I think Wattpad is ace.

Let me tell you a story. In 2014 I started posting a half-written, abandoned, bottom-of-the-drawer young adult book named 'Silver' on Wattpad. Something crazy happened. People started reading it. And they kept saying 'you have to finish this.' So I did. 'Silver' has now had over 700,000 reads on Wattpad. But more importantly, it gave me much needed confidence as a writer.

Thanks to those cheerleaders on Wattpad I went on to write more young adult novels - 'Repeat After Me' and more recently I've started 'Subject to change'. I'd love you to check out 'Subject to change' ... it's new ... and I'm testing it here ... and I have sweaty palms and I'm nervous ... so be kind!

In the meantime, HarperCollins has published an adult novel of mine - The Replacement Wife - as an ebook. It's available on all good ebook sites. Find out more here: http://outofprintwriting.blogspot.com/p/published-work.html

My blog Out of print writing, about writing and publishing in the digital revolution, has been selected for the National Library of Australia's archive program PANDORA. http://outofprintwriting.blogspot.com/
