As you might know, I am posting Curse (Book 1 of the Wexkia trilogy) in serial form on Wattpad. Why? I want more people to read it.
As of now, the reads are as follows:
Chapter 1: 149
Chapter 2: 58
Chapter 3: 18
Chapter 4: 10 lol
Chapter 5: 72
I know weird, right?
I don’t mean that instead of the millions of reads other stories (I’ve read some good ones on Wattpad) are collecting, I mean – from 149 reads for Ch 1 down to 10 for Ch 4 to 72 reads for Ch 5.
I guess, I lost a lot of the first readers by Ch 4 but 72 of them decided to give the story another shot. Or quite a few readers have only begun their reading at Ch 5. Either way, I am sending out a great, humongous thank you to those 72. I was getting a bit sad there for awhile. I hope you all continue to read on.
I don’t think, I’ll even take a peek next week. 😉
Now I have to think about what to do with those figures. Find more readers? Probably. Rewrite the beginning—again? Hmmm, unsure. After spending who knows how many thousands of dollars on editing Curse over the years, (I’m too afraid to add it all up) I couldn’t convince my ‘biggest fan’ of the need to rewrite.
Plus, I have other books that need professional attention.
Also, I have so many readers who love Curse as it is, bought the second book in the trilogy and are hanging out for the third. I love you all. One more edit and it should be good to go, I promise. I don’t sell many books, but the numbers are slowly increasing every month.
Who knows? There might be millions of my future readers out there who just haven’t seen or heard of it yet.
Do you read stories on Wattpad? Have you posted a story on Wattpad?
