‘After’ is perhaps one of the most popular One Direction fan fiction stories on the Internet right now and soon, the online version will be published as a three novel series. The first novel will hit ebooks and stores in November, while the second and third books will be released in January and March of 2015.

Publishers Weekly reports that publisher Simon & Schusters’ Gallery Books acquired the rights from Wattpad, an online community for young aspiring writers.

Anna Todd, a 25-year-old fan of One Direction from Texas, began writing ‘After’ over a year ago and has amassed 800 million reads on Wattpad. The deal is reportedly worth six figures. A film based on the books is being planned as well.

Wattpad describes the story’s plot as follows: “Tessa Young is an 18-year-old college student with a simple life, excellent grades and a sweet boyfriend. She always has things planned out ahead of time, until she meets a rude boy named Harry, with too many tattoos and piercings who shatters her plans.”

Harry in the story, of course, is an alternate version of Harry Styles.

For the mass release of the ‘After’ story, Simon & Schusters revealed that the online stories will be edited down. The entire, unabridged versions will continue to be available on Wattpad.
