Even more AWESOME!

Coming March 1, 2016

Okay, wow. I have SO much to update here!

Since I last posted, a ton of amazing things have happened. Like, dream come true things.

Here’s all the awesome:

1. Let’s start with the big BIG dream come true thing…

My geeky YA contemporary romance, WHAT HAPPENS AT SUPACON, was selected for publishing by Swoon Reads/Macmillan! It’s coming out in March 2017, and I’m so excited!

Right now we’re in the editing stage, and I’m so grateful to have such an amazing editor guiding me through the whole process and helping to make this story the best it can be.

2. My YA paranormal romance, ECHO OF THE WITCH, is being published by Limitless Publishing on March 1st, 2016! That’s so soon! And the next two books in the series will be publishing with Limitless, too.

I just did a big cover reveal for this book over at YA Books Central. Check it out here, and remember to enter the giveaway to WIN a signed copy of the paperback!

3. Tomorrow I’m joining the Wattpad4 for a live chat party on Twitter! Myself and six other awesome authors will be joining the Wattpad4 to talk about writing + new releases, plus we’ll be answering YOUR questions + I’ve even heard there’ll be giveaways!

4. Last month, Sony Pictures commissioned me to write an epic fanfic mixing Pride & Prejudice & Zombies with Anna Todd’s After series (with the permission and support of Anna herself, of course!) It’s currently sitting pretty at 150K+ reads. Check it out here.

5. Speaking of awesome Wattpad things, my post for the Wattpad Block Party – Winter Edition went live last week. In it, I share my 5 tips for getting more readers on Wattpad. Check it out here.

Hey guys!

So much has been happening lately that I need to round up all the awesome in one post! Ready?




50236842-176-k169863SONY PICTURES + THE 5TH WAVE!

Do you love THE 5TH WAVE series by Rick Yancey? Are you super excited about the movie starring Chloë Grace Moretz?

Then I have something AWESOME just for you!

To celebrate the upcoming release of THE 5TH WAVE, Sony Pictures has commissioned me to write a story of my own set in The 5th Wave universe! The first four parts have already been posted to Wattpad, read it free here.


For 17-year-old Kat, the day the little green star appeared in the sky was supposed to be the first day of the rest of her life.

Instead, it became the first day of the end of her life.

24 hours earlier, her doctor was giving her the good news: she was in remission from cancer. The next morning, the world and everything in it had changed forever.

After the 1st Wave hits, Kat’s mother packs up Kat and her sister and they flee their coastal Australian town, searching for safety. But they soon discover that they will never truly be safe again, and the enemy they fear could be much closer than they think.

Join Kat and her family as they fight to survive the beginning of the end. Set in the same universe as Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave, soon to be a motion picture, UNBROKEN is an action-packed adventure you’re sure to love.



I’ve written a brand new story! It’s called WHAT HAPPENS AT SUPACON, and it’s a geeky teen romance filled with fandom, cosplay and fun.

Three friends. Two love stories. One convention.

Charlie likes to stand out. Fresh from a public break-up with co-star Jason Ryan, SupaCon is her chance to prove to the fandom that she doesn’t belong in anybody’s shadow. But with her fans refusing to abandon the Charlie/Jason ‘Chase’ ship, opening her heart to someone new won’t be easy.

Taylor likes to blend in. Her SupaCon dream is simple: meet her idol, Skyler Atkins, a.k.a Queen Firestone. Entering the Queen Firestone SupaFan Contest seems like a no brainer – fangirling is her thing, she’s even got the cosplay to prove it. But paralyzing anxiety is also her thing, and it’s held her back her whole life.

Read it free on Swoon Reads here! And be sure to leave a comment on what you thought or with suggestions on how to improve it.

I’m also posting two chapters a week to Wattpad here.

I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!

“As They Rise by J. M. Wilde is not the typical YA zombie book, but that is because J. M. Wilde is not the average independent author. The narrative voice she utilizes for Eva, the main character and decided heroine of the series, is flawless. The flow of the work was excellent. This series is off to an excellent start! 5/5.” – Fox Emm, ZombieApocalypse.net

“Wilde skillfully combines fun, quirky characters and a terrifying world.” – Rainey, Goodreads review

“This was a delight to read… Eva kicks ass and you can’t help but root for her all the way.” – Rouelle, Goodreads review

“The way the author describes the events in the story really get me excited and even makes me feel like I’m actually in the situation the characters are in themselves.” – A. Claudio, Goodreads review
