!! And tat kinda changed the entire perspective on many of the characters completely!!!! I felt soo horrible. Then i decided tat id print out ur ORIGINAL from wattpad and keep it with me so tat I always have ur original story to read always but it had been removed nd then changed alreaady here too. I found out your facebook page and wrote a long msg to you as well beseeching you..to somehow...make tat copy of wat u first wrote available to me but I got no response. It feels like I watched a movie rather than read ur book cz my imagination has etched every scene in the boom so vividly tat any change irkes me so :( 
im so sorry. I love u as ur biggest ever fan possible but the published book has a slightly changed style plus many parts have been omitted from the original. 
can u plz plz plz plz smhw make the first cipy of wattpad updates of the story available????

Hi, I just wanted to say that "Dinner with a vampire" was the first book that I've ever read for pleasure. since that day I've learned to love reading. That book is the best one I've read on wattpad, after that I couldn't find a book so good on the app so I stopped using it. I saw one of my friends reading on wattpad the other day and I recommended this book to her, a week after that she came to me and told me that she loved it but couldn't finish it because it was incomplete. She also told me that it was incomplete because it was getting published. I got sooooo happy, I'm so glad you got this amazing story published. You're an incredible writer and I can't wait to have this story on my hands as an actual book. Thank you for being so awesome. God bless.

If you've ever read The Cross Fire series by Maya Banks or Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James and enjoyed them, then I urge you to check out my in progress novel ROYAL PAINS - a darkened and slightly twisted version of everyone's favorite fairytale Beauty and the Beast.

I'm hoping to finish and have it published within the next six months.

Emmaline Lefevre, a college student at the prestigious Ludivine - a college for talented photographers, falls victim to her wealthy socialite mothers' twisted ways and finds herself trapped in an abusive and controlling arranged marriage to the Prince of Linacre - a country known for it’s nineteenth century culture.
