I’m looking into WattPad to distribute some story ideas. No, I don’t think I’ll use it instead of self-publishing (a guy’s gotta make money SOMEHOW in this crazy world) but I may put up some of my older works.
For now, I have the first few chapters of Death Has a Name. If I start seeing alot of activity there, comments, posts, links, etc I will probably finish the first book that way. I’ve also created a world in which Zombies, Vampires and Werewolves link back to Ogres, Trolls, Elves and Gnomes. Yeah, it’s a bit twisted. I may post some of those short stories and such as well.
Until I know more about WattPad and how it can be used to both entertain you guys (wonderful fan followers) and market to people who (for some STRANGE reason) are not yet my fans, I’m going to be cautious. But I think it’s an idea that holds a bit of merit.
What do you think? Do you want to see stories on WattPad? Are there pros and cons to using that site that you’ve already encountered? Let me know.
