Tip of the Day: Make the BEST cookie bars you'll ever have - trust me, you won't regret it. Just wear your stretchy pants the next day ;)
About six months ago, I posted my first novel, Anathema, on Wattpad. I didn't know what to expect in terms of readership. I wasn't too familiar with the website or how readers would discover my work.
As of this moment, Anathema has had 987,374 reads. Crazy, I know.
So what is Wattpad?
Wattpad is an online community of writers. Anyone can upload a story to Wattpad, get critiques on their work, form writers groups, make friends, and enhance their writing experience. Or if you're just a reader, it's a great place to find new talent!
My path with Wattpad is slightly different than most. A writer friend of mine suggested I join Wattpad and put me in touch with her Wattpad advisor. I submitted Anathema to them and was thrilled to hear they wanted me as a featured author. I agreed to post Anathema on Wattpad for six months, write a few blog posts for them, and run a contest.
It's been a really phenomenal experience for me. I've connected with so many new readers - readers I wasn't reaching through my regular outlets.
Whether you're a writer or a reader, Wattpad is definitely worth checking out. They have apps for your smartphone or tablet. You can access them online.
Now you're probably thinking... I bet Megg is making money off of this. I bet Wattpad paid her to write this post ... You'd be wrong. I'm writing it simply because I really love Wattpad and want others to check it out. No money exchanges hands between Wattpad and myself. That's right - everything on Wattpad is FREE!
I hope you take some time to check Wattpad out today. If you haven't read Anathema yet, now might be the time to do it. ;)
