With 2017 just hours away, I find myself reflecting back on 2016.
I have been incredibly fortunate with the success my work has found on Wattpad, the friends I have made and the support of my readers. Your encouragement and enthusiasm has kept me striving towards my goal of finding representation and publication, which I have strong hopes for in 2017. With several manuscripts currently under consideration with publishers and agents at present, I am hoping that good news will be coming soon!
My experiences with Wattpad have extended beyond simply writing and reading from my device, to becoming more involved directly with the venture. Becoming an Ambassador in October 2016, attending the 10 year anniversary party in November, and the adventure that was NYCattcon in October onlly further impressed on the community that is unique to Wattpad. There is no forum better, in my opinion!
I have also met some incredible writers who I have admired for a long time, including Lindsey Summers, Fallon Demornay and the incomparible Anna Todd. Their support and motivation has encouraged me to keep writing, keep taking risks, and their friendship has meant even more!
But to my readers, you are the biggest thanks I have to give. So many times I have thought of giving up, or taking a long break from writing. But your comments, your dedication and your feverish responses to my works has given me the energy to keep writing! Any time I finish one work, I find myself thinking of other possibilities that might delight you! It is for you that I write, and for you that I will continue to do so!
So for giving me a wonderful 2016, I thank you! I hope 2017 is amazing for all of you, and hope to meet more of you soon!
All the love!
