To Wattpad . . . or Not To Wattpad

As I’m building this blog, I’m considering all that I’d like to see on it—such as “Odd Woman Out”, a cross between chick-lit and mainstream fiction, comprised of weekly installments.

Apparently, next to no one has read it, but then I don’t exactly advertise it.  My posts on Facebook seem to do little.  I’m guessing a) it just plain sucks or b) I’m not “selling” it properly.  As my fragile writer’s ego doesn’t want to believe it’s doggy-doo, I’ll opt for the second reason: I don’t (yet) know what I’m doing.

So-o, I asked the amazing, ever-helpful folks in the SPF Community and received fabulous advice.  If you want to get some traction with your books on Wattpad, do the following:

  • get your book featured
  • follow, vote and comment on stories in your genre
  • be aware that Wattpad caters more to YA, fanfic, and romance (but you can still make inroads, so don’t be deterred)
  • get your book featured
  • enter a contest
  • post regularly / make sure chapters and the like appear regularly, and
  • get your book featured.

. . . I believe I’ll see if I can get my book featured.  <LOL>
