In all sincerity ...this is quite an honor.and accomplishment.....you must be excited as hell..hope you go the distance...(y)(y);)
Thanks brother, it is...I am not sure where it might lead but I will enjoy the ride regardless (purposeful automotive pun employed). I booked my tickets, flight, and hotel to go to the awards in Hollywood. Honestly, I don't expect to win. I just feel very blessed that others who never met me think what I've written is worth reading. The thought is a bit surreal and abstract. It's especially crazy to me when Wattpad shares the details of where the readers reside. This map blows my mind...

PS As a bonus, it looks like my books have no communist appeal! lol!

Well, as it turned out I Didn’t win my genre….but that’s ok.

It was an amazing 2-day experience and WAAAAYYYY better and more professional than I thought it would be. Miles more. No matter what, I’m still a two time (consecutive year) shortlister. I'm still shocked and humbled by that. This year they said 298 made it out of 75,234 novels submitted. Next year I’m going for the shortlist threepeat (with a win!) 🥇

Thanks 🙏 for everyone’s support! It means a lot!

Thanks guys…

Over the past 2 days at the workshop/Awards show, I found out that Wattpad has a few spin off businesses as well. There is something called Infinite Stories that targets sci fi and fantasy. They are also specifically targeting serialized work. Well, I have a finished trilogy with 2/3 books shortlisted. One WP staffer told me at the after party last night that they still could sign me to an exclusive content deal. Not a ton of money but would be a big first step. Wattpad has also sold the movie rights to Netflix and other streaming services and is ramping that capacity up. So u never know. I’ll also explore traditional publishing possibilities in 2023 (e.g. literary agent, etc). Having the 2 shortlisted novels and a complete trilogy ready to go might be enticing to some publishing houses. Anyhow, a lot to be hopeful for going forward. We shall see what develops over the next year.

Regardless, I’m going to continue working on my new project, Brainers. If I can find the time I’d also like to begin working a spin-off from my trilogy called Jump later in ‘23. Wattpad’s Infinite series should have legitimate interest in that project too I would think…
