Something fun and a little different that I was asked to take part in over on Wattpad. My part came out over the weekend, but the Decameron Project will be huge when it’s completed (over 100 total short stories by all different, hand-picked authors). Check it out and add it to your library if you’re on Wattpad. If you’re determined to vote for my story “Crotch Dogs,” who am I to say no? 🙂
So I was recently interviewed by Alexis Ohanian for a web-based TV show which was doing a feature on Wattpad. It was a lot of fun. The show is called “Small Empires” and it appears on TheVerge.com. The Wattpad episode is now up on the site – lots of great Toronto footage and a look behind the scenes at the ubercool Wattpad headquarters!
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.
