Wattpad?

Share |

So, is anyone out there using Wattpad? If you are, can you share how you're using it? Is it to build awareness, get a book deal...? It seems to lean heavily to sci-fi, fantasy, teen fantasy, horror, etc. But then our Margaret A. posted a poem up there as did Vincent Lam. He did a beautiful memoir-ish response to questions about his new book.

Then, too, are Gutenberg files of things like Emerson's Essays (I always have to have those nearby 'c I get thirsty), some Dickens, various Scriptures, etc.

Just to give it some air, I'm tweeting excerpts of my new book and putting them on my personal website. But, hmmm, wondering about Wattpad.
