If you’re writing a book, and you think young readers might like to read parts of it, how do you get through to the 18-25 demographic? Here’s one way: Publish excerpts on Wattpad.
This Toronto-based site reaches millions of young readers and allows authors to talk directly with them. Authors don’t get paid, but you do get a chance to reach out to a huge audience.
Up to now, Wattpad has been known mainly for teen romance but now they’re turning their attention to non-fiction topics.
You can send in excerpts of about 1200 words and see if you get any traction.
It’s worth a try.
