The Wattpad Block Party (2nd Winter Edition) is upon us. All through February the event will be rolling, with prize giveaways and a ton of featured authors posting brand new work. Here’s how the organiser, Kelly Ann Blount, describe it:
The Wattpad Block Party – Winter Edition II is an epic online event featuring some of your all time favorite Wattpad Super Stars, New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling authors, and up and coming Wattpad writers!
In case there’s any confusion, I’m one of the latter. Each day a new collection of articles will be posted to the Block Party book, with the authors interacting throughout. The articles will be an eclectic mix of writing tips, behind-the-scenes, bonus chapters and the like. If you’re into reading new stuff, and especially if you’re into Wattpad culture, it’s a big deal.
Now, here’s why this is exciting from an author perspective: the Wattpad Block Party – Winter Edition II book went live in November 2015 (with some preview information, as the actual event and content doesn’t begin appearing until February 1st) and here are it’s current stats:
47,448 reads. 2,500 votes. Over 2,300 comments.
That’s for an event that hasn’t actually begun yet. There’s a lot of enthusiasm and expectation already built up and ready to be unleashed through February. I’m hoping it’ll prove a nice boost to A Day of Faces, just like the Story Fair last September.
If you’re intrigued and want to check it out, simply head over to Wattpad and give the book a read. If you have a Wattpad account, add the book to your reading list and you’ll be notified when a new article appears.
As for me, my article will appear on the 27th. All the giveaways are shaping up nicely and I’ll be giving away A Day of Faces ebooks in one of them.
