Wattpad adds a publishing arm


Wattpad has announced that it will form a publishing division, called Wattpad Books.

The company’s chief executive and co-founder says Wattpad Books will combine data analysis with the judgment of human editors to determine which user-uploaded stories could see broader commercial success.

Already, six young-adult books have been set for release this fall; you can check them out on Wattpad Books’s website and learn more about the publishing imprint in the New York Times.
