I seem to have noticed with a couple of Wattpad books on this site. Some of them do end up getting published, but internationally.
I’ve seen authors and such announce that their book is getting published and all, but it gets published into another country somewhere out in the world (Germany, France, Italy, etc) and not here in the US.
Is there a reason as to why international publishers pick up the book first and not an English publisher? Is it a distribution thing or something else?
And is it possible for someone’s work that gets published internationally to make it be available statewide?
I only can think of two that’ve done it: Chasing Red (Book got published internationally then got an English release. Correct me if I’m wrong on that) and She’s With Me (Book got published internationally, going to be released in English in 2020)
