Over on Wattpad, Petectives: The Webcomic has won a Watty Award for Visual Storytelling! For anyone not familiar with Wattpad, its an online international storytelling community where writers of every imaginable genre can share their work. If you’re a reader, Wattpad is the place to be. I’m dedicating the award to the memory of the real-life Yoshi.
Wow. What an accomplishment! I am familiar with Wattpad and the competition had to be serious. That was no easy win. Congratulations! As you know, we love your work, and in
memory of Yoshi we donated a copy of Petectives to a program that help promotes reading.
Thank you! Awards are nice but that’s an incredibly meaningful gesture on your part and I really appreciate it.
Congrats on your award! As a person who uses Wattpad, though, I could never advise another writer to use it, but that’s just me.
Thank you. Why would you advise against Wattpad? Is it the idea of sharing work for free?
Ohhhh for some many reasons. I can’t even list them anymore. Let’s just say, if people want to see poorly written stories getting popular, go to Wattpad. Or, if they love 1D fanfiction, go to Wattpad. That’s all. Oh, and you lose first publishing rights by posting there.
We are so proud of you and the “real life Yoshi and Gatsby” who have inspired such wonderful fun reads! 😸
