Almost exactly one year ago, I posted Website Wonders: Wattpad.com, and I discussed this wonderful website.
Wattpad is a FANTASTIC place where writers can create a profile, tag genres, share stories, and provide fellow writers with their work. (You can also connect it to your Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr). You can ask for in-depth critiques, make friends, and even get book covers, fan art, and encouragement from your readers. And, if you just can’t get enough, there is an APP for your on-the-go cellphone needs.
Personally, I met some GREAT writers, including poets, who gave me unique and structural critique that I found very helpful. But I closed my account on October 30, 2012. I had my reasons for this (mainly because I was in the process of publishing Minutes Before Sunset, and the original version used to be up there, and I didn’t want to spoil it for anyone.)
Here’s my Wattpad account. I’d really love to connect with you all on there, so I can read your stories. (You can also read an additional chapter of Minutes Before Sunset for free!) I’m looking forward to seeing everyone on there.
In other news:
I’ve had the joy of being interviewed twice this week, and I wanted to share some more information about the interviewers:
Jacinda Buchmann, author of Indigo Incite: I feel very lucky to know such a talented author. Not only did she interview me, but she also introduced me to Author Natasha Hanova, a wonderful author in my area. So check out this great lady! You won’t be disappointed. Find out how MINUTES BEFORE SUNSET is different from other YA paranormal books by clicking here.
A Latoya Charlton, host of The Other Side of Paradise: I first came across Charlton via Twitter, and we’ve struck up a great conversation since. This interview was a wonderful experience, and I really enjoyed how unique her questions were. Find out how I describe my readers by clicking here. She also posted a 5-star review: “You cannot deny the chemistry between Eric and Jess; and the strength of their love made me burst into tears numerous times (what can I say, I’m a sucker!). It was a wonderful (and somewhat heartbreaking) love story that left me wanting more. It was well thought of and I am excited for what book two holds. Kudos to the author for such an amazing tale.”
Other recent reviewers I want to thank:
Fetching Figment: “Her unique perspective and prose lead to complete immersion. ‘Silence split the distance between us’ made me feel as though I was right there with them, eager to say something– anything! But I wasblown away when Eric described his transformation into Shoman as ‘I fell out of myself.’ That line was utterly beautiful, and it completely captured the essence of being a teen– ever-shifting styles and interests– falling in and out of one’s self.”
Samantha (Goodreads) ”Minutes Before Sunset was not like your everyday paranormal story. It was different and so refreshing to read.”
Thank you for all of your continuous support!
