BEFORE YOU PUBLISH A NEW BOOK, READ THIS ONE FIRST!
          
          Are you a rookie to Wattpad? 
          
          Are you a veteran on Wattpad?
          
          Are you struggling to get reads?
          
          Are you tired of advice books that were written by people who published before 2013?
          
          Following this advice, I went from less than 1000 reads over four months, to over 5000 reads in five months. I also jumped from under 100 followers to over 400 in the same time period. This book will outline how I accomplished that.
          
          Before 2013, Wattpad had a different way to advertise your story as well as a different way for calculating reads. That is why you'll see people with reads in the millions. 100 votes back then is the equivalent of 10 votes today. Anyone who gained their reads on Wattpad before that time may not completely understand the challenges a brand-new author faces in today's Wattpad environment.
          
          Don't get discouraged. The environment may have changed, but that does not mean there isn't a way to gain reads. It just means we have to use different methods than the veterans of old.
          This book will cover the information I wish I had known when I first published on Wattpad. Unfortunately, it took me months to discover this information.

          Book clubs
          Entering a contest
          Hosting a contest

I found it after I was done editing a chapter. I pressed a link to go to the writer's portal, and found lots of helpful info including yours.

In a reading list of someone that I followed a while ago, I was cleaning out my followers to see if there were any people I was following who I didn't want to be anymore, and I came across this is one of their reading lists.
