Not long ago, a friend of mine recommended getting on Wattpad. I thought she was crazy. I had a very set image of the site in my head, and sorry to say, it was an extremely snobby one. More specifically, I thought it was where all the Twilight fans hung out, writing fan-fiction and alternate endings where Jacob got the girl. (Team Jacob, all the way!) But, this friend is a social media guru, so I begrudgingly followed her advice. And wow. I couldn’t have been more wrong. So many stories. Very cool community. Tons of fun.
At the moment, I don’t have a lot of time for unique content on Wattpad and I’m not to the point I’d like to share my work in progress. To dip my toes in, I posted a short story, Wishful Thinking, in small chunks. I was so shocked to find out it clicked with people. Slowly but surely, my little djinni story is climbing the charts.
The minor success must’ve gone to my head, because I decided to do something I swore I’d never do . . . publish my very first completed manuscript. If you follow me on YouTube, you might’ve seen a video I did recently where I announced that I’d share the book. Every author has that one dreaded book. It’s usually our first. We loved it hard and thought it would change the face of the publishing industry. Alas, that book is a piece of crap that should never see the light of day.
I must not have received that memo, because crappy book, meet the light of day! For your endless enjoyment and laughs at my expense, I give you Faith Among the Flames, my trope-filled, triangle-filled, sappy, manic-pixie-girl first book. While you’re giggling at me, take some time to follow me on Wattpad, comment on my works, and vote for Wishful Thinking.
