Looks like One Direction heading the same direction as E. L James’ Fifty Shades of Grey.
Because according to Sugarscape, the band will be the subject of a fan fiction novel that’s going to be print from Penguin Press!
Realizing that the story would be perfect for the publishing house Penguin Press’ Senior Fiction Editor Lindsay Heaven spotted 16-year-old Emily Baker’s 1D fan fiction called, ’Loving the Band’ on movellas.com.
“Penguin had been looking to commission a writer to pen a romantic Y.A. fictional novel that tapped into the current obsession with boy bands,” said the publishing house in a statement.
“Emily proved to be just the right kind of new talent to write such a novel with powerful emotion and authority and world rights were duly acquired from movellas.com.”
Heaven’s story, which features two members of One Direction falling in love with her, has reached over 30,000 hits. Set to be released in ebook on November 1st, I can only imagine how the band must feel about this story.
