A year ago Wattpad began promoting The Fugitive Grandma as a Featured Story. Since then it has attracted hundreds of thousands readers all over the world. I wrote about my Wattpad experience on Martin Ott's Writeliving blog.
Do I wish all those readers had paid for my book instead of reading it for free? Of course, because then I'd actually be making money and have a shot at writing fiction as a career instead of doing it on the occasional weekend or whenever I can squeeze in time in an airport. But I am incredibly grateful for the chance to be connected to a global audience for my story.
