Twilight Fan Fiction History of Gabriel’s Inferno

Indie romance novelist Sylvain Reynard has landed a “substantial seven-figure deal” with Penguin Group’s Berkley imprint for Gabriel’s Inferno and Gabriel’s Rapture, a series that began as Twilight fan fiction.

This book was born as a serialized Twilight fan fiction story called The University of Edward Masen (abbreviated as UOEM by readers) written under the pen name Sebastien Robichaud. The original manuscript has been removed and the site for Robichaud has been deleted.

Using the Wayback Machine and other tools, we were able to take snapshots from Reynard’s old work under that pseudonym–archiving the book’s fan fiction history (like we did for E. L. James and Fifty Shades of Grey). We’ve included excerpts from the notes below, click on the individual links to explore the pages for yourself. Read more

The book began as Twilight fan fiction, telling the story of “a sinful exploration of sex, love, and redemption” between a Dante scholar and his graduate student. Reynard had published with Omnific Publishing, a publisher “nurturing talented amateur writers into professional published authors.”

Knight Agency president Deidre Knight and co-agent Melissa Jeglinski represented Omnific Publishing in the deal with senior editor Cindy Hwang. Berkley will print 500,000 trade paperback copies of each book.
