Most of you by now know that I’ve unpublished Chapter 38 of my Wattpad story The Billionaire’s Price — less than 24 hours after I had published it.
I’ve tried to explain the reason why I did this, but for some reason very few people were able to grasp what I was trying to say. For one thing, almost everyone assumed it was haters that drove me to unpublish chapter 38. Here’s the thing: I never mentioned haters. I never said people were insulting me or my story. All I said was that people were misbehaving in the comments section. People were posting hateful, sexist, violent comments on Chapter 38.
As you may know, I’m now publishing fiction outside of Wattpad. For example, I have a couple of stories up on Telepathic’s Hooked app (“The Breakup”, “Best Friends”). Next year, a new fiction platform called Radish will be launching along with my next serialized romance novel.
What is Radish? It’s an app for reading fiction stories. Some of the stories are free to read but paid users get to read chapters ahead of everyone else. This is an awesome thing, not just for authors (who will be rewarded for all their hard work) but for readers as well. Why? Because when authors get paid for their work, they tend to write more and more frequently. Everyone wins.
