BiblioCrunch, the closely vetted clearinghouse of service professionals who offer support to authors, will be hosting a Twitter chat tonight at 9:00pm Eastern with Maria Cootauco of Wattpad. BiblioCrunch took over the #indiechat hashtag for weekly conversations in support of self-published authors.
Tonight’s online event will help authors understand what Wattpad can do for them in terms of book promotion. Calling itself “the best place to discover and share stories,” the nearly seven-year-old platform has been described as the YouTube of electronic writing, offering authors a place to share their content with the web. While some of the most popular genres currently found on Wattpad’s platform are romance, paranormal, and fan fiction, the site does host content in other areas as well.
BiblioCrunch CEO Miral Sattar will be tweeting from the account @BiblioCrunch and Cootauco will be found at @Maria_Wattpad. To join in the conversation, follow the tweets under the hashtag #indiechat, and remember to include that hashtag on your relevant tweets as well.
