Looks like being a One Direction fan has paid off for one lucky teen, as 16 year-old Emily Baker's fan fiction about the band is set to be hit the shelves, after landing a deal with publisher Penguin.
The teenager's story 'Loving The Band' has proved so popular on online youth writing site Moveallas that publishers have snapped it up and are getting ready to début the electronic format in November, once some names have been changed for copywright reasons of course.
The story tells of a teenage girl who becomes embroiled in a love triangle with two boybanders who both fall for her, surely the stuff of Directioner dreams?
Editor Lindsey Heaven said, according to Entertainment Weekly: “We at Penguin’s Children’s are delighted to be publishing ‘Loving the Band'.
“Emily’s novel is fresh, romantic, current and completely taps into today’s pop culture.”
She adds: “Her love of a certain boy band is heartfelt and her passion feeds into every bit of her writing.”
Speaking of her writing triumph at just 16, the British teen told the Daily Mail in an interview: “It’s about a girl who lives in Scotland and comes down to London to visit her best friend.
“When she gets there she bumps into a boy band and hangs out with them, and eventually she finds out two of them — Shaq and Reily — have fallen for her.”
Her story has already had 300,000 hits online, so be prepared for a stamped from Directioners when it becomes available.
Emily could be the next E.L. James who's 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' trilogy began life as 'Twilight' fan fiction and has now sold more than 40 million copies around the world.
