Wattpad Partners With Chooseco


eBook community Wattpad has partnered with Choose Your Own Adventure publisher Chooseco for a new digital endeavor. Fabulous Terrible: The Adventures of You by Sophie Talbot -a 2008 print novel aimed at teenage girls- is the first digital release that will come out of the partnership.

In September, Wattpad will host an interactive event to introduce the Fabulous Terrible series to the Wattpad community. Writers on Wattpad will be invited to contribute concepts and story outlines for a sequel to “Fabulous Terrible: The Adventure of You: Chloe.” Chooseco editors will choose three story concepts and the most popular idea will be developed shaped into a book proposal that Chooseco will consider for publication.

This is a popular time to “choose your own adventure” digitally. Last week, a Swedish company called Uventures brought the classic Choose Your Own Adventure novel series to the app world.
