If you’re reading this blog, there’s a good chance you know me from my books that are on serial fiction platforms such as Wattpad and Radish. If you are, there’s also a chance you may have considered publishing on a platform like Wattpad, if you’re not already doing just that.
You are? Great. I’m here to help!
I’ll be doing a live talk online about what it’s like to publish stories on Wattpad and other serial fiction platforms. I’ll discuss how Wattpad can start your writing career like it did mine, and how it can boost your writing career if you’re already a published author. Plus, I’ll tell you how and why publishing on apps like Radish can let you make money from your fiction. This is all happening on the #RomanceClass Twitch channel.
Because it’s an online talk, you can participate no matter where in the world you’re at and you can ask questions. The talk won’t include topics of writing craft, however, I will explain how online serialized fiction works and how to make your fiction work for the online serial model.
Q. How much will it cost me?
A. Zero. Nothing. Nada. The talk is free. Asking questions is free. The whole thing is free for you to participate if you can make it to the livestream, which will be on November 21, 2020 at 7pm Manila Time (GMT+8). However, if you miss the live or just want to see the whole session a couple more times, you can pay for a subscription to the #RomanceClass Twitch channel. Subscribers will have access to the video of this talk plus a lot of other author and/or book-related videos created by the #RomanceClass community.
Q. Hu dis?
A. You want to know why you should listen to me. Great! The journey of a career author is littered with bad advice from people with more confidence than qualifications. I’ve been there.
For starters, I’ve been publishing stories on Wattpad since 2015. My stories have racked up tens of millions of views on the platform, and my first serialized novel The Billionaire’s Price has hit the #1 spot on the Wattpad romance hotlist a few times. Currently, I have over 235,000 followers. I was one of the first published authors on Radish, and my novel The Billionaire’s Lie was the first story to hit one million views on the app. I’ve earned tens of thousands of dollars from my book sales on the app.
Q. What will I learn from this talk?
A. If you’re a published author, you’ll learn how publishing your books on serial fiction platforms can help you widen your audience and give you a space to experiment with your writing. Plus money! You’ll learn how you can make money on serial fiction apps. If you’re an aspiring author, I’ll teach you what you can do to find your audience on Wattpad and how you can leverage that platform to sell books.
Q. What if I can’t make it on the scheduled time?
A. You really should! But if you can’t make it 7pm on Saturday, November 21, you can get a paid subscription to the #RomanceClass Twitch channel. Subscribers have access to all their premium video content, including online events, live readings, and author training videos such as mine.
Q. What if I want to learn more about publishing serial fiction?
A. I’m running a newsletter program called The Serial Author Toolkit. You’ll get a couple of emails a month from me containing advice, tips, and news on publishing serial fiction. Plus, if you’re part of the program and you attend the talk on November 21, I’ll send you a PDF copy of the deck I’ll present in the video. All you need to do is wait for the password I’ll announce during the talk and have it ready when I email you.
Oh look, a sign-up form!
Everyone in The Serial Author Toolkit program will get an email reminder a couple of hours before the Writing Serialized Fiction for Fun and Profit live talk. If you’re following #RomanceClass on Twitch, you’ll also be notified when we go live.
See you on Twitch!
