This past weekend, I was one of 40 authors promoting my books at WordsFest on the upper level of the Covent Garden Market in London. Because of the timing (having just received my first batch of hard copies of my second novel Risk), the festival became the ideal occasion for an unofficial book launch.
What do Margaret Atwood, Paulo Coehlo and Cory Doctorow all have in common? They’re writers, yes, but what else? Actually, they have all posted their work on Toronto-based Wattpad, as have I. I actually joined a couple of years ago but only began posting my work in the last month or so.
