After by Anna Todd

After by Anna Todd cover


Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She’s got direction, ambition, and a mother who’s intent on keeping her that way. But she’s barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is cute and different from what she’s used to.
But he’s also rude – to the point of cruelty, even. For all his attitude, Tessashould hate Hardin and she does — until she finds herself alone with him in his room. Something about his dark mood grabs her, and when they kiss it ignites within her a passion she’s never known before.

He’ll call her beautiful, then insist he isn’t the one for her and disappear again and again. Despite the reckless way he treats her, Tessa is compelled to dig deeper and find the real Hardin beneath all his lies. He pushes her away again and again, yet every time she pushes back, he only pulls her in deeper.

Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin’s prejudice about nice girls like her?

Unless… could this be love?

NEW YORK, May 27, 2014—Gallery Books will publish the Wattpad phenomenon After as a New Adult series, in both e-book and print editions, it was announced today by Jennifer Bergstrom, Publisher of Gallery Books.   Originally serialized on Wattpad, the world’s largest community of readers and writers, the first book in the After series is scheduled to publish in Fall 2014; the second and third books will be published in early 2015.


After, written by Anna Todd, is one of the most talked about stories on the internet and has become an online phenomenon with more than 800 million reads of the three-part Wattpad series.   Written serially with daily updates to meet reader demand, After became Wattpad’s most shared story of 2013.   In addition to the massive popularity of After on Wattpad, the story regularly trends on other social networks, including Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.   The success also caught the attention of United Talent Agency, which is now handling the film and television representation of After.  The original fanfiction will remain on Wattpad.


“Anna used Wattpad’s mobile and social storytelling features to captivate millions of readers with After,” said Bergstrom.  “We are thrilled to be able to reach an even broader audience in book form.”


“Partnering with innovative publishers like Gallery Books gives Wattpad writers the ability to share their stories in new formats and attract additional readers around the world,” said Wattpad’s Head of Content, Publishing, Ashleigh Gardner.
