A few weeks ago, I wrote about my inspiration for the novel I was writing, and the song that also begun my journey to write this story, even though I was in the midst of writing something else. Anyway, ever since I posted my novel on Wattpad around the end of June, it’s gotten about 168K reads (it’s slowed down since I kinda ended the novel), but it’s been an interesting ride so far.
When the story finally first got noticed in July, it was interesting to see the “reads” spike to a thousand a day. Readers read chapter after chapter in a span of one or two days. Some read 45 chapters in a day, and wrote about how much they loved it. I’d like to think I’ve got something good. I’d like to think I’ve got something worth reading.
So if I haven’t been writing much poetry or doing the Daily Prompts lately, that’s why. I’ve been busy writing. And writing some more. Actually I’m editing it, hoping I can get the book published in a few months. Right now, I’m searching for the perfect cover – hence the temporary cover with actress Caroline Dhavernas, who I think is just absolutely beautiful.
So after hiding this story from my very own blog (shame on me, right?), here she is. Finding Sam.
