So many amazing things have happened in my writing career in the past year, and most of that started right here on Wattpad, with my incredible Wattpad readers. I truly believe I have THE BEST readers in the universe!

Because of that, today I want to honor my readers (and any new ones who see this today!) with some fun perks, including a sneak-peek at my latest book, an exclusive story release, and more!

(Be sure to read to the end for a chance to enter my #WattpadBlockParty GIVEAWAY!!!!)

BUT FIRST...

A few weeks ago, an anonymous visitor to my website sent me a message. In the course of asking me some kind of writing question, he called my site "delightfully quirky." (Or something like that; I'm paraphrasing.) At first, his comment took me aback... until I realized he was right. I am quirky – in how I write, in how I interact with my readers, in so many ways. And hey, maybe my readers are a bit quirky too! Maybe that's why we get along so well.

So, in embracing, that, today I present...

5 Quirky Perks You Can Expect As One of My Readers:

1. (Sometimes Awkward) Romance

My stories are all about the romance (at least most of them!), but with me you won't find polished, picture-perfect characters who charm their lovers with ease. I am all about realism (and possibly catharsis of my awkward teenage years, but we'll just keep that our little secret), so my characters tend to bumble their way through things in their own, charmingly-awkward ways. In the end, it all works out... except when it doesn't. But that's the fun of stories, right?

2. Hidden Bonuses

Not-quite-spoiler ahead: I hide Easter Eggs in my stories. My readers who have found these know exactly what I'm talking about. But if you don't, let me just say... There may be a phone number you can actually text buried somewhere in my story. Or email addresses and Facebook accounts in some of my books that my characters will actually message you back from. But, you know, I'm not saying for sure... just maybe... ;)

3. Characters Coming to Life

My characters have trouble staying on the page. I'll admit that it's mostly me, not them... but can I help it if they occasionally do Live Character Chats on Facebook with my readers? My characters seem rather confused as to why they're there, but they are generally good sports about it. If you want to be part of this the next time it happens, you can see the chats we've done and be updated on future chats in my Live Chat Group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/CCrawfordWritingCHAT/

(I also host Writers' Chats on various topics in this same group!)
