Milestone Reached: 10,000 #Wattpad Followers

Astronomicon on WattpadWattpad is simply the biggest, and I would say the best, fiction sharing site on the Internet. Over 45 million active users and tens of thousands of authors writing and sharing their works to a simply colossal audience, make this THE site to be if you write fiction.

I’ve been active there for a couple of years and it was very slow going when I first joined. It took a few months for me to find my way around the clubs, forums and systems there but, once I got the hang of it, I began to get a LOT of positive feedback for my books and now receive daily requests for me to hurry up and finish the next book and get that posted there too. Now I’m celebrating reaching the milestone of 10,000 followers. When I joined, I never expected to get more than a fraction of that total.

It’s a wonderfully friendly and helpful community, but don’t worry, if you make a mistake someone is sure to point it out to you. Over the last couple of years, I’ve received some of the most detailed and constructive critiques I’ve ever received online.

I’ve tried out more writing community sites over the years that I can remember, and most of them have been a waste of time but Wattpad is a keeper! As an author, it’s well worth spending some time there every day. Just stay patient and don’t expect instant results.


Astronomicon: The Beginning #FREE #SciFi on #Wattpad

Astronomicon 1: The Beginning FREE on WattpadWith well over 50 million people around the world using the Wattpad phone app and even more using the hugely popular website, the sheer amount of fiction read every day  on Wattpad is truly staggering.

It’s a vibrant community and, over the past year, I’ve gathered more followers there than I ever thought possible, let alone likely.

I’m sure that this has been helped, at least in part, by so many people reading Astronomicon 1: The Beginning there. It has been available for free on Wattpad for some months now.

More recently I added Astronomicon 2: Distant Relatives there too. You can read it here for free.

In my experience, Wattpad is just about the best site on the internet for putting readers and writers together. The community there is active and enormous. The atmosphere is friendly and very helpful. There is a wealth of helpful information and advice and  if you’re an author it’s simply the best place to get feedback on your writing. If you need to improve, have plot holes, grammar mistakes or any other flaws in your work,  people will most certainly let you know but there is hardly any anger or malice there at all.

There’s much more there than just fiction. If you’re a writer, there is a vibrant community in the many clubs and forums, and there are many writing competitions open for you to join too. If you need help with any aspect of writing, editing, planning, character design, dialogue, marketing, cover art etc., there’s always someone willing to help or advise.

Get involved and become much better known in the world of fiction.

If you like to read or write fiction, and you haven’t already been to Wattpad, give it a try. It’s a great place to be, completely free and growing all the time.
