Online writing community Wattpad is teaming up with Diversion Books, the e-publishing platform launched by literary agent Scott Waxman, to host a book club focused on Diversion author Mia Thompson’s thriller Stalking Sapphire, published earlier this year. The Book Club will run for seven weeks starting September 6 and will also offer an exclusive look at Silencing Sapphire, a sequel set to be released October 22.
The Wattpad/Diversion Books book club will offer discussion on Mia Thompson’s Stalking Sapphire, the story of a Beverly Hills heiress who hunts serial killers, as well as a chance to interact with Thompson. To promote the forthcoming sequel, Silencing Sapphire, Thompson will host a Google Hangout on October 22. The books are categorized as “New Adult” a trendy new genre that generally means adding more adult content to Young Adult material.
Angela Craft, marketing and publicity manager for Diversion Books, said “Wattpad’s method of serializing novels, combined with their highly engaged and passionate user base, makes it an ideal setting for a virtual book club. We’re excited to help Mia use this opportunity to meet new fans and readers where they are already searching for great books to read.”
