Reader approved – Swoon Reads
About two weeks ago, I came across this in one of my email subscriptions. Reluctantly I clicked on the link, and BAM!
So, what exactly did I find?
Swoon Reads is an imprint of Macmillan. (Who knew, right?)
Anyway, on this site you can upload any finished novel you might be stowing away, and make it available to the world. Yes, it sounds a lot like Wattpad, but there’s a different catch: If your novel does well enough (I don’t know how well is well enough), then you might get a publishing contract!
Personally, I think this is a deal worth trying out. Already they have had numerous successes, and host a variety of fun ‘communal’ activities and competitions for writer’s to get to know each other.
In pursuit of testing this out, I too have submitted an old manuscript. One of their main pieces of advice is that you are 100% finished with you novel before you upload it, so keep that in mind!
Since signing up and reading is totally free, I would really appreciate it if you’d check out my upload and add it to your reading list:
After you’ve done that (*blushes*) and you’ve perhaps uploaded your own manuscript, comment down below and I’ll add it to my reading list, PLUS do a review on it on sometime in the next few posts!
That’s all from me today, so have a fantastic day and HAPPY WRITING!
