New WattpadFutures program helps writers increase their earning potential
Wattpad writers come from all walks of life. They’re bestselling authors who want to connect with new and existing fans, aspiring novelists who want to build their audience, and casual writers who share stories for fun. Every month, more than 2.3 million writers on Wattpad devote countless hours to writing, editing, and engaging with readers from around the globe. They have many dreams, but share a common goal: to entertain the world with their stories.
At Wattpad, we see and understand the effort put into their stories every day. We also recognize that making money from writing can be difficult – especially for online writers. That’s why, today, we’ve launched the Wattpad Futures program, a simple way for writers to increase their earning potential.
Through the Wattpad Futures program, interested writers can supplement their income with little effort. The program…
Zoe thought the loss of her parents would be the most difficult thing she’d ever have to endure. When she began seeing things she couldn’t explain in her new home of Torchcreek, Virginia, she was sure the grief was driving her mad. Instead Zoe discovers she is part of an ancient bloodline, one destined to defeat the powers of darkness from condemning the world. But Zoe, the daughter of the three, isn’t just another descendant, but the key to humanity’s salvation.
Tabitha Caplinger is the author of “Chronicle of the Three: Blood”, the first installment in a Christian Fantasy trilogy published by BlueInk Press and available on both Wattpad and Amazon. I recently had the opportunity to interview her.
You are the author of 9 self-published novels. Two of your works have won awards, and your book “Devil Went Down” made it to Harper-Collin’s Editor’s desk through Authonomy in 2014 and received a positive review. What book did you enjoy writing the most?
I’m floored that you want an interview from me, and it’s making it difficult for me to focus. Ha!
Anyway, that’s a very difficult question. I once heard an author describe her books as children. This idea totally works for me, because each one is very different, endears itself to me in different ways and caused me to face a specific set of challenges as an author. But if I had to give a direct answer, I would say that Devil Went Down was a ton of fun. It was the first time I experimented with writing from the perspective of a male MC. As a woman, trying to think like a man, and one that had been alive for centuries, was quite the task.
Running a close second was Dawn Rising. It was a blast rocking back and forth between the male MC and the female MC, as well as jumping in and out of the past. There are some great characters in it, too.
When Emma Hart comes across the new bad boy writhing on the floor of her high school, it’s not exactly love at first sight, but it isn’t exactly hate. That is until he refuses to acknowledge her efforts to help and continuously gives her the cold shoulder. And his behavior isn’t just toward her. Connor Harmon seems determined to make everyone hate him.
But after being assigned to work with him on a history project, an attraction starts to build and the mysteries surrounding Connor keep growing. She has to be careful about asking Connor questions about himself, as the one rule when dealing with Connor is that you don’t ask questions about Connor. But why do his “seizures” seem to coincide with worldwide violence? Why has Emma’s friend, Ethan, become so obsessed with protecting Emma from Connor, and who are Ethan’s new friends? Why are they stalking Connor?
